Beat your friends at pool, bowling or shuffleboard.

Try the increasingly popular game of Shuffleboard

Shuffleboard dates back to the 16th Century but a pub version of the game has been developed more recently that is incredibly popular. Shuffleboard has very simple rules and can be played by all ages. Like tennis, you can either play singles or doubles. The board is long by narrow and covered in silicon beads that reduce the friction between the puck and playing surface. The aim is for your puck to rest as close to the edge as possible but you can also try to knock your opponent's puck off the playing surface. You can play Shuffleboard at both Pitchers and O’Learys.
