Hello everyone! For those who don’t know me, my name is Robert Covey and I own and operate Custom Bowling Services, Inc. at Ward Parkway Lanes in South Kansas City. Looking back over the years it strikes me that I’ve had a blessed life with two great careers.

In today’s world, there are many folks who are struggling more than many of us and I would like to ask my current and future customers to help the neighbors in our community by bringing 25 6-7.5 ounce cans of tuna to Custom Bowling Services when you purchase your next ball or bring in an undrilled ball from the internet and you’ll receive free drilling (a $55.00 value)!
Bring in 10 cans and receive a free Detox!

Your One-Stop Shop for Everything Bowling!

Bob Covey first opened Custom Bowling Services, Inc. in Maywood Bowl in Independence, MO. in 1987 until Maywood Bowl closed in 1989. We then became a home-based business for the following 6 years. In 1995 we moved into AMF Northland Lanes. During 1996 Don Moss became a partner and we acquired the shop in AMF Antioch Lanes until its closure in 1999. We opened a third location in 1997 at Belt Bowl in St. Joseph, MO, and operated until 2004 when Don's health no longer permitted him to work in the environment. We moved to our present location in Ward Parkway Lanes on Valentine's Day in 2000. In 2005 Dan Wheeler acquired Don Moss's interest in the shop.
