Socialize and Play with This Fun Shuffleboard Group

Michael Johnson, Daily Sun

Don Greenlee, of the Village of Bonnybrook, picks up a puck with the end of his cue as he plays shuffleboard at the Coconut Cove Recreation Center on Dec. 7, in Wildwood. Greenlee picked up shuffleboard when he moved to the Villages and has competed in the Village, State and National Senior Games.

Think of it like curling, only without the sweeping motion of brushes trying to push a huge stone down sheets of ice. Outdoor shuffleboard involves pushing colored discs with a cue stick down a narrow court toward the scoring area. And while it was originally a game played at sea on the decks of luxury liners, once the game moved on land, shuffleboard became a huge hit among retirement communities. The Villages is no exception, of course. There are plenty of opportunities to play as part of a league or on a more social level. The social aspect is what drew Carol Carpenter to create the Shuffleboard Fun group for those who want to enjoy the game and meet new people without the formality of league play.
