I received the Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table from MD Sports to help facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
I know what it’s like to live in cramped quarters. Until we added on recently, our home was on the smaller side. (Only 2 official bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for the 7 of us! Thankfully, our living room, dining room, and kitchen were all good sizes.) But as the kids have grown, I’ve realized that it’s important to have activities for them to do at home. I want our home to be ‘the fun house’. I’d prefer the neighbors all hang out here so I can keep an eye on things, provide snacks and meals, and just enjoy my kids. So recently, we started looking into game tables.
The Game Table You Need If You Have Limited Space
My husband’s first thoughts were a pool table. However, pool tables take up A LOT of space. Space that I just wasn’t committed to giving up just yet. So we kept brainstorming. Then, we remembered playing on a shuffle board table at the local mall last year. The entire family had a great time with it. So the decision was made. Shuffleboard it is!
Top 6 Reasons Why We Chose The Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table For Our Game Room
- Small Footprint: The table is long but skinny at 24″ wide. So it doesn’t take up a ton of floor space.
- Fun: Shuffleboard is fun for all ages. Our youngest was about 3 the first time she played. As for the other end of the spectrum, there’s no outgrowing the joys of shuffleboard. Since it’s not very labor intensive it’s truly a game for anyone!
- Gorgeous Design: The Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table is beautiful and fits any decor design. It’s a high end piece that compliments any room.
- Sturdy Construction: The design features a reliable faux concrete block leg construction which means you won’t have to worry about bumping or tipping this table.
- High Quality: This 9 foot birch wood veneer table looks, feels, and performs like the high-end piece of furniture that it is.
- Includes Everything You Need To Play: Our table was delivered at 8:30am and we were able to set up and start playing within an hour of delivery! The box contained everything we needed to get started: the table, 8 pucks, shuffleboard powder, and two integrated abacuses to keep track of scores.
Every Game Room Needs The Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table
With the addition we put on our home recently, we actually created a dedicated game room. We currently have 2 teens and three more kids in the trenches. So it seems as if we’re always hosting friends, holidays, birthday parties, and gatherings. This new space will now allow us to entertain more easily as we now have an air hockey table, large connect four, table and stools for playing board games and cards on, and now, this really awesome Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table.
After this, the next item on our list is a full size ping pong table! But Medal Sports has such an awesome variety of game room tables, games, and options that I think we’ll be adding a few more pieces to our room in the future!
Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table Review
Our Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table arrived on a large truck in two, very heavy, boxes. We used a skid loader to get get the boxes on our front porch but then my husband, 4 of the kids, and I managed to carry them in together. (The one box is HEAVY so I recommend a couple strong men or many hands like we had.)
Once inside, we opened the boxes and took off all the packaging. I want to note that the pieces were all packaged VERY well. Lots of protection so even though one of the boxes was a little damaged on the outside, everything inside appeared perfect.
The assembly includes attaching the legs to the table, securing the support beam, and also the abacuses. In all, the assembly process took less than an hour. The biggest time involved is because the table is heavy and takes some muscle to lift and move. But it wasn’t difficult at all.
While there are levers included for leveling too, our table was perfectly level upon assembly completion.
Time To Play!
We have been spending a ton of time playing Shuffleboard since the arrival of this awesome table.

The high quality and timeless style of the Barrington Urban Collection Shuffleboard Table means that it’s a piece that everyone admires and can appreciate. So if you’re on the hunt for a way to entertain the kids without a screen, this Shuffleboard game table is a great choice!
