Having a billiard table at home is the assurance of spending many hours of relaxation and leisure time with your family. Whether it is pool billiards, English pool or even snooker, billiards is accessible to all generations.

From 7 to 87 years old, playing billiards alone or in a team allows you to exchange and share moments with friends or colleagues but also to get rid of the stress of a working day.

A beneficial activity on many levels

Unlike other sports, billiards can be played at any age. In fact, the physical efforts necessary to practice billiards are neither violent nor aggressive to the body.

Moreover, the benefits of playing billiards are numerous. We can mention in particular the capacities of reflection, anticipation and concentration which are essential to progress.

Moreover, the execution of the shots requires skill and perfect synchronisation of movements: by playing regularly on your billiard table, you are also practising a gentle sport with many benefits for your health.

Finally, in terms of teaching, each player will find in the billiard table, according to his level, a field for learning and playful experimentation of the main laws of physics and geometry!

In the end, billiards is a mixture of discipline and self-control but also an object of conviviality and sharing.

The billiard table: a decorative element in its own right

When you buy a billiard table, you are buying a piece of furniture that should fit into your interior as well as possible.

For example, buying a billiard table that converts into a table (with a top) means that you don’t have to dedicate an entire room to it and thus optimise the space in your dining room or living room. Whether your interior is design, contemporary, industrial or classic, there is necessarily a model of billiard table Bréton which will correspond to it (discover our ranges of billiard tables).

The numerous possibilities of personalisation such as the colour of the cloth (white, black, red, blue, purple…), the shape of the legs, or the choice of finishes will make your billiard table a unique model which will enhance your interior. You will be able to mix materials such as wood, stainless steel, metal and glass in order to match all decoration trends.

And if you prefer to buy a second-hand billiard table, it is also possible to bring it up to date to give it a contemporary look.

You are now convinced of the interest of buying a billiard table, but how do you choose yours?

How to buy a billiard table?

We are now going to tackle the main points to study before you start buying your billiard table, whether it is a Billiards Bréton table or not.

Take stock of your needs and desires

At the same time leisure, sport and decoration element of your interior, your future billiard table should not be chosen lightly: you rarely buy several billiard tables in your life! A billiard table is an investment, even for beginners: buying a poor quality product will not make you want to play as much as you want and may even make you regret your purchase.

So define your needs well in advance:

  • Which game mode will I play most frequently?
  • Do I need mixed Carom-American billiards? Or an English pool billiard table?
  • In which room will my billiard table go? What is the size of this room and its function? How do I access it?
  • Am I looking for a new billiard table or a second-hand one?
  • What is my budget for the purchase of my billiard table?

Don’t compromise on the main technical points

A billiard table must be equipped with a slate (monobloc or multi-part slate) and weigh a minimum of 250 kg. Otherwise, when you lean on your billiard table to make a shot, the billiard table will move with you and will never stay level for long.

The materials also play an important role in the fun you will have playing on your billiard table. The quality of the cloth, the use of solid wood (such as oak), the type of rubber cushions used, the grinding 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 in order to be able to compare the price of the different billiard tables you are interested in.

Finally, have the terms and conditions of delivery and assembly of your billiard table confirmed: travel of a technician, sub-contracted transport or not, experience of the people involved…. You will only enjoy your billiard table if it has been installed according to the rules of the trade! At Billards Bréton, we take care of organising the transport, delivery and assembly of your billiard table anywhere in the world.
