OTTAWA —Ottawa has three shuffleboard courts that opened at Water Works Park
in 1996. The original courts included benches made of recycled plastic
on each end, with scoreboards on the north side.
In 2009 the
village of Ottawa had the courts sanded down and repainted to improve
the surface. A scout added covers for shade on each end of the court to
earn his Eagle Scout Award.
This year there were three teams who
played on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The games usually start the
first of June and finish in August. The games are played from 8:30 a.m.
to 10:30 a.m.
The participants are hoping for more teams next year.
