We're tossing around the idea of adding a shuffleboard table to our basement... hoping that a few pinsiders owners can chime in on what to look for and what the minimum size should be.

Seems like price ranges are all over the map...as are sizes.

I wouldn’t go any less than 12’ fit and if you can afford it I would go with a solid wood top over laminate as it can tend to separate at the edges

I’m thinking 14ft might fit best... is that long enough to have competitive games? Or will it start to feel too short quickly?

Maybe it's partly because I only played on a 22' Shuffle Board when I was in the teens,
and that's the size I have in the basement, but me myself, I couldn't go shorter..
I recently played on a Friend's 16', and if you haven't ever played on one longer, perhaps
it's fine, but for me it didn't do it..
Although I had never played one, I think maybe a 10 or 12' rebound shuffle may be an
interesting piece to play..

22 is just too long for out space... perhaps 16 would work. How much room do you need on either end. I’m guessing at least 2 feet?

#6 2 years ago

Yes, very minimum of 2 feet. If I had room for only a 16' machine, it would probably be
a ball bowler..
Is there a place that sales different size Shuffle Boards fairly close by that you can try
out? Maybe you'll be fine with a 16 footer?

Just remember a 12’ table will probably be close to 14 in complete length and 14’ be close to 16’ and so on. Agreed have at least 2’ space on each end for players 3-4’ would optimal

Quoted from Stretch7:

I’ve only played a few times but two feet on the ends seems way too tight. I would think at least three at a minimum?
