The Haddon Heights Shuffleboard League (HHSBL) was conceived in 1985 by a group of Little League coaches who were looking for a place to hide out from their families on Sunday nights.  The league previously resided in the Boy Scout Cabin at Hoff’s Park (1985-2008); the former American Water Garage (2009); and the Haddon Heights VFW (2010-2014).  The Haddon Heights Sons of Italy Hall has been the home of the league since 2015.

The team of Frank Ferrese and Craig Ferrese currently holds the record for most championships in league history with 6.  Pete Gemmell has the distinction of winning 7 titles individually, 5 with Bob Skierski and an additional 2 with George Ewe.  There have been 5 repeat team champions in league history, but none has ever captured a third consecutive title.

The Pearl Harbor Tournament has been held annually since 1992.  This is a singles tournament that has been held under various formats.  Single elimination, double elimination and pool play have all been used.  The tournament is a grind, both physically and mentally and rewards a most deserving champion each year.  The dreaded Budweiser Flu has derailed many a march to the championship.  Frank Ferrese leads the way with 7 titles.  John Goff (1997-1999) and Frank Ferrese (2005-2007) are the only players to win 3 consecutive titles in this event.
