The Regenta is a truly elegant piece, with its period styling embodying a regal dignity befitting of a timeless British game. Its hard-wearing steel frame is encased in a beautifully crafted hardwood cabinet, and its 3-piece sectional slate is encased by leather shield pockets. The table also features inlaid sighting spots along an exquisite wooden rail, distinguished by a distinctive hallmark.
The Regenta also features a number of customisation options, so you can make your table truly your own. The hardwood cabinet is available in a number of stains and finishes, including black ash wood, dark walnut, light walnut, mahogany, natural, silver or white.
Far more than a table, the Regenta is an icon; a historic game from one of the most significant portions of British history. Its traditional build hearkens back to the mid-20th century, where it was a common feature in grand country houses and gentleman’s clubs that spanned the British Empire. Six finely crafted tapered legs hold the table at a regulation height from the ground, making the Regenta suitable for tournament-standard playing. A trademark style and magnificent craftsmanship are key components to the Regenta, making it perfect for any home.
Our founder, Reginald Waldersmith, first learned to play snooker in Cairo, serving with the 8th Army during the Second World War. He was fond of confusing opponents by telling them they were ‘absolute snookers’, explaining that the term originally referred to an inexperienced army recruit, before it was applied to the game. This intriguing titbit was repeated so often that many of his colleagues eventually memorised his explanation word-for-word. We’ve been selling games tables since 1962, so we know a thing or two about our products! Our showroom will gladly assist you on any questions you may have before or after you purchase any Games Room Company equipment.
