Shuffleboard table information

a little history lesson!

Shuffleboard has been around in different forms for over 500 years. It was originally brought to America by the British colonists. Shuffleboard has since transformed to be played for decades in taverns, the decks of cruise ships, on concrete slabs at public parks, and on beautiful handcrafted tables in people's homes. If you would like to introduce your family, institution, or business to the classic pastime of shuffleboard- you have come to the right place.

Shuffleboard tables are usually a center-piece for recreation rooms or game rooms. Few table games can compare with shuffleboard tables in the decorative appearance, variety in types of games, multi-player formats, and enjoyment for all ages. One of the great things about shuffleboard is that it is not just one game with a single set of rules. There are different variations of games and rules. Games like Horse Collar, Knock off, and Crazy Eights are just to name a few.

Competition Shuffleboard tables are generally 22ft long. Now tables are sold all in 2 ft increments all the way to 12ft long and even come in 9ft sizes! We generally recommend 2 feet of space at each end of the table to allow space for playability. When choosing the size table you will also need to consider the ability to carry the length of table into your home and make all turns required. We recommend extending an extension ladder to the length you would like and using it as a guide to make sure you can maneuver that length into your home or business. Now that you know what size, let's figure out what type is best for you!

There are three categories of Shuffleboard tables- Commercial , Premium Home, and Home tables. Home Shuffleboard tables are generally between 9 - 16ft long and 28" in width.

Standard Home Shuffleboard Tables

All three of these tables have 1.5" thick and 15" wide Maple butcher block playing surfaces that are already attached to the cradle. They do now have climatic adjusters under the table.

The table is leveled on leg levelers and comes included with everything you need to play with.
