Skee-Ball Anyone?

A classic arcade game, Skee-Ball is over 100 years old!

While the game was invented across the river in Philadelphia in 1909 by J. Dickinson Este, Atlantic City, NJ can proudly claim the very first skee-ball tournament held in 1932.

Although not as popular as other sports, skee-ball is played competitively by leagues like SkeeNation and Brewskee-Ball.

With NJ being a state that borders on the Eastern coastline, there are obviously many boardwalks and, therefore, many arcades. Skee-ball can easily be found from Manasquan down to Cape May.
