PRICING INFO

The price of a full size snooker table promoted on the Internet can vary between a few hundred and a several thousand pounds. Because a full size table can literally last forever (snooker table slates will never degrade and protected hardwoods will never lose their structure) there is an ever growing national stock. The price variations reflect the difference between the salvage value of unwanted tables, and the current retail price of a bespoke, modern-tournament table, built to your own design and style preferences.

ROOM SIZES

For serious snooker you need to allow at least a full size cue length (57-58 inches) as a perimeter to surround the play surface of the snooker table. If you prefer to play with a shorter cue, perhaps with a smaller table, then the room size can be smaller. The chart below offers sample dimensions as a preliminary guide. Always check with us on precise room sizing and layout before placing an order

  58" cue 52" cue 48" cue
12ft table 22'x16' *** ***
10ft table 20'x15' *** ***
9ft table 19'x14' *** ***
  8ft table 18'x14' 17'x13' 16'x12'

DELIVERY & INSTALLATION

Attention to every detail

Commissions for full size snooker tables are normally agreed by email and phone conversations and,where practical, visiting (by appointment) our workshop in Hull. Every aspect of the commission will ensure that (a) we build the exact full size snooker table you want, and equally important (b) we plan for all contingencies in the delivery and installation sequence.

Measurements, Lighting and Dining?

Dimensions of your room, and your desired optimum play experience, are the prime critical factors. Will the positioning of your full size snooker table require a surrounding convivial space? Which is the preferred method of table lighting, and are the electrics in situ? Is there sufficient flooring strength to sustain a full size snooker table? What is the preferred fixed playing height if the full size snooker table is also to double as a dining or conference table?

Site survey?

A full size table has long beams and incorporates extremely heavy 5-piece slates. If there is no adjacent access, or if the snooker room is not on the ground floor, or the room is peculiar, we may need to supervise a pre-install survey of the location.

Because of these variable issues, not least the travelling distance from Hull, we apply a delivery and installation cost-schedule to all customer commissions for full size snooker tables.
