Congratulations!!! You have made the decision to bring your old shuffleboard court back to new condition once again.
Shuffleboard has definitely become one of the most popular sports in America today. We at Sport Surfaces have heard more laughter and seen more happiness around shuffleboard clubs than any other sport facility. This particular sport is inexpensive to play and shuffleboard courts properly constructed are easily maintained at a very low cost.
At Sport Surfaces, you are guaranteed only quality materials and construction used for your outdoor shuffleboard court promising years of play and fun for all.
The construction of a new shuffle board court is similar to that of the construction of a new concrete tennis court.A regulation size, standard shuffleboard courts 6’ wide by 52’ long, with a 6’ 6” standing area at each end, therefore making it smaller than a typical tennis court.
Types of Systems
(1) You may choose to build a shuffleboard court out of concrete. Enough concrete needs to be poured to cover an area approximately 52 feet long by 77 inches wide, at a minimum, for a standard-sized shuffleboard court. The size of the court can always be adjusted to suit your needs, however, the length and width will have to be kept proportionate for more accurate play when building a shuffleboard court. Allowing a little extra room around the shuffleboard court gives freedom for movement and spectators. Once the concrete is dry, you may choose to have it painted. Green is a standard color for a shuffleboard court, but you may paint it any color you wish. Next ,the lines will have to be painted using a stencil through the court onto the concrete. After the line paint has dried, application a shuffleboard wax to the entire area is recommended. This will allow shuffleboard discs to slide freely across the court.
(2) The stained court system will give you a long lasting, high performance court. This surface requires the use of sealers, waxes and glass beads.The stained court does require a level of maintaining, but with proper care, can provide you with a great tournament ready shuffleboard court.
