Every first and third Saturday of the month, Orlandoans come together at the Beardall Senior Center for a mean game of shuffleboard hosted by The Orlando Shuffle, Orlando’s shuffleboard club. Founder Rick Kilby said he discovered his love of shuffleboard after a visit to St. Petersburg where shuffleboard is a big part of the community.
“It’s a lot like curling or croquet,” Kilby said. “You may be a natural shuffleboard player if you’re a good bowler or have a good short game of golf.”
Not sure you have what it takes to put your biscuit in the kitchen, i.e., your disk in the 10-point scoring area? Have no fear. Check out our video to learn pro-tips from the shuffleboard legend himself, Kilby.
