Choose your model ( #1 to 6 ) and your size according to your space.

Determine the space available, the base on wich the plastic court will be lay down and your budget.

On soft surfaces like wood, carpet, or linoleum, you can choose any surface. But on abrasive surfaces like cement, pavers, asphalt, etc. We recommend #1 or #2  in any one of the 4 scoring zones ( 6’x40′, 5’x32′, 4’x27′, 3’x20′) 

Planet Shuffleboard Four scoring zones width

1-The scoring zone:

The scoring zone is where triangles are painted. In white on dark courts and in black on light court. This surface, usually in dark green, is offered in an official version of ( 6’x40′ ). In version reduced to 4/5 of the official ( 5’x32′ ). In version reduced to 2/3 of the official    ( 4’x27′ ) and finally in a version  reduced to half  of  the official ( 3’x20′ ).

Note that on the ( 6’x40′ ) and ( 5’x32′ ) versions, you play with 6 inches diameter discs when with the  ( 4’x27′ ) and ( 3’x20′ ) versions, you  play  with  4 inches diameter discs

To slow down the fading of the court, sometimes, white is used when the court is always exposed to Sun’s UVs. 

Here on the picture, white and dark green are used to show you the differences between each scoring areas. See All courts to better understand.

2-The surface to launch:

This surface is optional and usually in Terra Cotta ( Red Brick ).

It consists of taking the width of your choice at point 1 and making 2 identical squares of 6’x6′ or 5’x5′ or 4’x4′ or 3’x3′ that you place at each end of your scoring zone.

It is more confortable for the players because they play at the same level than the court itself.

The 2 shooting sections in Terra Cotta give to the court a better finish look.

On the picture beside, the advantage of a treated wood base is that if the frost move the platform in the winter, you level it in the spring and you’re done. Ideally on techno-piles.

3-The surface on each side:

  • Courts with a red surface on each side have a stopper that prevent discs from going out of the court.                                                                       
  •  The stopper prevents players from leaving the court to get their discs outside of the platform.  Security is always a good think to consider.
  • The stopper ensures a perfect sliding quality because your discs do not scratch on plastic.
  • This surface is 2′ wide for court#1 and 1′ wide for court#2
  • With 2′ there is less risk that discs bounce in the point area. These 2 models are required on abrasive base like cement, paver and asphalt.
