The facilities surrounding the Kentlands Clubhouse extend beyond the obvious swimming pools, tennis courts and basketball court. They also include a shuffleboard court and a set of horseshoe pits that can provide a lot of fun for people who prefer their sports at a more stately pace, so to speak.
It appears, however, that not many of our friends and neighbors know that either or both of these facilities are there, because both have fallen into disuse. While kids sometimes play in the sand that fills the horseshoe pits, nobody has borrowed the horseshoes or shuffleboard gear in a long time. It's been so long since anyone played shuffleboard that the shuffleboard court now holds some picnic tables.
This disuse is not because the Kentlands Citizens Assembly (KCA) can't provide the needed equipment. The horseshoes and shuffleboard gear are available in the Clubhouse.
As part of our preparation for the summer season, the KCA will refurbish this little used facility over the next few weeks. We'll move the two picnic tables a bit so that the shuffleboard facility will be usable, power wash it, and repaint the lines. The horseshoe pits, just barely visible in the background on the left of the photo are fine but we'll make sure they're in good shape and ready for folks to come out to play.
Come out and join the shuffleboard and horseshoe fun! Let's make good use of this fun little piece of the Kentlands Clubhouse's recreational facilities.
