There’s something about the clink of discs on a shuffleboard court, a sound that’s resonated through the ages. At Larks, we’re reigniting this classic pastime, blending history with modern enjoyment. Here’s a glimpse into the world of shuffleboard and why it’s the featured attraction at all Larks locations.

Shuffleboard, a game with a rich history dating back to 15th-century England, was originally known as “shove-groat,” where players slid a “groat” (a large coin) across a table. Evolving through the centuries, it became a beloved game among both royals and commoners. Fast forward to the 20th century, shuffleboard sailed across the Atlantic, finding a home in American culture, especially in the sunny state of Florida.

Why Shuffleboard?

• Simple Yet Engaging: Shuffleboard is the epitome of easy-to-learn, hard-to-master. It requires just enough skill to be competitive, but not so much that it’s inaccessible to newcomers.

• Socialize With Ease: It’s the perfect game to play with a cocktail in hand, encouraging laughter, conversation, and a bit of friendly competition.

• Nostalgia with a Twist: At Larks, we’re all about reviving classic entertainment with a modern touch. Shuffleboard fits this bill perfectly, offering a nostalgic experience with a contemporary ambiance.

• Inclusive Fun: Regardless of age or physical ability, almost everyone can enjoy shuffleboard. It’s a game that truly brings people together.
