Shuffleboard: A Hip Hobby

A classic game makes a comeback among players of all ages, from Florida to Germany

Shuffleboard first surfaced in the United States in 1913 and peaked in popularity around the '60s, especially with the cruise set. But its fortunes fell after that, and for many years the game was tinged with the trend-killing description "senior activity."

But today, shuffleboard is seeing a major resurgence at the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Shuffleboard Club, the world's largest. And it is young people who are leading the charge.

My Generation's Diane Roberts shuffles off to St. Petersburg, where something old is definitely new again.
