San Francisco has become the location of a storm that is brewing in the midst of a lively urban social scene. Many residents and Bar-goers may become familiar with long 22 foot waxed tables we call shuffleboards in the coming months as many enthusiasts have remarked that the time is right.
Although the shuffleboard has been most popular in Texas and Oklahoma, many are confident that the tides are beginning to turn with organized events like Heineken’s traveling shuffleboard tournament. This year, organizers brought the fun and games to several sold out bars in the city of Atlanta to a surprising turn out.
History of Shuffleboard
Shuffleboard became popular in the early 1940’s but interest began to wane in the 90’s. Yet and still, this short lived movement was able to raise a powerful and dedicated following of players who would attest to the games attraction. Fast forward to the new millennium, an aging generation of experienced shuffleboard players have noted the dire need of skilled players who are in their youth. Enter San Francisco’s Shuffleboard Renaissance.
The advent of the Shuffleboard has been debated. Some say it dates back to the 1500’s! Image via Ziegler World.
