A billiard table must be equipped with a slate (one-piece or multi-part slate) and weigh a minimum of 250 kg. Without it, when you lean on your pool table to make a shot, the pool table will move with you and never stay level for long.

Materials also play an important role in how much fun you’ll have to play on your pool table. The quality of the cloth, the use of solid wood (such as oak), the type of rubber bands used, the rectification of the slates… These elements have an impact on the budget to be planned for the purchase of your billiard table and must be taken into account so that you can compare the price of the different pool tables that interest you.

Finally, have the delivery and assembly conditions of your billiard table confirmed : travel of a technician, transport subcontracted or not, experience of the speakers….
