Always insist on UK MADE Northern Rubber by Hainsworth made in Retford Nottinghamshire .

I do a lot of Re-rubber work on full size tables down to pool tables
and the best rubber to have fitted is Northern Rubber by Hainsworth
now comes with yellow dot and a unique date code the rubber was manufactured in
and if you want the rubber fitted correctly then Geoff Large @ GCL billiards has over 46 years of experience fitting rubber and shaping pocket openings and undercut

If you want the best FIT THE BEST !

Telephone line back on now and the sheer amount of work we have to fit in before Christmas .

Telephone line connected again , fault  as suspected , corroding wires in the ground to box .
Well 2021 is fully booked out we cannot take anymore work in for this year .
my run of bookings for work  up to Christmas and new year is full .
without any possibility to squeeze even a small job in .

Coming out of covid has certainly had an impact on work required .
we are certainly overworked the Christmas run in .

I am off to St Anns on sea near Liverpool tomorrow
to correct another firms  faulty level of slate joint  fitting of a Brunswick 9ft pool  table and re-cloth it  .
it is going to be a long day with all the traveling from Nottingham .

I also have work booked in
for the Lincoln wragby area .
Ashby del a Zouch x 4 tables
The Cotswolds
Leicester and North of Kettering area
plus a lot of small jobs to infill
and a Premier Division footballer moving house and I have to relocate one full size from his new house to his old house then in the opposite direction an American pool table
from the old house to the new house , with an overnight stop over .

The Phone keeps ringing and emails are still coming in , and  people are prepared to wait until the new year for GCL billiards to do the work on their cue sports table .
If you are thinking of buying a second hand table and you have found one please send a photo and I will offer free advice
on what needs spending on it and the costs of transporting and re-erect plus things like re-rubber , re-cloth , nets and leathers .
or that advice may even be not to buy it if I think there are better buys out there for you
Remember it is buyers market when you are looking at snooker tables , especially full size ones . so many being given away or for low hundreds , take your time and ask for advice when buying or looking for a table .
get it wrong and you will be thinking , I should have waited for the right one to come along .

I am known for being very approachable in giving free advice  , and with over 46 years of Billiards fitting experience , you will be hard pushed to find another fitter with that experience ,
there are  a hand full of us Old time served fitters still around left , even if I am too busy I know a few of these fitters who I would  gladly pass on their details to you .

No BT Telephone land line connected at the moment

We are having problems with our BT land line and also our Internet connection at the moment which is in and out
Engineer has been round and thinks problem is in the main large green box out on the main road .
The whole  system has been not good for a couple of years now and I think the underground wire system is rotting .
we are not on fibre optics to the house yet and this needs doing to bring it up to Modern standards .

Please stick with GCL Billiards for Quality workmanship and a firm you can trust .
With over 45 years in the cue sports Business as a Time served billiards fitter , you can appreciate we know what we are doing .

from Re-rubber and re-cloth of snooker /Billiard tables .

American 8ft and 9ft Pool tables with three section slate beds . this example in Cadet Blue ,  in Hainsworth Elite pro speed cloth
Re-cloth and re-rubber plus house logistics move of pool tables to full size is also our speciality .

Loaded van of snooker slate , cushions frame work and light shades .
into storage for client , at clients own storage unit .

one full size table complete loaded .

Cloth colours , some grades carry a vast range of cloth colours others maybe only a few  ,
it all depends on what grade you want as to what colour you could choose .

For Example Paprika in Hainsworth smart cloth .

We also replace nets and leathers with Good quality UK sourced materials .
in fact we try and not use far east products , our cloth and rubber is UK manufactured too .

now and again we source antique scoreboards like this special example
at affordable prices when you compare them to the large billiard house prices .

A riley twin bevelled mirror scoreboard in oak .
we currently have two for sale  at affordable as they come price .

we also get a a few rotating cue racks in , but they fly out the door as fast as they come in .

We also get the odd second hand iron plus brush and balls and cues in now and again , not often just now and again .
the same with rests and heads .

last but not least we are now rebuilding our Pool table rental sites back up , if you fancy a brand new supreme winner table in Black pearl cabinet
fully maintained and re-clothed twice a year in Hainsworth  Match cloth , then contact Geoff at GCL Billiards we have three new ones in stock waiting for new sites .

Two tables we installed a couple of years ago as Rental tables .
although this pub is no longer here  , demolished to make way for a Iceland Shop in Stapleford Nottingham .
We stayed in contact with the owner and the landlord of this pub and we installed new tables back in to two separate pubs  in the next town of Beeston Nottingham
and they are still happy clients of ours .
Covid hit us hard on our rental sites with many pubs having the table out for extra seating , or just because they where locked down ,
but they are slowly coming back to us , one pub at a time and having their tables back or rather Brand new ones back as I sold most S/H ones that came in to make way for new stock .
there is a waiting list for new Supreme winner tables of 6 months , we have three in stock ready to go out for Rentals with another 6 on order to come is as replacements in March 2022
Rentals is not our main business but it runs smoothly at the side of our re-cloth and cue sports table maintenance business .
We prefer our rentals to be close to Nottingham and Derby .

Whatever you are looking for in the Cue sports table business Geoff at GCL Billiards come’s highly recommended .
