A little History on Lee County Shuffleboard Club
by Steve Biaggi
Lee County Shuffleboard Club was originally Fort Myers Shuffleboard Club, located on Edwards Drive in downtown Fort Myers. There were 26 courts that were built sometime during the Great Depression by the W.P.A. The Lee County courts were built in 1999,under the direction of Commissioner Andy Coy. There was a ribbon cutting ceremony opening the courts in October 1999. The Fort Myers Shuffleboard Club, in gratitude for these 24 beautiful courts, voted to rename the club the Lee County Shuffleboard Club. The club was found to be a great pleasure, with smooth, fast courts and a totally different design than we had experienced in the past.
