UKSA v TEAM GERMANY – DAY 2 Sat 7th May 

Day 2 of this international meeting began promptly on another super early summer morning in Wymondham with the conclusion of the first round robin group of matches. The German domination over their less experienced hosts continued but the Brits were learning fast what competitive shuffleboard was all about. There were notable wins on the final day for Bob Smith, Cathy Seaman, Sandy Harding and Pete Davis. The next phase was a shorter round robin ending in a final win for Germany by 84pts to 24.  

The entire UK team were in agreement that the German squad were a credit to both their country and to the sport of shuffleboard. They were magnanimous in victory and gracious in the occasional defeat, but, above all, were just great fun to be around. The encouragement and advice that were offered will ensure that the Brits return as better, more knowledgeable players in next years European Championships. Dieter Hussmann’s organization of the match schedule also demonstrated how you make an event like this run so smoothly. 

The visit concluded on Saturday evening with a dinner for over 30 people in one of Wymondham’s plusher restaurants followed by a quick dash to the pub. It was a wonderful evening with lots of laughter, a few party tricks, and friendships that will last for many years thanks to this great sport that we all enjoy so much. The visitors were wished a safe trip home secure in the knowledge that shuffleboard had taken another significant step forward in Europe.

    What a giant step forward for shuffleboard in Europe! Its nice to read about the success on the courts, but maybe even a bit nicer to read about the friendships and the relationships made off the courts. Congrats to everyone involved – the UK team as well as the German team!
