Shuffleboard Is Cool Now!! (A long read, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!) In Fact, A Must Read!!

 Shuffleboard Is Cool Now!! (A long read, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!)

This article was first posted in July of 2017.  Every serious shuffler with an interest in growing our sport, should read, should think about what the author is saying!! 

Click on the link below this paragraph. I thought this quote, by Erik Hahmann from the article,  stood out for me: “What I really love about the game is that there is no physical advantage — shuffleboard is a game of touch, feel, and precision,” he says. “An 80-year-old woman has just as much of a chance to win a game as an 18-year-old man. There are not many other sports like that.” Hahmann likes to say that you can learn shuffleboard in five minutes, but you can spend a lifetime getting better at it. And though the physicality of the sport is low, there’s a high degree of mental strain, stemming from the endless strategizing and the ruthless psychological techniques opponents inflict upon each other.” AND NOW TO THE ARTICLE!!

    Excellent read!!!! I am extremely pleased with Erik’s efforts to promote the game in St. Pete to the younger generation in a way that gets those folks out to the courts to enjoy the game and perhaps take their game to the next level of competition!!! Jim Allen and his company still do their part to furnish all the needed equipment required to play the game so that all of us can have the proper tools to compete at every level!!..

    Wow!
    I had never seen this article before; don’t know how I missed it. St Pete had 6 clubs with 10,000 members, can’t even imagine it. I’m always concerned about the # of people playing shuffleboard and the # we are losing. I guess we started losing them longer ago than I knew.
