For Sale 9ft Riley Snooker table, another Genuine 3/4 size

Due to people now logging into the website for our FREE FOR SALE blog, we are having many enquiries to advertise snooker tables for sale.

So we now have two 9ft tables on the web site for sale by private sellers, this newly listed 9ft snooker table is based near Burnley.

The photos tell the story, a very nice condition circa 1910/1920s Riley Billiard snooker table.  I have not seen the table for a close inspection but from the photos it looks in very good condition and is in a dry warm room.  It has had a re-rubber some time ago by Willie Smith of Leeds, the Smith badge looks around 1950/60s, but it may have been rerubbered again after that.  There is a genuine original Riley cushion badge that looks to be made out of Ivory.  The seller is looking for offers around £1700.

Due to other firms getting in touch with our clients who are selling tables on this Blog (and trying to get the work for transporting and set up) I am now taking all enquiries for all of the for sale Snooker & Pool tables advertised on GCL Billiards blog.  I will then pass on any genuine details to the seller and buyer, who I hope will use GCL Billiards qualified billiards fitting team to move the table.  A man and a van and his mate is not the way to move these tables, they require expert workmanship in both the dismantling and loading, plus the important set up and leveling of the table making sure the cloth is fitted correctly and all slate joints are level and all bolts torqued up to the correct tension.  Only a time served Billiards Fitter can do this to a high standard .

Rilet Aristocrat NOW SOLD £2000

NOW SOLD !

A 1987 Riley installed table, this table was brand new when installed, so has only had one careful home owner, never been used in a club and therefore is as mint as you will find one.  The last one that came along in this condition sold straight away.

PLEASE NOTE THIS TABLE HAS STANDARD CUSHIONS AND NOT STEEL BLOCK TYPE.
IT HAS HARD WOOD CUSHIONS WHICH ARE VERY GOOD FOR BOUNCE AND ALMOST AS GOOD AS STEEL BLOCK REBOUND

The table is not as dark as this photo, look at the next photo for a true colour and wood grain.

The table has all the accessories required to play the game and to maintain the cloth in perfect condition.  The iron will be sold with the table if the seller receives the asking price which will be negotiated with the seller.  GCL BILLIARDS is only passing information on about the table, we would however like to be involved with the dismantling and setting up of the table as our reward for pairing the seller and the buyer together.

GCL Billiards has not inspected the table at first hand, but know of the family that the table is coming from and one of the brothers is a well known figure in snooker circles in the Nottingham area and beyond.

If the buyer chooses, a time served billiards fitter could be sent out to check over the table to be double sure it is 100%.  Things like cushion bounce, slate trueness and condition of polish etc can all be scrutinised by a profesional eye (allthough the photos confirm the condition).  There will be a cost to this service though to cover travel and time.

I do know that when the table was purchased new it cost over £4500.  The seller is looking for £2000 or offers in that region.  This does not include the dismantle and set up or any transportation costs, as previously stated they are willing to listen to sensible offers.

I am linking the blog for this advert to www.thesnookerforum.com in the tables section as this will help widen the search for a buyer for the table.

GCL Billiards do not charge a commission for the service of advertising client’s tables, all we ask is that you would consider us for the work of removal, delivery and set up of the table.  We are fully professional and have over 37 years personal experience in the art of billiards fitting.with many personal testimonials.

The Table is NOW SOLD , after putting the table up for sale in MAY 2013 , we had no enquiries then all of a sudden within the same week in October 2013  we have two people after it .
Now it shows that these adverts do get noticed , and we still have a client who requires one in the same condition .
