SAN BENITO, Texas – A local resort was chosen to host the Shuffleboard World Championship Playoffs in 2021.
The International Shuffleboard Association chose Fun-n-Sun Resort in San Benito to be home for the playoffs. The resort has 16 indoor shuffleboard courts, the only indoor courts in the Rio Grande Valley. Organizers of the event wanted to put the Valley on the world stage.
Evan & Ann Engell, International Shuffleboard Association, “We had to do an initial proposal package for the approval of the International Shuffleboard Association. In October in Vienna, we made our presentation to the board, it was unanimously approved that we won the bid for it, now the work begins.”
In past years, the playoffs have been hosted in Austria, Canada and Brazil. This is the first time they will be hosted in the Rio Grande Valley.
