12X Bowling was founded in 2015 by Craig Hood & Tyler Hood, after receiving their Bronze Coaching Certifications from the USBC.
The company was originally formed exclusively for coaching, which meshed well with their winter hobby of coaching high school bowling. Fast forward to about a year later, when they both decided they wanted to do something more in the sport of bowling. Their opportunity came when they began discussing the idea of building a pro shop in Shelby Lanes. The owner of Shelby Lanes suggested an idea and provided a great space, and 12X Bowling took occupancy on June 1, 2016 and began remodeling shortly after that. It was a long, sweaty summer, but 12X Bowling Pro Sho opened their doors to the public on Monday, August 22, 2016!
