About Fusion Bowling

  • Fusion Bowling is the only company in the USA that focuses solely on home, amenity, and private bowling alley installations.
  • We have been selected by the bowling industry’s leading manufacturer, Brunswick, as its preferred partner for residential bowling projects.
  • Fusion Bowling is a small company, and we like it that way. Our small crew and production scale allows us to keep a tight rein on quality control.
  • We select each component of our bowling equipment packages with an eye toward high quality, reliability, and ease-of-use… it must be appropriate for the residential environment where a full-time bowling mechanic is not on duty.
  • We love making each project unique. Our customers appreciate our ability to customize their bowling alley to coordinate with their style, colors, lighting, and interior design.

Founders

Ryan Claxton

Ryan handles the administrative side of Fusion Bowling: accounting, marketing, finance, and taking out the garbage. He graduated at the top of his class with an Engineering degree from the University of Florida, and later returned to UF for a Master of Business Administration with a 4.0 GPA. Ryan has worked for engineering firms and spent nearly a decade in multifamily real estate development before joining his brother Matt to start Fusion Bowling. Words of wisdom: Hire intelligent people who have a great attitude, and then train them to do anything. Philosophy: A commitment to “doing the right thing” is a commitment to short-term inconveniences and long-term peace of mind. Ryan enjoys building Lego spaceships with his two sons.

Matt Claxton

Matt oversees project management for each of Fusion Bowling's customers. He graduated with honors with a degree in Electronics Engineering from ITT Technical Institute. Ever since his dad built a 20-lane bowling center when Matt was nine years old, he has been tinkering with, and crawling over and under bowling pinsetter machines. He has been building a wealth of knowledge in the bowling industry and installing bowling alley equipment since the late 1900s! It’s not uncommon for manufacturers of automatic scoring systems to consult Matt on their new product designs. Matt’s desire to install things perfectly is one step away from an obsessive compulsion. He gets his biggest thrills from watching customers smile when they see his finished work.

Who are Fusion Bowling's customers?

  • Homeowners (executives, pro athletes, and folks who just love to bowl and entertain guests)
  • Corporate campuses, multifamily & resort developers, and organizations for whom a bowling alley amenity would supplement their broader strategy.
  • People who need only a small number of lanes (typically four or less). Around 90% of our customers request two lanes.
  • People who have a non-traditional vision about customization and need the “wow factor”. People for whom the bland, cookie-cutter style of traditional bowling centers is insufficient.
  • People who are not experts in the bowling equipment business: architects, builders, and property owners who need a company that will patiently walk them through the process. Very few of our customers have prior experience designing and buying a bowling alley. Thus, it’s par for the course to hold our customer’s hand and take the time to coordinate among subcontractors and designers.
  • People not willing to compromise… builders not willing to risk their reputation with a very demanding clientele, and property owners who want the best product and service possible, period.

Matt Claxton was responsible for the entire installation of my two lanes which are now in operation for several years. Matt was always available by phone to patiently answer all of my questions, and came out to my home multiple times to make sure that everything was in order. I’ve been very happy with my installation and operation. Thank you!

Fusion Bowling’s installation team made themselves available for any trouble shooting problems we had with the newly installed machine. At one point we had a guest with children to play on the new machine. Fusion Bowling came to the facility to do a follow up on the bowling alley to make sure everything was operating properly after installation. This exemplified excellent customer service.
