Alan Phillips in his Hull workshop making traditional bespoke snooker tables

5ft pool tables and full size snooker tables by Alan Phillips

Alan Phillips, owner of Matchsnooker, has been making pool and snooker for over 30 years. Equally important, he has played competition snooker and pool at the highest regional level. Therefore not only does he know how a competition snooker or pool table should be made, he knows how it should play.

Made to order 5ft pool tables and 12ft full size snooker tables

All tables are made to order, complying with the appropriate national or international match-play standards. Pockets sizes, ballsizes and cushion-rubber thicknesses conform to appropriate tournament rules, although table dimensions can be deliberately varied to accommodate customer's available space.

Attention to every detail

Commissions for pool and snooker tables are normally agreed by email, phone conversations, and -where practical - visiting (by appointment) our workshop in Hull. Every aspect of the commission will ensure that (a) we build the exact pool or snooker table you want, and equally important (b) we plan for all contingencies in the delivery and installation sequence.

Measurements, Lighting and Dining?

Dimensions of your room, and your desired optimum play experience, are the prime critical factors. Will the positioning of pool or snooker table require a surrounding convivial space? Which is the preferred method of table lighting, and are the electrics in situ? Is there sufficient flooring strength to sustain a heavier table? What is the preferred fixed playing height if the pool or snooker table is also to double as a dining or conference table?

Site survey?

If there is no adjacent access, or if the pool or snooker room is not on the ground floor, or the room is peculiar, we may need to supervise a pre-install survey of the location.

Because of these variable issues, not least the travelling distance from Hull, we apply a delivery and installation cost-schedule to all customer commissions for pool and snooker tables.

Delivery and installation charges

Prices are based on full-cost allocation, including a 2-man dedicated installation team, and an exclusive us-to-you delivery, at a mutually agreed time and date. Prices are ex-Hull and assume a ground floor location with easy access and adjacent parking.

All variable pool and snooker table specifications are agreed with the client.

Choice of Wood

Any hardwood or softwood can be ordered, with any type of finish, including French polishing. The most popular woods for pool and snooker tables are pine, oak, mahogany, beech and ash. Walnut and other exotic wood can also be obtained.

Choice of Slate Bed or Resin Based MDF

Italian slate is normally used for all snooker tables from 9ft to 12ft. For pool dining tables between 5ft and 8ft we provide the practical option of 25mm kitchen quality resin-based MDF. We are able to create a guaranteed play level, and one which is ideal where occasional manoeuvrability may be needed. 

Choice of Game

There are 6 main games of cue sports that are can be played on a table that ranges between 5ft and 12ft, whether at the required competition.  size, or as tables adapted for practice where space is limited. These are English snooker, English billiards, English pool, American pool, Pyramid (or Russian Billiards) or Carom (French billiards).

However whichever your preferred game the prime determinant is the varying ball sizes, which in turn sets the pocket openings and the cushions heights.
