Shuffleboard Construction Details
The size of the court can always be adjusted to suit your needs, however, the length and width will have to be kept proportionate for more accurate play when building a shuffleboard court. Allowing a little extra room around the shuffleboard court gives freedom for both movement and spectators. Regulation courts are 39′ long x6′ wide for the playing surface and the recommended total dimensions10’wide x 52’ long for a single court. The slope or pitch of .05% to .15% is acceptable depending on the type of surface. Courts should be sloped side to side so water can drain away from playing surface.
Build a Shuffleboard Court
Although there has been a significant decline in shuffleboard construction the sport remains popular among all ages. In many cases the courts may need to be reconstructed just since over time with typical erosion, and earth settling around them they become unplayable to any standard. Using the same area of play we can reconstruct the courts to precisely what you would like to have done.
In almost all cases shuffleboard courts are construction out of concrete and the process begins with forming up the courts according to plans, then pouring and finishing the surface by our trained concrete technicians. Once courts are poured the concrete must cure out for a minimum of 30 days. Once cured our highly skilled applicators will apply the painted surface and finish by installing all the lines, numbers, and letters.
Our unique acrylic painted surface incorporates very tiny glass beads into the paint and once applied in several applications it leaves you with a surface that any tournament master would approve of.
The cost of a court varies greatly depending on size, location, and access to the property. Call our office today for a free consultation and estimate.
