Pool and snooker tables first became popular in the late 19th century, when variations on classic games of billiards were devised to entertain British Army officers across the British Empire. It was known as a game for upper class gentlemen, but began to become more popular in wider society throughout the 1910s, snooker and pool halls began to open across Britain. In 1927, the World Snooker Championships debuted, and the game as we know and love it today was born. Soon after, pool and snooker tables of varying sizes went into production, allowing people to own them in their own home.
Games Room Company have been selling pool and snooker tables since 1962, so it’s fair to say we know quite a bit about them!
