There is nothing more exciting and fun for the entire family than a shuffleboard table, and there are plenty of options to choose from if you’re interested in buying one for yourself. Today, we’ll discuss the basics of shuffleboard, things you should consider when buying shuffleboard, and finally, the best shuffleboard tables out there this year.

It can be overwhelming to shop around for shuffleboard tables, but by the end, you’ll be confident in the fact that you’re purchasing the right shuffleboard for your home.

Let’s get started.

The Basics of Shuffleboard

You might find a shuffleboard table for sale, and when you’re shopping and looking for the best model out there, you should be familiar with some basic information about the game.

To put it briefly, shuffleboard is a game that can be played in any home game room, and the premise of the game requires you to slide a puck into a high-scoring zone. The catch here is, that you can’t let your puck fall off the shuffleboard table, so you’ve got to be precise. You can’t overslide the puck, or you’re not going to score any points.

The game has three zones: zone 1, zone 2, and zone 3. In order to score the highest number of points, you’re going to want to get your puck in zone 3. Shuffleboard is incredibly fun for players of all athletic abilities, and now that you know about the game, let’s discuss some things you should think about before you purchase a shuffleboard.

What to Consider When You’re Buying a Shuffleboard

Like all major purchases, you should consider certain factors before purchasing a certain expensive product. When it comes to purchasing a shuffleboard table, you’ve got to consider these factors because if you don’t, your table might not work for your home and lifestyle.

Most importantly, you’ve got to ensure that your shuffleboard table is going to fit in your house comfortably. Otherwise, you’ll have nowhere to put it! Before purchasing your shuffleboard table, it’s a good idea to think about where the table will go. Whether you put the game in a game room, a playroom, someone’s bedroom, or the living room, you’ve got to know the dimensions of the space before you purchase the table.

The second most important factor to consider is, “How will the installers deliver the shuffleboard?” Shuffleboard playfields are long and extremely heavy. A 12’ Shuffleboard, for example, has a playfield that is 11’ long, averaging 280 pounds, and is not flexible. Stairs and sharp turns can make it difficult, or downright impossible, to deliver these into certain areas of the home. This should play a major part in determining where you’re going to place your shuffleboard table.

If you opt for a professional table, it’s going to be 22 feet long, and more often than not, you’re going to need a specialized room to hold a table of this size. So, it’s vital that you know how big the room that the table will be in once you know how big of a table you want.

Furthermore, it’s a good idea to know what kind of material you want your shuffleboard table to be made out of when you’re shopping for shuffleboard tables. Historically, shuffleboard tables have been made from North American maple wood because this hardwood will not warp when confronted with bad weather or extreme humidity. But these days, some tables are made of lesser quality wood and rubber, and these tables can be great if they are made well.

The material that you choose will depend on how advanced you are as a player and your price range. Of course, the professional tables are made out of North American maple wood, but there are plenty of options that are great for novice players that aren’t made out of this material. Be sure always to consider all the options before you make your purchase!
