At Dundonald Ice Bowl your safety is extremely important to us. Please take time to read the following centre rules that will help make your visit an enjoyable one:

  • Customers are advised to check our revised opening hours for the Bowling Centre. 
  • Pre-booking and payment for all bowling sessions is essential. Walk-ins will not be permitted and customers will be declined entry without a prior booking.
  • To meet government guidelines for gathering limits and social distancing, numbers will be restricted to 6 family members per lane or a maximum of 4 non-family members socially distanced per lane. Only alternative lanes will be in operation.
  • To avoid queues customers are asked to arrive 10 minutes before their allocated time. Customers will be met at reception and taken to their lane.
  • Customers must use the hygiene stations available on each lane and throughout the centre for the safety of all patrons.
  • Screens will be in place between lanes and social distancing rules will apply. Customers must adhere to the one way system in operation throughout the centre.
  • We are unable to hire bowling shoes at this time.  Customers should therefore wear trainers or flat shoes for bowling. No heels or open toe shoes are allowed.
  • Customers will be assigned dedicated bowling balls during their visit and the console areas, seating and bowling balls will be sanitised prior to the next customer.
  • Bowling can only be booked for a 1 hour session per day per customer. Pre-booking is essential. Walk-ins will not be permitted and members will be declined entry without a prior booking.
