Our History

Strikers Entertainment Center was established in 1968 as a 10 lane bowling alley, it was originally known as Pine Ridge Lanes. In 1987, Pine Ridge Lanes was purchased by James Sager. James made major changes, including: a 16 lane increase, automatic scoring and a name change from Pine Ridge to Strikers Entertainment Center, as we know it today. In 2016, Strikers underwent new ownership by 3 brothers: Doug Carl, James Carl, and Brother in Law, Rob Sheets. Since the transition to the new ownership, they’ve made major changes. One of the key changes is the addition of Ridge Runners Sports Bar and Grill. The brothers felt that the community needed an atmosphere for those looking to have a leisurely hangout with some great friends over a cold drink. They have also introduced two pool tables, two volley ball courts, and five sets of horseshoes pits. The changes mentioned here are just the tip of the ice berg under the long-term plan for Strikers in serving the local community and creating an all-in-one center for fun and entertainment.
