SOUTHERN DISTRICT 

Welcome to the Southern District Shuffleboard Association. We are excited to have you join us for some fun playing the game of shuffleboard.
The Southern District was formed in 1989, becoming the 7th district to join the FSA (Florida Shuffleboard Association.  The first ever Southern District tournament was held at Bonita Terra (previously known as Citrus Park) in Bonita Springs on November 9 1989.
We presently have 30 affiliated clubs who belong to our association. Our district tournaments are held every Thursday at 8:am. The season runs October through March. It’s only $6.00 to enter with cash prizes for the winners. State tournaments are played every Monday throughout the State of Florida, including some here in our district.
Come and join in the fun, our Members are here to help you settle in and make the most of your membership. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Editor’s opinion: The ‘Bucks’ are no strangers to the Southern District. Ray has served on the Board for many years, he is a Past President and presently holds the position of State Delegate. Joan served as the secretary and is now one of our Tournament Directors. They are dedicated members, always willing to offer a helping hand. Thankyou for all the motivation and encouragement you’ve given throughout the years.  


Two Newbie tournaments are held each season, to introduce and encourage new players to come out and give shuffleboard a try. Ray Buck and his wife Joan along with many volunteers organize the one day tournaments for players who have not competed in tournament play before.  Ray uses the singles mingles format for these tournaments which is appealing to the new players. The courts are prepared by the hard working men and women who are there to encourage the newbie’s to have fun. Free coffee and donuts is supplied. Between 30-40 men and women show up in hopes of being the top winner. The first place prize of a new cue is donated by Allen Shuffleboard, seven additional cash prizes are awarded. Congratulations to all the winners. Its always a great day for shuffleboard. Look for upcoming events on our Bulletin Board.

Free Shuffleboard Lessons are offered at certain times of the season. You don’t equipment or reservations to attend these lessons, just show up on any given Saturday.

Watch for upcoming times and dates posted on this website.
