Per Mayor Bowser, effective Saturday, July 31 at 5:00 a.m., all people over the age of two must wear a mask indoors unless actively eating or drinking, regardless of vaccination status.
NOTICE: Lanes are no longer private with minimums. You can book for any number of guests, but if you book for less than 8, you may be paired with other people. We say it's a great way to make new friends!
Are you a bar & restaurant where we can just come & have food & drinks?
Yes! Get the flock in here to grab a tropical drink, some tasty bites, and lounge in a cabana - yes, we have cabanas! You can even reserve them online HERE. We offer bottle service; and other fun add-ons, all bookable at check-out! Contact Special Events firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve events for 20+ people, bar & food packages, or multiple cabanas. Note: We have a second bar downstairs at our sister location, Kick Axe Throwing®.
*WE ARE 21+ AFTER 9 PM ON FRIDAY & SATURDAY
Do we have to reserve a Cabana to come hang out?
No! We have plenty of other seating that is available on a walk-in basis.
Do you have Golden Girls shot glasses for my drinking pleasure?
And Flabongo™ beer bongs??

How much does Curling & Football Bowling cost & do I have to pay upfront?
The cost is $24+tax/pp for a 60-minute Curling session and $29+tax/pp for a 45 minute football bowling reservation. You can reserve and pay online HERE (highly recommended to ensure availability) or you can do it onsite. If you want to do it onsite, realize that we start court times at fixed times, so you may have to wait a few minutes (or not be able to play on busy nights) for the next session. Reservations are fully refundable up to 24 hours before. Book HERE!
Walk-ins - How do they work?
We welcome walk-ins! There may not be availability to play during busy times but you can book for a later time (have a drink & some food while you wait)! To guarantee availability, definitely reserve your Throw Social™ experience online! When we do have walk-in space, reservations start at fixed times, so you may have to wait until the next available start time... kind of like walking into the movies. :)
For current availability, click HERE.
If it shows spaces are available, your best bet is to just reserve the spots!
Do I need a large group to play?
Come alone or bring your flock. Those that don't have 8 people & don't mind potentially playing with new friends can book for however many they have.
Can we just get a court to ourselves?
Eight (8) tickets translate to one court/lane to yourselves. To be the only guests in a court, purchase 8 tickets on our booking page. If you purchase fewer than 8 tickets, you may just share the court with some new pals!
Once you have a court to yourselves with 8 tickets, this means you can also purchase up to 2 "extra" tickets for that court during check out under options, maxing out at 10.
Do I need to book a Special Event if I just want TWO of the activity courts for my gang?
No, you can just reserve the two lanes and order off the menu. NOTE: Pre-paid Food & Bar Packages are only available to groups of 20 or more, or for events two hours or longer.
**EXTRA TICKETS are ONLY available with full-court bookings of 8 tickets!
More than 20? Contact us at email@example.com!
We are all booking separately so we can pay for ourselves. Will we get to play together?
Let us know if you are booking with other parties in the notes section at checkout (pick one name to say you are ‘with’). We will do our best, but the only foolproof way is to create one booking under one name.
I don't want to play, I just want to come hang with my friends and watch.
Flocking awesome! Come have a drink & some food - just be aware of the following:
For Football Bowling; you won’t be able to go into the football bowling court but can watch through the net along our drink rail.
For Curling; we can only fit 8-10 at the rink but you can watch from our high tops or cabanas. Note: cabanas are reservation only so if you want to guarantee a hang-out space, we recommend reserving one. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get on the books or talk to us onsite!
What ages can play at Throw Social™?
We welcome everyone at Throw Social™! For safety reasons, only ages 5 and up can participate in Football Bowling but any age can do the iceless Curling. We do ask that all children be kept under the direct supervision of an adult at all times.
*NOTE: WE ARE 21+ AFTER 9 PM ON FRIDAY & SATURDAY
What is your Lateness Policy?
PLEASE PLAN TO ARRIVE 15-20 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR START TIME for activities! You can always grab a drink or put in a food order if you are early.
If you arrive after your start time and do not have the court to yourselves, you may have to wait until a round is finished before playing.
You are fine if you have the entire court booked to yourselves - your playing time will just be shortened to end at the regular time if there are guests after you.
Birthday Parties, Team Building, Bachelor(ette) Parties... are they hard to arrange?
We make it easy! If you only need one cabana and one lane of Football Bowling or Curling, you book yourself online without contacting us. You can even bring store-bought (per health code) cupcakes for your event without letting us know in advance. For parties of more than 8-10, just email us at email@example.com. More information about our Special Events can be found HERE. You can even reserve cabanas HERE online and add packages. Please contact us for groups of 10+.
Our Special Events department can also help you if you want food or bar packages or a multi-hour session. For weekend events, try to contact us as far in advance as possible! NOTE: Pre-paid Food & Bar Packages are only available to groups of 20 or more, or for events two hours or longer.
Do you offer catering?
Yes! But if you are a smaller group of 20 or less, you can just order off the menu. For catering or food packages for groups of 20 or more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about our Special Events can be found HERE. NOTE: Pre-paid Food & Bar Packages are only available to groups of 20 or more, or for events two hours or longer.
Can I book an event outside of your normal hours?
What is your cancellation policy?
You don’t want to curl or toss a football? You will get a FULL REFUND up to 24 Hours in advance of your time. Sorry, but within 24 hours there are no refunds. :'(
If you have booked a Special Event, the cancellation period is 5 days before your reservation.
Can I change or cancel my booking online?
Yes! Up until 24 hours before your reservation, just go to your confirmation email and click the orange View/Change Booking button. You will be able to change the date & time (if available) or cancel. If you have a court to yourselves (your original booking was for 8 people), you can add up to 2 tickets yourself. Of course, you can always email us, too, at email@example.com.
Will we be taught how to play?
Each activity has a Fun Facilitator that is available to go over the rules. We also have the game play posted at each court.
Are you handicapped accessible? Can I play if I am in a wheelchair?
Yes, and yes!
Can I buy Gift Certificates?
Yes, please? Throw Social™ Gift Vouchers are fantastic gift ideas for that person who has everything (or just likes to do everything)! Plus they will probably bring you along! Buy one HERE.
Where can we find our photos?
We post on our Throw Social™ Facebook page in albums by date. Please tag yourselves and share!
