Notice - Please Read

As of August 25, 2021masks are mandatory inside all public spaces in British Columbia.  This includes Brechin Lanes.

  • Masks must be worn at all times, including while bowling.  Masks may be removed to consume food and/or beverage.

As of August 13, 2021, as per Province of BC Public Health Order, people aged 12+ will need to show proof of vaccination in order to bowl at Brechin Lanes.


Stage 3 Is Here!  What's Changed?? Now that BC has entered into Stage 3 of the Restart Plan 2.0, there are some important changes to how we operate.

  • We are now able to operate at 100% capacity (i.e. 75 people, excluding staff)
  • We are now able accommodate groups of more than 6 people (no limit on group size)

As part of the Province of British Columbia's Restart Plan 2.0, Sports and Recreation facilities are permitted to be open with certain restrictions.  At Brechin Lanes and Escapism Escape Rooms, we have worked hard to get the measures in place so that we can once again open to the public in a manner that is safe for all.  View our Communicable Disease Prevention Plan. We are also following the Bowling Centre Best Practices, as compiled by Bowl Canada - view HERE


Both bowling and escape rooms will be available by reservation only.
