Shuffleboard is currently enjoying a huge resurgence in the UK, with many bars now offering opportunities to try your hand at this terrifically entertaining game.
How to play
The game is played on 14 ft shuffleboards, by two opposing teams, each consisting of either one or two players each.
Each team will have four pucks and they will take alternative shots from the same end of the table. After all, eight shots have been taken then the both teams will rotate to the opposite end of the table.
There will be two judges at the tournament.
The aim is the get your puck as far up the playfield as possible, once all eight shots have been taken then the two pucks the farthest up the playfield will have their scores counted according to the scoring numbers on the playfield.
