We have a client looking for a nice full size snooker table in oak
looking for one in the £500 price range so he can spend money on a re-cloth and pockets adjustment or re-rubber
table has to play like a modern table and not one that is hard to pot balls on or bounce out from middle pocket plates
A standard Riley aristocrat or Karnehm and hillman will suffice , POLISH must be in excellent order no rough tables .
not too fussed if squared or turned legs the tables playing experience is more important , of course build quality is a must have and condition of wood work .
some thing like the following is what I am looking for , may consider a Mahogany table .
Aristocrat by Riley
oak square leg a contemporary look ?
Riley square leg , but not an old one like this as pockets openings are a problem
if you have anything like this and in need of removal i have a client waiting for one .
Geoff or Carol Large .
We have a client based in Cambourne Cornwall looking to buy a full size snooker table
because of the logistics of this , a low cost nice condition table is required .
it may be that you have moved into a new home and wish to make the snooker room into a room you can use .
or selling a property and the new buyers of your house have made it a condition that the table is removed before they exchange contracts .
Therefore price has to be very reasonable taking into condition that tables are hard to sell , and too many for sale from closed down clubs have saturated the market
it really is a buyers market .
hence why GCL billiards do not get involved with buying and selling tables . we prefer to just advertise private sales on our much visited for sale section and wanted section ,
I could fill a warehouse with free to collect or low price tables and only sell one or two a year .
**** We are looking for Ground floor located tables only**** .
We are looking for something like this Karnehm and Hillamn , as long as rubber has good bounce the cloth condition is not going to be an issue but woodwork has to be good .
even a square leg version of a Karnehm and Hillman will do .
Or basic Riley Arsitocrat with standard cushions
Of course we will also take into consideration any make of table , but build quality and condition is going to be the decisive factor when we select one for this client
it is a long way to go to fit a table from Nottingham and we do not wish to disappoint the client by fitting an inferior table and I am afraid a lot of inferior tables where manufactured in the 1980’s
I will not say what a previous client paid for this table , but it was not a lot of money
and it was sold for that because very little interest in people wishing to buy and pay to have it dismantled and transported and set back up .
If you have a table for sale that fits any of our requirements then please get in touch with ~Geoff on email .. firstname.lastname@example.org

We have a client who is converting a room for a full size snooker table
this room will be ready for a table around February 2019
below we have two Aristocrat tables that have been advertised and sold on GCL Billiards web site by private sellers .
Our client would like one in pristine wood work condition , rubber cloth and nets and leathers are not too important
but we are looking for the best available out there that is being privately sold and in home use only .
this one was sold and installed in France last year .
this one was sold and installed in Lougborough two years ago .
both in very good order woodwork wise and only had private use .
ideally we are looking for a Made in UK model .
slates have to be in good order too and level and not dished .
if you have a Riley Aristocrat or a good Karnehm and Hillman Buckingham model table in unmarked polish condition then please contact Geoff at GCL billiards .
we have a cash buyer lined up for the right table .
Please be realistic with your expectations of price , it is a buyer market .
things like cost of dismantle and deliver and set up plus any cloth or rubber reconditioning will have to be taken into account on price given for a basic Aristocrat table .
we can discuss values by sending a photo to Geoff or Carol Large at GCL billiards email address
the only other full size snooker table our client may be interested in is a Karnehm and Hillman Buckingham table like this one
*** please note
Dealers need not contact , we are looking for a Private seller for our client
I have had an inquiry for a BCE Westbury full size steel cushioned table at a reasonable price .
if anyone has one for sale , then please contact me so I can pass on the information to my Client .
Genuine BCE westbury only please .
Condition of woodwork is important , but things like rubber cloth nets and leathers could be replaced , the polish however and condition of woodwork should be good .
also slates have to be in good order and not dished or broken and all bolts inserts in slate present and good to go .
also frieze bolts and slot plates present and correct and all pocket plate bolts .
These BCE westbury tables where very popular in the 1980’s and 90’s ,
they where made in their thousands so someone should have one for sale ,
But condition and location is everything .
There are some copies around but my client is after a genuine one .
