Customers should call ahead to make sure I am in, and to be sure we have the equipment on hands that they want. With the Covid - 19 being a large influence on the bowling business, we cannot stock near the equipment we used to. We order often. Usually 1-3 day delivery time on most available items. There is currently a large shortage of bowling equipment due to the pandemic. Many items we try to order are back ordered currently. Bags & shoes are the most affected. Older bowling balls(2020 Models) have been pushed to the back of the pack due to new balls selling so well currently.
Due to the uncertain times we live in today, the Triple Crown Pro Shop cannot stock near the bowling inventory we used to. If bowling would happen to get shut back down again this year due to the Covid 19 Virus, we cannot justify keeping thousands of dollars of quickly outdated inventory in stock like we have in the past. We usually can get most items within 2-3 days. We hope you understand our position we are faced with. If you let us know what items you want, we will be glad to order them in. Remember, all our ball prices includes drilling, so we are the same price or less than the internet sites, plus we warranty what we sell. With the enormous amount of bowling products available today, and the frequency in which they change, we have changed our website so you can click directly on the manufacturers website links below and view the latest in bowling equipment & technology. If we don't have what you want in stock, we usually can get most items within a few days. Please give us a call to check availability and pricing of any item(s) you want. All our ball prices includes drilling, but not inserts. We usually have 80+ demo balls on hand, drilled up for bowlers to try before they buy. We have mostly 15lbs. drilled up, but we do have some lighter weights as well. 10-12-13-14lbs.. Call to see if we have one drilled up that you are interested in.
Thanks for making the Triple Crown Pro Shop your choice for all your bowling needs.
