So What is the Knuckler
Program All About?
While the Frederick County
Knucklers, a Middletown Rec Council
program, is based out of Middletown, Maryland where our marble shooting
rings are located, the program reaches out to boys and girls ages 7 to
14 throughout Frederick County including Frederick City. During the
year, we reach out to over 600 kids with clinics held at scouting,
educational and other activities to introduce the fun of both playing
and collecting marbles. At those clinics, we show kids how to play the
game of Ringer on portable marble rings and then send them home with a
free bag of marbles along with an invitation to pursue the sport of
competitive marbles as a member of the Frederick County Knucklers. As a
member of the Knucklers, the kids learn the art of shooting a marble
and then proving their skill in several tournaments throughout the
spring and early summer months with the top players competing in a four
day national competition on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey. All
this, from the free bag of marbles to the local tournaments and the
trip to Wildwood are provided at no cost to the children or their
Let us know if you would
like for us to present a
demonstration on how to play competitive marbles for your group. Please
know that there is no cost to you for demos or for any other activities
within the Middletown Recreation Council Marbles Program.
