Our Approach

Relationships are the foundation of our success. Whether you're stepping in to our shop for the first or 50th time, we want to get to know you. As a small staff of bowlers who are passionate about the sport, we stay up-to-date on the latest technology and innovations so you can keep getting better. We look forward to making you part of the Lightning Strikes Family!

Our Story

After years of managing pro-shops, Dave Remp decided it was time to start his own. In 2007, he and Tim Bates partnered with Colonial Lanes to build something unique for Central Florida's bowling community. What began as the area's smallest pro-shop has grown in to the best stocked bowling resource center in all of Orlando. In 2015, Dwain Prather started as a ball technician. Colonial Lanes closed down in 2018 and Dave and Tim found a new location nearby on Curry Ford to serve the community.
