Should I buy a snooker table?

*Collaborative post

I’ve been dreaming about buying a snooker table for a while. I grew up playing snooker with my dad and it has always been a great sport to play with friends and family when we go to the pub. It’s fun, challenging and gives everyone the opportunity to have some healthy competition.


And the benefits of snooker don’t stop there. The World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association (WPBSA) shared a study that showed the positive effects of snooker on cognitive development and mental health.

“There are many promising results that promote snooker as a leisurely activity for older people. The results have also indicated an improvement in older people’s well-being over the course of the snooker activity…this signifies that playing snooker can indeed be made an important factor in developing social integration and improving older people’s well-being.”

I believe that snooker is great for all ages – have you played it? Motherhood The Real Deal also shared her thoughts on traditional games like snooker, saying that “Traditional games offer much more than fun family time, these games can help kids develop essential skills, such as cooperation, respect, teamwork, competition, creativity, strategy and social skills.”

If you haven’t played snooker before, do it. Trust me, you will have a great time! It might take you a while to get used to potting snooker balls and handling the cue the right way, but with practice, you will get there!

All of this to say that I’ve considered a Hamilton Billiards snooker table. Hamilton Billiards are a family-run local snooker table manufacturer and restorer. I thought that if I was going to buy a snooker table, it had to tick some boxes.

- It has to be from a local business

- It can’t be a full-size snooker table

- It has to fit my home

- Handmade (if possible)

If I’m going to spend money on a snooker table, might as well go all out and go for a stunning, handmade snooker table made by craftsmen in the UK. I’m all up for helping local businesses, and Hamilton Billiards seem like a great business to buy from. Plus, as a member of The Guild of Master Craftsmen, Hamilton Billiards, I feel confident in their craftsmanship to create a one-of-a-kind table perfect for my home.

Looking for unique snooker tables for sale proved to be more difficult than expected. There are so many snooker table suppliers out there but none seemed as unique as Hamilton Billiards, and that’s what I liked about them. I don’t want a factory-made snooker table, I want a bespoke snooker table that has been made for me.

Another point is that it couldn’t be a full-size snooker table. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough space in my home for one. However, it comes as no surprise how happy I was when I found out that Hamilton Billiards can create custom snooker tables in various sizes, from 6ft snooker tables to 8ft snooker tables and even snooker dining tables.

Hamilton Billiards tick all my boxes – should I do it? Should I buy a snooker table?
