Outing: Tenpin Bowling at Valley Park

Tuesday 17th January 2023 @ 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm

We’re Going Bowling Again

Back by popular demand! A party of COPSE’s finest athletes enjoyed this outing last year, so we’re doing it again.
I’ll book (and pay for) as many lanes as we have players for, maximum six to a lane.

But how do I sign up for this event?

… you may ask. Well, here’s the answer:


Several people subscribed on Tuesday at the Hall. If you didn’t, I’ll take emails, text messages, Whatsapps, even old fashioned phone calls.

. . . . and how do I pay?

By signing up you commit to paying me the outrageously reasonable sum of £7.45. Averse as I am to handling change, I prefer direct payments to my bank, the sooner the better. Ask me for how.

The Details

You can, of course, just turn up to enjoy the social setting and company of your fellow COPSErs for no charge.

If you don’t know the place, the Tenpin Bowl offers a variety of activities besides bowling – table tennis, pool, arcade games plus café and bar – so you can diversify once there. Also, for eating, there are various fooderies around including Creams Café, Frankie & Bennie’s, Chiquito, McDonalds and Burger King.

In summary:


Valley Park Leisure Complex
Hesterman Way
Croydon CR0 4YA


Lanes will be booked for 8.30. Arrive between 8.00 and  8.15 to be ready to play.

Getting there?

Tram: Ampere Way (9 minute walk, says Google)

How much?

Shoe Policy

I’ve confirmed that, as last time, you can play in your own shoes, but please make sure they’re trainers or otherwise flat-soled. As far as I know there are no shoes available on site.
