Introducing The Crokinole Canada Board
The Story Behind The Crokinole Canada Board Series
Ted Fuller of Crokinole Canada decided to venture out and improve various features on tournament size Crokinole boards. That was the simple premise behind the development of the highly-anticipated Crokinole Canada board.
The board itself is a result of much customer feedback. Questions coming from customers perusing Crokinole Canada’s showroom at 5 Industrial Road and online were something like this: “Where are the numbers on these boards?” and “Can I get an image printed on this board?” and “Is there checkers on the back of this board?” It made Ted stop and think that it was time to introduce a new board in the crokinole board arena. With that in mind, he contacted his brother-in-law and his brother-in-law’s business partner to come up with something amazing - something that would bring Crokinole back as a 21st Century Game.
To do so, Ted brought 2 tournament level boards meeting NCA specifications to the craftsmen in order to achieve tournament size specifications and add some winning crokinole board traits which were missing from existing tournament size boards.
This is the first time that a tournament board integrates crisp, smaller scoring numbers for games up to 100. Many traditional crokinole players are comfortable playing with that point system as they grew up doing so (I know I grew up using the 5, 10, 15, 20 point system).
The craftsmen setup a multi-step finishing / buffing process to ensure each board is smooth! By making a smooth playing surface and adding the option of custom high resolution UV photographic prints across the entire board - Crokinole Canada has made the game not only wonderful to play on but truly an art piece to display and enjoy on your wall. Which is why we've included a free wall mounting bracket!
And that my friends is the story behind The Crokinole Canada Board. We have had tons of fun coming up with this board and trust that it will afford you many hours of sweet memories and enjoyment.
Enjoy playing on this super fun, smooth surfaced tournament size Crokinole Board / work of ART!
