The Venetian shuffleboard table gets its name from the traditional, elegant style of furniture that originated in Venice. Such furniture is easily to recognise, with subtle, swooping curves and beautiful accents - and the Venetian is no different.
But it isn't made just for looking at. Inside the cradle is a truly modern playfield, which uses all of Champion's 30-year experience in shuffleboard manufacture to create a world-class play experience.
The Venetian's silhouette is quite beautiful, with a solid maple cradle supported by curved, cross-braced legs. Each is produced in Champion's factory in the USA by skilled craftsmen, making the quality control on these tables the best in the business.
The timbers used in construction are hand-picked for quality before being prepared, assembled and finished. Each Champion table undergoes a rigorous inspection process before dispatch, to ensure your total peace of mind.
The playfield is where the magic really happens. The very finest cuts of maple are joined, honed and shaped, before being precisely flattened and then treated with a coat of Champion's own polymer, which protects the playfield and helps it retain its low-friction qualities.
On the playfield you'll see the patented Handicap Scoring system, which is unique to Champion. This is designed to help novice players compete with more experienced players, by handicapping the experts and levelling the field.
The Venetian comes as standard in one of Champion's house finishes; Millcreek on Maple. This dark woodstain complements the classic styling and matches the curves and details in the cabinet itself.
You can also order your table in another finish. Take your pick from the swatch below, and select it in the dropdown menu. Whatever you choose, you can be sure it'll be finished to the same high standards as the rest of the range.
Included in the price are accessories. You get two sets of four pucks, as well as shuffleboard powder, silicon spray and a wipe to keep your playfield really pristine.
The delivery team will assemble your table completely, getting it perfectly level and ready to play. They'll also show you how to use the climatic adjusters and how to take good care of your table.
Shuffleboard is a unique game, sharing elements of curling, bowling and petanque. Players slide their pucks up a long, near-frictionless playfield with meticulous precision, scoring points for accuracy.
Since the 1940s it has become very popular in the USA, and more recently it's being played in the UK in bars, venues and homes.
In shuffleboard, you push your puck firmly up the table so that it slides along the play surface. At the far end is the scoring zone. The closer your puck gets to the end, the higher your score - but be careful not to push it off the table entirely.
Each player or team starts with four pucks. Skilled players will aim for the opponent's pucks, bouncing them off the table or using them as a brake. It's a cool-headed, tactical and exciting game, packed with suspense. Click the graphic on the left to expand and read more.
