State Tournament Requirements

Please note:

Due to the extremely low participation in amateur tournaments, the Board of the Florida Shuffleboard Association has instituted a temporary preregistration requirement for all statewide amateur tournaments. If less than 20 players in register in both divisions of an amateur singles event, and there are at least 12 players total, both divisions will be combined. (March 2022). If there are less than 12 players in amateur singles or less than 10 teams registered for an amateur doubles event by the posted cutoff time, the Registrar will cancel the tournament. This procedure is to take immediate effect and continue until cancelled by the board. (10/27/2021)
Where Open and Amateur tournaments are held at the same time and location, the Amateur tournament will be held regardless of number of entries. (10/15/2022)

A16B at Leesburg will open at 8:00 A.M. on Friday, January 27, and close at 4:00 P.M. on Sunday, January 29. Email registrations, including the names of both partners, to Confirmations will be sent via return email.
