We are looking for a nice conditioned modern full size snooker table
for a client in our area of Nottingham & Derby
as close to Nottingham and Derby if possible and a Ground floor located table is possible please
Cloth condition or nets and leathers not important , but good bounce , good slates and good woodwork is what my client is looking for , we can renew the cloth nets and leathers .,
Tables we are looking for are like these .
A Karnehm and Hillman
even a Karnehm and Hillman square leg
An Enbild again turned or square leg will be considered .
If you have a table for sale please send photos of the table including legs pockets and top surface and all accessories that are with it to
with your post code and if the table is on Ground floor
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 advertise many second hand snooker tables on our site
these are Private sales and I have the sellers contact details
these sales are direct sales from the private sale and not from GCL billiards
a lot of people phone up and ask about a table they think is in stock , this is not the case
we do not buy tables to sell we are a maintenance company and we also do logistical work relocating tables .
This table for instance was advertised for sale yet the owner also advertised it for sale on Ebay .
this table sold on Ebay so we would not have known unless the seller had contacted us and explained it was sold , as this owner did in Lincoln and we now know it is now not for sale .
we get a lot of people who also sell their tables by other means , while it is advertised on our web site still for sale and they do not let us know .
So to avoid confusion any advert more than 6 months old is going to be removed off site when I get around to it .
If any seller wishes to re advertise then please get in touch , if you see your table has been deleted from the sale page , or you are closing in on 6 months and you wish to renew .
by doing this we can keep a fresh for sale stock on our Tables for sale page
PLEASE NOTE it is FREE to list a table on our site , we only take a very small commission if we find a buyer for you . just £25 for admin use .
NO SALE NO FEE . Buyers there is no commission fee , but we are now starting to charging £25 to broker a deal with the seller . thus we will make £50 per deal from buyer and seller at £25 each .
this we think is Fair for our sales and buyers page .
We do have to make a profit in our business and the buyer is free to choose any billiards firm to move the table , so without these small charges of £25 each we would be operating a service which is unsustainable .
We have to make our small profit it all adds up into a wage and profit for the firm going on .
Remember as a BUYER you get a professional Billiard fitters expert opinion of each table sold , certain makes and models to look for , problems or expense going forward if you buy a certain table
and you only pay the £25 if you buy a table from our advert and our referral to the seller .
I especially have very useful information when it comes to 8ft tables as there are a lot of 8ft tables you should avoid buying .
and yes a lot of full size tables too you should avoid .
Also please note any BUYERS , the cost of relocating a table or any work it may require is not included in the for sale price , you are just buying the table direct with no middle men fees
( only the admin £25 fee ).
once bought you can then ask GCL billiards for a quote for any upgrade of cloth nets leathers , Rubbers , and the cost of dismantle load and unload and erect on site .
We always take care loading and unloading , but please inform if any stairs are involved as we have stopped doing the stairs work now we are in our later years of fitting .
we just do Ground floor to Ground floor delivery of table work .
this is due to over 40 years of lifting and back and joint trouble , if we carried on lifting slates up and down stairs we would not last much longer in the fitting of tables .
or even Maintenance of them , I intend to carry on working into my 70’s so the less strain on those week points will mean i can last a few more years yet maybe even 10 more years at fitting and re-clothing tables .
Lets just say it is like footballers playing for a top premiership team and slowing down in his old age , and then finds himself playing in Division 1 or 2 of the football league for a few more years.
Lets say like that footballer who likes to play , I like my work at fitting tables and re-clothing them and need to drop down a division or two to carry on .
A few less days and no stairs so to speak .
The less of these stairs involved will make sure I reach my goal of working well into my 70’s
We have a local client here in Sandiacre Nottingham / Derby border looking to purchase a 9ft Snooker Table .

We will be ready to collect this table anytime in the next 6 weeks , so please get in touch if you have a 9ft table .

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
