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:
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 crokinole 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.
When the greatest Crokinole players gather every June in Tavistock, Ontario, we’re honored that players will use and trust our boards to determine a champion. Click here to learn more about the World Crokinole Championship.
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"
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.

Bringing a creative touch from his theatre days in high school, Garret keeps busy brainstorming, designing, and filming new content to give to the Crokinole community. While he currently doesn’t have any outstanding Crokinole claims to his name, Garret is looking to become more competitive over the 23-24 NCA season – look out!

Nolan was the first of the three Tracey brothers to start helping out at the shop. He has since switched over to more administrative tasks such as handling packaging, shipping and if you’ve ever emailed us, you’ve probably chatted with him. Nolan’s had great success in competitive Crokinole ever since he was 15, being the youngest ever to place in the top 4 at an NCA tournament. He also placed second alongside Reid in the doubles division at the World Crokinole Championship, and regularly lands himself in the A pool at Crokinole tournaments.
