Shuffleboard is a game that can be played at any stage of life. It transcends gender and strength and has become a beloved pastime at Lakeside. In 1928, Lakeside established the first organized shuffleboard facility in Ohio and founded the Lakeside Shuffleboard Club. Over the years, a strong emphasis has been placed on the quality of the courts and the sportsmanship of the players.


Membership

The Lakeside Shuffleboard Club has more than 100 members. The club offers membership for the entire summer for $10. Membership allows participation in Ohio State Shuffleboard Association (OSSA) sanctioned tournaments. Being a member of the Lakeside Shuffleboard Club is the best value.
