Daytime The St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club

Posted: Updated:
Seniors in their 80's and youths of the 21st century gather for the entertainment and camaraderie that is part and parcel of a game that's woven into the fabric of St. Petersburg. Games from friendly to tournament level take place at this historical and cultural landmark. Those looking to brush up on their shuffleboard skills or try the game for the first time can join in the fun every Friday from 7 to 11 p.m., weather permitting. The free outdoor diversion includes use of equipment, access to volunteers who can guide newcomers on the basics and entertainment provided by members who create play lists on their iPods.

Built in the 1920's and featured in the movie Cocoon, the Mirror Lake Shuffleboard Club's complex houses 32 lighted courts (65 total) and an amazing old grandstand - a reminder of how popular a spectator sport shuffleboard was in its heyday.
