As promised the new section for the Pool Table side of the business, this business is all down to my wife Carol and it is her venture and is run completely separate of GCL BILLIARDS.
I will be providing the recovering, installation and maintenance servicing side of the business so you can be assured that the maintenance of the Pool tables will be done by a fully qualified time served billiards fitter. There are not a lot of Pool table rental and sales firms who have that experience on board.
Most rental firms are also involved with gaming machines. Here at Double Eight Pool we DO NOT hire gaming machines, kiddy rides, crane grab or small portable sweet machines. We are 100% cue sports people offering you the best service for sales and rental of Pool tables second to none.
100% skilled in what we do?
For some firms, cuesports tables are part of their business. At GCL BIILIARDS & DOUBLE EIGHT POOL it is the only part of our business.
Rental service contracts are available with a recover every 6 months not just yearly. This is because as professional cue sports people we understand that pool teams play in winter and summer leagues and the table needs to be looking it’s best for the pool teams all year round. We also service the entire table, cleaning the inside including ball rails and tray, spraying the coin mech with WD40, cleaning the outside cabinet and levelling.
I was looking for a name to call the Pool table business and always think of Pool as an american game, something like double deuce as in the nightclub in the film Roadhouse, then the 8 ball entered my thinking so we just called it Double Eight Pool Tables.
This also got me thinking “why do so many betting companies use the number 8 in their domain name?”. It was explained to me that the Chinese favour the lucky number 8 and it is a highly sought after number in Chinese culture. I am not saying that the Chinese are a betting mad nation, but there may be some truth in it ?
The new web site for Double Eight Pool is now live at www.88pooltables.com, so if you are looking for a new pool table either on rental or to buy or have a table in need of a recover or new cushions, then get in touch with Geoff or Carol at double 8 pool. The telephone numbers are the same as GCL Billiards. We will be dealing in mainly NEW Winner and Prince supreme tables, but we will have a selction of second hand tables of various makes for sale. Also from time to time we will have some second hand American pool tables for sale.
