Today I have started the job of leveling and re-covering 12 Full size snooker tables. The owners of this brand new club have erected the table frames and positioned the slates ready for re-covering by a qualified Billiards fitter, but they require moving and adjusting for level.
The reason the tables required moving was because they had put them too close to each other. After a look around I gave them my thoughts on how they should position the tables and make a seperate room for two Burroughs and Watts match tables, one having steel block cushions.
I will be adding some photographs of the club late tommorow. You will be surprised at how large these premises are. They also have 8 UK 7×4 pool tables.
The name of the club… THE HIDDEN SPOT. It is due to open at the end of April with table rates from £5 per hour.
***The club is situated on Denman Street East and North Kyme street just off Ilkeston road near canning circus *** PHONE Kal on 07427155182 for enquiries of booking tables
With very low cost parking nearby at £1 all day, what other clubs near the centre of Nottingham have that facility?
here are the photo’s of the club , there is a mountain of Blue carpet tiles to go down once all the tables have been positioned and covered
the above photo is of the match room , table on the right is a Burrooughs and watts with new 1990s standard cushion table not steel block but with a good set of welsh slate and very good solid pocket plates with extra broad bow leathers and new nets fitted , the table on the left a Riley square leg is being removed from the room and another burroughs and watts but this time a steel Block cushion table is being installed for the main N0 1 match table . both of these Buroughs and Watts tables having 2 inch thick best welsh slate , and they are very good for level .
I am advising them to install match lighting rather than the coffin shades , they will also have long bench seats installed around the edge of the room at a later date on a high plinth so that People can watch the games from a good view point .
the room will also be available for Private hire for snooker finals etc .
the pool table area , 8 pool tables in total , and they are thinking of installing an american 9ft pool table too .
the Hidden Spot is due to open this month , watch this space for more details .
