Keith Spear started in 1981 by opening his first pro shop in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We then moved our main location in 1982 to Deltona, Florida. We opened our third store in Deland, Florida in 1984. From 1985-1991 we conducted services pertaining to the operations of professional tournaments for the Ladies Pro Bowlers Tour. Our next pro shop was opened in 1992 in Daytona Beach, Florida. In 1996 we purchased our first domain name, bowlingball.com and began to envision the future of bowling utilizing the Internet. Our Deltona Pro Shop opened in 2001 and our Ormond Pro Shop opened in 2002. Since 2002 we have added an additional five pro shops within the state of Florida.

It has now been 13 years since we first started on the Internet and 29 years since we opened our first pro shop. We have grown from our humble beginnings to become the largest online retailer of bowling equipment in the world. At first, we simply worked out of our over crowded pro shops, and then when storage became a problem we rented a storage unit near our largest pro shop. We then rented another and then another storage unit until we had over 25 storage units. We consolidated our operations in August of 2002 moving to an 11,000 square foot warehouse housing over a million dollars worth of inventory. As of August 2010 we are now in a 33,000 square foot facility and carry over three million dollars in inventory. We are very thankful to say that we have serviced over 7,000,000 bowlers. We not only carry the complete bowling industry line but have expanded to reintroducing lines, such as Quantum. We also carry hard to find Pro Pins and Pro CG's, once only available to touring professionals. We also currently have the largest private line of Brunswick Viz A Balls in the country. We currently make and distribute exclusive products such as: Disney's Tinkerbell, Spiderman, Support our Troops, Official Jonathan Earl Bowser Angel bowling balls, The Money Ball, The Barb Wire, Monster Jam's Grave Digger, and Mini Viz A Ball Awards, along with many others. Our success is achieved by fulfilling our mission statement, along with the fact that we strive to have fun every day with what we do.
