BOWLING

  • Jun 18, 2014 · 8:00 PM

We've had several requests for a bowling meetup, so here it is!

The website for Bowlplex is here: http://www.bowlplex.co.uk/ From setting up a few hypothetical parties, it looks like the minimum is 2 games, at £12 per person. This bowlplex is close to Birmingham town centre and is walking distance from the main train stations and bus stops.

It looks like their student and offer nights are not on Wednesdays, so it shouldn't be too busy and I doubt we'll need to book in advance. That said, closer to the date I'll see if I can book a group without having to pay until we get there.

The limit is set at 12 RSVPs as this would be 2 lanes worth of people (someone correct me if I'm wrong and you can have more than 6 people in a lane!).

    I'm going to be finishing work early tonight and will probably get there early. Anyone else too? :)

    Nikki are we dead set on 8pm start? Just thinking of anyone who has to get home via train or anyone who lives a way away :)

      Since it's an 8pm start I'll probably get food before. I'll be there on time or whenever I finish my dinner

      I'm aiming to get there for 8 =) it's a fairly loose plan, like you said Malcolm it doesn't take long to bowl so even if we didn't start until 9 it wouldn't be a major problem =)

    I called the bowlplex on Sunday to see if I could reserve any lanes. I can't do that without a 50% deposit, which I'm not keen on as sometimes people can't make it out in the end.
    The lady I spoke to on the phone said that they only had 1 lane already reserved though and so it shouldn't be a problem to just turn up.
    That said, in the unlikely event that there are no available lanes, we'll still hang out and will likely just go to a local pub for plan b =)

      They also have a ton of pool tables upstairs so that's another option

    I might be a bit late but I should be there by 8.30 at the latest and probably earlier.
