The Size of the Shuffleboard Table
When it comes to the type of shuffleboard table, the first factor everyone should think about is the size. This is arguably the most important factor to consider.
In general, shuffleboards are going to start at around nine feet in length. Some providers will offer shuffleboard tables starting at eight feet. The longest shuffleboard tables go all the way up to 22 feet in length.
The most popular choices are 12’, 14’ or 16’ boards. If these are too long for your space, the 7' Bank Shot Shuffleboard by Champion could be a perfect fit.
Whatever length you choose, it is critical to make sure there is enough room to fit the shuffleboard table.
Measure the space where you will place the shuffleboard. We recommend at least 2 feet of clearance on either side of the table. More space would be nice but two feet should be the minimum. This will make sure that people aren’t cramped as they play.
Consider how you will bring the shuffleboard to that space. For example, if you plan to put your shuffleboard in the basement, how will you get it in there? A door directly into the basement would be ideal. If not, how wide or tall are the hallways that you will need to carry it through? Will you or the delivery team have room to navigate around corners? Measure the height and width of any hallways or staircases you will need to carry it through.
The Material of the Shuffleboard Table
After considering the size of the shuffleboard tables, the next factor to consider is the material. There are lots of types of shuffleboard tables including Russian Birch, Canadian Soft Maple, White Maple, and North American Maple Wood. Remember that shuffleboard tables face the risk of damage in the form of dropped pucks. If a shuffleboard table has been damaged, it can be expensive to fix. Therefore, it is important to invest in durable wood that can endure the force of strong impacts.
The materials listed above are durable. They are virtually immune to dings, dents, and other forms of accidental damage. The top materials on the market are birch, mahogany, oak, and hard maple. These can also be expensive; however, it is also possible to finish a cheaper shuffleboard table, allowing it to withstand impacts more easily.
Selecting the Finish of the Shuffleboard Table
Finally, it is important to think about the finish. There is a high risk of damage while playing on shuffleboard tables, particularly if there are beginners involved. The most popular finishes are shellacs and lacquers; however, these are not that durable. The most durable finish is epoxy resin. Often, manufacturers are so confident in this finish that they are willing to provide a lifetime warranty. This finish also makes it easier for the playing puck to slide across the shuffleboard table.
