Tom Taylor

Tom has been in the Pro Shop business for 33 years.

Tom is Lafayette’s longest continuous operating Pro Shop operator, and one of the oldest in the state.

Tom does continuing education seminars yearly to keep up on the latest equipment and drilling techniques.

Tom was elected to the Indiana State USBC Hall of Fame in 2019 for his years of service to bowlers and centers from all over the state of Indiana.

Tom has attended Bowl Expo every year since 1998-2023(cancelled in 2020) to see the latest in bowling technology.

Tom has 27 years experience in Lane certification which includes lanes, oil patterns, lane specifications.

Tom does not bowl anymore due to arthritis, but stays very involved with bowling locally, state, and nationally. 

Tom prefers to watch his customers bowl before drilling them a new ball to insure that he fully understands how  they bowl, and what they want in their new ball.

Tom will do custom hand fitting and measuring for every customer.

Tom will drill every customers ball himself.

  Customers should call ahead to make sure I am in, and to be sure we have the equipment on hands that they want. We order often, usually 1-3 day delivery time on most available items. 

Please call ahead before driving a long way to see if we have what you want or can get it.

 Remember, all our ball prices include drilling, so we are the same price or less than the internet sites, plus we warranty what we sell. With the enormous amount of bowling products available today, and the frequency in which they change, we have changed our website so you can click directly on the manufacturers website links below and view the latest in bowling equipment & technology.  If we don't have what you want in stock, we usually can get most items within a few days. Please give us a call to check availability and pricing of any item(s) you want. All our ball prices include drilling, but not inserts. We usually have 80+ demo balls on hand, drilled up for bowlers to try before they buy. We have mostly 15lbs. drilled up, but we do have some lighter weights as well. 10-12-13-14lbs.. Call to see if we have one drilled up that you are interested in.

Thanks for making the Triple Crown Pro Shop your choice for all your bowling needs.
