Went there yesterday to practice for a tournament. Prices were ridiculous because we werern’t league bowlers, which seems to be a problem in the entire Nashville area. The lanes were horrible, not taken care of at all, with the oil all worn off between the third arrows on either side. In short, we quit after the first game as the practice on the terrible lane did absolutely nothing for us. It is apparent at Stikes and Spares (and several other locations) that they are only interested in parties and casual bowlers and are not interested in catering to the serious bowler. I have yet to find a center in the Nashville area that really solicits serious bowlers over kids and parties.

Last year my husband was jumped in the bathroom by 4 guys around the age of 21. Thank god he held his own and managed to hurt 2 of the guys and escape. They tried to rob him. This happened on Sat. night. The weekends are nothing but a social gathering for saggy pant wearing thugs and teenage girls that need an old fashioned butt kickin’ The staff has always been polite to us and have gone out of their way to help us. The cops that patrol the bowling alley just kinda sit around and chat. If I had kids I would never let them go there on the weekend – ever!!

Yesterday 4/13/07, My grandson’s class was at your place to bowl on a Beech HS field trip, when your clerk added another $1 to the cost of
the line after the kids had there shoes ready to bowl. I was in business for 40 years and if one of my employees had pulled such a stunt, especl
on a morning shift they would be gone. Do you undestamd what this has cost you over $12.

This is a PERFECT place to take middle-school students for an earned Merit Trip. Managers are helpful and friendly. Get the reservation and sit back and enjoy good, clean fun.

How bored do you have to be to sit down and do a grading scale on a bowling alley? Seriously, you must be a real loser to sit around and ……..oh, wait. Never mind.

OK, well we get there to bowl and were having fun, not too many people there. The man who was working seemed real nice, he talked to us and everything. But there was a problem. Their ball return ate my ball. It put about a half inch deep gash in the ball. But thanks to the manager they replaced my ball for me. I thank them for that even though my ball did get messed up.

Hendersonville Strike and Spare is a joke. If you are a league bowler you have no respect at all …bowling alley “kids” that work there are really rude. If you go to bowl or practice they always put children next to you who walk up on you constantly…nothing against children we have them, but leauge bowlers know what I mean. Most …not all of the employees seem to care much about anything.

Grading System:
Cleanliness of lanes – B-
Some people don’t even know what a trash can is, so they leave it on the floor, on the bricks, or on the tables. Employees usually don’t do anything about it.
Price – B+
Pretty fair
Ball selection – A-
Nice ball variety
Little Kids control – D
Parents dont give a… about letting their kids run around everywhere. Again, employees usually don’t care.
Loitering control – F
Good lord, why do underage smokers just stand around and do nothing. There’s even a police officer there and HE doesn’t give a… about loiterers. All loiterers do is make trouble, make stupid comments about people, never spend a dime, and so forth. There’s even a sign that says “ABSOLUTELY NO LOITERING ALL VIOLATORS WILL BE PROSECUTED” Heeellooooo!!!!!! We have loiterers!! DO SOMETHING!
Food – C+
Err… so-and-so
Arcade games – A-
Derby Owner’s Club, Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) Extreme with memory card slots, Golden Tee Fore, Initial D, what more could you ask for? Simple, games like Soulcalibur II, Ultracade, Beatmania IIDX, DrumMania, Para Para Paradise 2nd Mix, Pop N Music, King Of Fighters 2003, and one of those Megatouch things you find in bars.
Overall – (not an average) B+
Best ways for this place to improve: Tougher rules about running little kids More loitering control More NEWER Arcade Games (Especially the ones above) Having people kicked out and/or fined for littering.
