Let’s face it, we Canadians spend A LOT of time indoors during the fall and winter months. When the weather is cold and wet, we bring the fun inside and play pool!

When buying a pool table, you’re making an investment. If you’re in the market for a quality pool table, then you must make sure that it’s a slate pool table. Keep in mind however, that a slate pool table doesn’t always ensure quality. Our friends at Canada Billiard put together the following practical guide to shopping for a slate pool table:

  • The slate must be precision-machined level to within 10/1000 of an inch and be guaranteed for a minimum of 5 years.
  • The greater part of the rails must rest on the slate.
  • The rails and the slate must be bolted together to ensure constant rolling and fast action.
  • The cushions must be made of natural rubber, not synthetic rubber. They must be set at the official height to prevent the ball from jumping. To check the quality of the cushion, throw the ball strongly against it and evaluate the rebound.
  • The frame of the table must be made with oven-dried laminated wood to prevent warping.
  • All pocket openings must comply fully with the B.C.A. specifications (Billiard Congress of America).
  • The cloth must be a blend of finely woven wool and nylon to resist normal wear and ensure an excellent game.

Whether you’re in the market for a pool table, pool table accessories, or other games room supplies, the experts at Calais Spas and Billiards in Nanaimo have everything you need to bring the fun indoors!
