Outing: Tenpin Bowling at Valley Park

Tuesday 9th April 2024 @ 8:30 pm to 10:00 pm

Update Sunday 7th April

Just to confirm that I’ve booked our lanes for Tuesday evening. Thanks to all who responded in time. If you didn’t, but still want to go, we may be able to fit you in so please get in touch. Alternatively you can just turn up on the night, though obviously no guarantee of a place if you do.


We’re Going Bowling Again

Back by popular demand! A party of COPSE’s finest athletes have enjoyed this outing a couple of times, 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 £7.90. 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)


S4 to Franklin Way / Valley Park (8 minute walk)
(NOTE the 455 no longer runs)

189 to Purley Way / Newman Road (12 minute walk)

Alternatively, plenty of car parking.

How much?

£7.90 up front for two games, more on the night if you want to play more

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. Shoes are now also available on site.
