About Buffa Bowling
Buffa Bowling is a full service distributor, pro shop and training center.
It all started as a hobby for Frank Buffa, company founder. What started as a small scale pro shop in his basement quickly turned into an empire. Working from his basement from 1980 to 1990, where he then relocated to the Centre de Quilles 440, his first pro shop inside a bowling center. Sales started to soar and distribution of product was starting to get difficult in a small sized pro shop... he needed a warehouse.
In 1994, the Buffa Bowling warehouse was opened. Year after year, expansion of the warehouse was done to accomodate for more product brands and more quantity of product to better serve all the pro shops and bowling centers in the surrounding area. In the following years, Buffa Pro Shops were all across the island of Montreal, with locations at Laurentian Lanes, Centre de Quilles 440, Paré Lanes, Boulevard Lanes and Cloverleaf in Kingston, Ontario. In the late 90's, Frank Buffa's coaching was becoming world renowned. Putting more emphasis on coaching, all the pro shops were then closed, leaving only the pro shop at Buffa Bowling headquarters.
In the summer of 2003, the Studio Buffa training center was born, along with the expansion of the new warehouse. The Studio Buffa training center is a 4 lane facility with all the computer systems needed to analyze your game from A to Z. Bowlers MAP Gold, Digitrax and C.A.T.S. are all set up to give you a better grasp of your game.
Frank Buffa's coaching career started with the Italian National Team in 2000, which then was followed by UAE from 2003 to 2006 and ending in Qatar from 2006 to 2009. He is now an ambassador for the USBC Coaching division and a certified USBC Gold Level Coach.
