Snooker and Pool table recovering , re-cloth , Strachan or Hainsworth cloths used . Nottingham, Derby ,Leicester, Lincoln, East Midlands .

We are a Snooker and billiards firm based in the East Midlands .
We like to keep local if we can but do travel if the work returns the effort of that Travelling .
Snooker table re-clothing to a high standard by Geoff Large who has over 42 years personal experience as a billiards fitter.

Please do not mistake the difference to a time served Billiards fitter to a pool table renovation engineer  .
A billiards fitter has to undergo years of learning and crafting his experience to deliver an acceptable grade of work .
Some Pool table engineers do not know how to re-cloth a full size table or install one properly .
so always look for a time served billiards fitter to work on your cue sports table .

For example just bolting a table frame together and slinging the slate son is not acceptable .
The frame had to undergo some time spent getting it level before the slates even go near the frame .

Only then should the slates be placed on the frame and positioned .

then the fine levelling can be made of the slates before the joints are set and the cloth can be fixed to the slate bed .

then you can fit the bed cloth , on this table it was the original bed cloth re-stretched back on
If your cloth is in good order it can be re-stretched back on .

And stretched tightly as a drum skin .
loose cloth you run the risk of tears , and a slow table .

Once back together it is time for Play .

we also re-cloth american pool using high grade speed cloths .

we re-cloth UK pool tables such as this Supreme winner

We even clean the ball rails and inside the table .

we can use Strachan 6811

Strachan super pro speed cloth

Hainsworth Match
just three of the cloths we could use , but we can also order special cloths such as Precision Hainsworth ,

We stock the odd Supreme  pool table for Rental contracts or for sale too
there is a 6 week waiting time from the factory so we always try and keep two in stock at anyone time .

We also relocate and transport tables for our clients .

for quality work and craftsmanship talk to Geoff at GCL billiards for your Cue sports needs .
when it comes to re-clothing or new re-rubber or table moving and pool table rentals .
You can be assured you are dealing with the right firm .

10ft Billiard Snooker table for sale Burroughs and watts £750 North London

We have a client who paid a considerable amount for this 10 foot by 5 foot table from sir William Bentley billiards a few years ago .
and now wishes to sell to make way for more room .
I have valued the table as come and get me price , this price does not include dismantle and relocating , but GCL billiards will quote to any buyer the cost for this .

I am informed the table is rose wood but from the photo’s I cannot make this out , it could be Mahogany , it used to be a full size table and was converted by sir William Bentley billiards to a 10ft size .
this means it will have the thicker slates of a full size .
Cues rests and balls and triangle are included , and they have some hard boards that can also go with it ….. BUT NO SCOREBOARD is included .
so you will need to source a scoreboard .

the table is priced to sell , and sold as viewed or seen from these photo’s
Cloth looks reasonable , but a re-cloth could be arranged at extra cost , again GCL billiards could quote you for this .
£750 is for the table as described above ,. all removal costs are down to the buyer .
any interested persons will be put in touch with the seller who is based near Barnet North London .
well out of the Chaos of central London Traffic and easy Ground floor collection .
Only Genuine buyers need apply , A 10ft is one of the rarest of sizes to find these days , hence why this cut down from full size came about .
a few firms did this to cater for people looking for a genuine 10ft .
so if you are in the market for a 10ft table , maybe you fancied a full size and found you did not have the space for a 12ft , but could fit a 10ft in ?
Then this is the one for you .
Or maybe you are looking at a 9ft table , but could go that extra foot long and extra 6 inches wide to fit a 10ft in
Ideal room size minimum is 20 foot by 15 foot .

please get in touch with Geoff  at

c.large@btinternet.com

or phone GCL billiards on 07753466064 for further details .

SNOOKER OR POOL TABLE BEEN IN A FLOOD RECENTLY ?

Has your precious table been affected by flooding in the last few  weeks of downpours ?
We have experience of dismantling and taking off site for store and refurb of snooker and pool tables that have been affected by water or smoke damage .

this clients rear Garden was flooding and we where sent for URGENTLY , to dismantle the Full size snooker table that would have been affected ,
But we were quick to remove it off the flooding site before serious damage could be done

As you can see it was almost there , right up to the base of the doorway to the Garden snooker room .
Pumps were brought in to get it to back down , and we dismantled the table and took it away , the water had just touched the first two legs and the carpet was sodden .
We were just in time .

The table before the flood

The table after the flood , set back up , cloth replaced due to damp conditions it shrunk being 100% wool it had to be replaced under Insurance claim .
We deal direct with Insurance company if required , giving quote to remove and deliver back to site and set back up , plus any re-cloth work
This room after drying out which took weeks , also had to have new Carpets , and new skirting and repainted .
