Rules to play Shuffleboard
An full outdoor shuffleboard court is a long rectangle with scoring areas at either end. The full length of the court is 52 feet and the following areas are drawn from either end. A line is drawn across the court, six and a half feet from the end. This is the baseline and the area from the end to the baseline is called the shooting area. From this line to the next line, one and a half feet beyond, is the 10 Off area. The edges of the 10 off area are reduced slightly by two slanting lines at the same angle as the scoring triangle described next. The 10 off area is also split into left and right sides by a small thin triangle centrally placed. The second line forms the base of an isosceles triangle, the scoring area, the point of which is a further nine feet down the court. The triangle is divided into five areas viz: a line is drawn 3 feet from the tip and the small triangle it delineates is marked 10; the remaining area of the scoring triangle is bisected both horizontally and vertically to form four areas. The two areas next to the 10 area are marked 8 and the two areas next to the 10 off area are marked 7. A further 3 feet from the tip of the scoring triangle is yet another line across the court known as the dead line disks must cross the line in order to be counted as in play.
