Hand-Crafted by Players, for Players
Family-owned & operated just down the road from where the game of Crokinole was born,
Tracey Crokinole Boards are designed and built for one purpose:
To help you find pure enjoyment in the greatest game on earth.
What Makes Tracey Boards Different?
Tracey Boards are hand-crafted by world-class Canadian Crokinole players who love helping others find joy and excitement in the game.
Starting with premium, long-lasting materials, every board is hand-built to meet the standards of the National Crokinole Association. Every cut, sand, finish, and line goes under strict inspection before it leaves our floor. If it’s not a board the best players in the world would choose to play on, it doesn’t get shipped. That has always been our policy, and it always will be.
From the Canadian Maple playing surface to the crisp, silk-screened lines, we’re passionate about building you a beautiful board you’ll be proud to pass on to your kids and grandkids. Yes, it will be built to last that long. But even more so, your Crokinole board will create a fun, fast-paced experience that will provide laughs and memories for years to come.

Trained by "The Wood Wizard"
For 30 years Willard “The Wood Wizard” Martin made what many consider to be some of the best Crokinole boards in the world. Downstairs in his basement shop is where Willard trained Jeremy — our owner & founder — on how to build world-class Crokinole boards. And in 2018, the torch of the Willard Pro Board was passed on to become the Tracey Tour Board.
Every board we make and ship has Willard’s fingerprints on it. So when it’s your turn, remember you’re a part of the great legacy that Willard passed down to us.
“The Tracey Tour Board is every bit as good, if not better than the Willard Pro"
About the Traceys
The Tracey’s love for Crokinole can be traced back to when Jeremy was introduced to the game at just 19 months old by his Grampie Reid. Today, you can find the Traceys in or around the shop where all the Tracey Crokinole Boards are made. Whether they’re helping to finish boards or competing at The World Crokinole Championship, their love and respect for the game is second to none.
Jeremy finished the 2017/2018 season ranked 6th in the National Crokinole Association (NCA) standings. He also placed second in doubles at the World Crokinole Championship on June 2, 2018.

He has been playing crokinole for as long as he can remember. His Grandfather on his mother’s side, ‘Grampie Reid‘ introduced him to the game. He immediately fell in love with the competition and fun.
Jeremy’s style of play can be described as ‘enthusiastic or optimistic.‘ He loves to go for the ‘Big Shot‘. It is his love of playing on the highest quality boards that led him into handcrafting boards and launching ‘The Tracey Board’ line.
He is extremely grateful for the mentoring from one of the absolute best crokinole board builders in the world. Jeremy takes pride in creating the best looking and playing board that you can find. His commitment to excellence stems from a high level of respect for his customers as well as for his board building mentor.
Elaine is the ultimate ‘Momma Bear’ of the Tracey family keeping the rest of the family in line. Although she seldom plays crokinole herself, she has an extremely high standard for excellence in craftsmanship and helps Jeremy with the finer points of crokinole board building.
Reid is the eldest of three sons and finished the 2017/18 season 17th in the NCA standing. His style of play can be described as ‘relaxed‘. Reid was part of the Waterloo club team that won the Schneider Haus Annual County Classic in April 2018. Most recently Reid placed 12th in the competitive division at the World Crokinole Championship.
Garret is the middle child and has so many other passions in life such as drama, juggling and parkour that he chooses not to compete in crokinole tournaments (we love him anyway). He does occasionally grab a seat at the ‘crok’ table with us and shoot a few games and is a pretty sharp shooter especially on open 20’s.
Nolan is the youngest of the clan and is also the youngest player in history to make it to the semi finals in NCA sanctioned tournament. He finished the 2017/18 season in 13th place in the NCA standing. His style of play can be described as ‘creative‘. Nolan is also learning the art of board building and wants to become more and more involved with the business.
