Valparaiso Recreation Center Expands

The 32-lane bowling alley is part of Inman’s Family Entertainment Center that has something for everyone of all ages. You wouldn’t realize it, but the act of bowling itself has a steady turnover. Therefore, the CDC “250 person” rule doesn’t really effect the bowling facility, because bowlers are naturally turning over anyway. “Our bowlers are wanting to bowl, they are very happy to be back bowling and really enjoy that they can bowl again,” stated owner Mike Peuquet.

The summer leagues are back in full force and they have only lost one client. During the Pandemic their sales were only down about 20% and all Fall Leagues returned except one, and it’s completely understandable in that particular case.

Once inside, you will find sanitizer all over the place, and they sanitize each ball after use, and sanitize the entire bowling station after each bowling party leaves. Inman’s has added and expanded the outdoor patio for those that feel more comfortable outside, as shown in the photo above.

“During the Pandemic we closed all outside activities. We really didn’t think the Miniature Golf and the Go Carts could be safe,” stated Mike Piquet. “We also closed the roller skating and expanded the arcade area to allow for more social distancing. The games are now very widely spread apart than they were before,” he continued.

Inman’s also has 8 billiard tables and air hockey as well, (open till midnight on Fridays) The bar offers a full service drinks and there’s also pizza, burgers, desserts, appetizers, chicken, hot dogs, and snacks available for purchase.

Since opening Mike would like to thank the Valparaiso Community and the Mayor Murphy for their support, loyalty and appreciation. “The community has been really supportive and really amazing during this time,” finished Mike.

Upcoming events include summer leagues/tournaments;  youth/adult doubles Have-A-Ball; social distancing House Shot Hero’s individual league; and Shaun’s King of the Hill Tournaments. Inman’s was voted Best Bowling Facility of the Region in 2020. Inman’s is located at 3201 Evans Ave., Valparaiso Indiana and can be Reached by calling 219-462-1300 or visiting inmansvalpo.com.
