How long do I book for?
Depends on the your number of people! For groups of 2-4, 1 hour is often enough. For groups larger than 5 we highly recommend 90 minutes or two hours, which allows time for safety, training, coaching, games, tournaments, trick shots, and more! We take pride in tailoring the experience to what you're most interested in. If you'd like to stay longer, we're happy to extend your stay if our availability allows.Do I have to make a reservation?

One lane (two targets) fits 2-8 people.

To avoid this, give us at least 24 hours notice if your group size changes.
