2nd Norwich Shuffleboard Open

We were pleased to be joined once again by visitors from America, Canada and Norway for a another very successful tournament in St Andrews Hall Norwich. In the first phase players from over the pond proved much too strong for the local contingent , but they were gracious in victory and extremely encouraging and helpful.  The final two days featured a 3-way match in which the Norwegian men and the North American Ladies came out on top.

The week  also offered the opportunity for some very sociable events in the evening and the promise of future meetings to look forward to.

 

World Shuffleboard Championships

The 36th ISA World Shuffleboard Championship took place in Rio de Janeiro during the week of the 23rd July. It was a singles event this time and the first occasion in which the championships have been played in South America. It proved a great success and Michael Hirsch (USA) and Ellen Hansson (Norway) were crowned champions and winners of the Golden Cue.
