The sixth European Shuffleboard Championship, which last took place in London in 2019, saw 38 contenders from Norway, Sweden, the UK, Denmark and Australia come together around four of our finest 22-foot Grand Champion SHUFL tables at BrewDog, Tower Hill. After a day of hard-fought matches, the awesome Yvla Thorsrud, 35 from Oslo, Norway, the defending 2018 champion, demonstrated nerves of steel and outplayed her fellow competitors to lift the trophy, banking a cool £2,500 in the process.
