Mosman Park bowling Club on some occasions wish to take photographs or video of events for promotional purposes. These images may be used in mediums including publications and promotional material, broadcast, print and electronic media.
MPBC agrees not to use any photo/video in a manner that may be deemed adverse or defamatory to the person signing this form, and it will not use the photo for any commercial gain.
By agreeing to the Mosman Park Bowling Club Terms & Conditions you provide consent to the above.
Only bare feet or socks on the greens – except if you wear PROPER bowling shoes. The greens are not licensed – please do not take drinks or food onto the green. You can carry your drinks around the perimeters of the greens only. Children under 10 years of age are not permitted on the greens. Children over 12 years of age must be always supervised. There is no running or playing on the greens. Please do not “DRIVE” the bowls (ie bowl them very fast) – it is dangerous. Also please do not ‘Throw’ the bowls as this damages the greens. The correct action is to bend at the knee and roll the bowl. When finished, please replace the bowls in correct “sets” back into the bowls locker that they came from.
All bowls are to be returned to their original box after your bowls session.
Our bowls instructors are our valued members and volunteers so please treat them with kindness and respect. Your bowls instructor has the right to terminate your bowls session at any point if they believe your function is not abiding by the Club’s rules and regulations regarding the greens or the safety of other patrons.
The Club requires functions to book their instructor for a specific time and the organiser is responsible for everyone in the party attending this instruction. If guests are late or miss the instruction, it is the member/day member’s responsibility to relay the information.
Children in Attendance
For their safety, and that of all other guests at Mosman Park Bolwing Club, all children must be supervised by an adult at all times.
The Club is unfortunately not blessed with sufficient space to provide a special play area (either inside or outside) for young children. General rules apply: children are not permitted near the bar or to be served at the bar. When outside, they are welcome to use the lawns around the green for moderate activities but must not play on any of the greens.
The Club can provide a few books, toys, and a few games. Those with electronic devices can also utilize the club WiFi if that is preferred. Children of 12yrs and older are welcome to bowl with a function but must be fully supervised by a responsible adult. For children 12yrs and under, children’s bowls can be provided by the bar. These bowls are to be signed out and returned to the bar after use and a bond may be required.
In some cases, for larger events that require an extended trading permit, security may be required. If this situation occurs, the hirer will be responsible for any costs incurred for additional security.
Smoking is permitted ONLY in designated areas.
