There are many styles of tables to choose from as well as wood and stain options. We can also add a family or company logo to the board, which is great for brand awareness for schools, businesses and institutions.

Shuffleboard Table Clearance

Shuffleboard tables need at least 2.5 to 3 feet of clearance on each end of the table. This is to allow players to stand behind the table and take their shots comfortably. The amount of clearance you need may vary depending on the size of the table and the number of players.

Here is a table that shows the minimum length needed for shuffleboard tables:

For example, if you have a 12-foot shuffleboard table, you will need a room that is at least 15 long. Shuffleboard tables can be placed against a wall or can float within a room.

Here are some other things to keep in mind when planning the placement of your shuffleboard table:

  • Avoid placing the table near windows or doors, as the sunlight can discolor the game.
  • Consider the traffic flow in the room and make sure the table/tables are not in the way.

 By following these tips, you can ensure that your shuffleboard table is properly placed and that you have enough space to play comfortably.
