Would all clubs ensure this season that all their players have a change of footware and that it is used before stepping on any mat. There is a rule in the book covering this but it is common courtesy to do so.
Rule 7 Footwear
Bowling Shoes or any smooth heel-less footwear must be worn while playing on the rink mat, and these must be other than the ones worn whilst travelling to the venue.(Thursday 10 September 2015)
