I would be willing to bet that there are very few places in town that provide as much fun, family friendly entertainment than Coopers Sport Bowl. Opened in 1959 by Charles Cooper, it is now recognized as the largest bowling center in Madison County. Throughout its decades long run as a hot spot in Anderson it has remained family owned with the 3rd generation now overseeing day to day operation. Coopers boasts 44 lanes in which everyone from the professional to the novice bowler and even kids with the bowling bumpers will feel welcomed. But in addition to hosting multiple leagues, tournaments, cosmic bowling and open time bowling Coopers also has a plethora of other activities. Their “Gone Bananas” arcade is ideal for kids (and kids at heart) of all ages and they have a private party room which would be ideal for hosting a birthday party, bridal shower, or business lunch. And speaking of lunch/dinner, you must stop by and enjoy a wonderful meal at the attached restaurant/pub Shout’s. And if you haven’t already, you must try their famous tenderloin!
Overall Cooper’s Sport Bowl provides entertainment and fun for all ages in a family friendly atmosphere. The next time you are trying to find something to do in town don’t forget about one of the places that helped start it all! We hope to see you there!
