Stunning contemporary design allied with the rugged durability of solid ply and aluminium extrusions make the Atlantic the 21st century choice for English pool. The aluminium extruded top rails hug the cushions along their entire length for maximum ball response and consistency. Whether in striking Silver, Allegro marble or a wide range of standard and custom formicas, the Atlantic delivers ProActive cushion response on a true championship table. If you take your pool seriously a SAM Atlantic is the table for you. Atlantic tables have been used at the Annual BAPTO Pool finals for more than 15 years, which are the UK’s longest running, largest and most prestigious pub pool championships.
English pool was conceived as a bar game that borrowed the skill and tactics from the snooker that British players were familiar with, played on a smaller table suitable for British pubs and bars. Innovative at the time, red & yellow balls are now synonymous with pool in the UK and the game has developed into a serious sport in its own right with a nationwide network of leagues and tournaments played to professional standards.
The Atlantic comes in a choice of 6ft or 7ft sizes and a wide variety of finishes.
ProActive Cushion system – SAM Pool tables feature totally aluminium extruded top frames. All top frame components are bolted metal to metal reducing movement and wear, and the frame fits more accurately to the cabinet. The real genius of the ProActive system is in the cushion fit, as these are profiled to match the aluminium top and secured by a full length plate. Standard 10mm bolts fit snugly into the extrusion and give consistent cushion response along the whole length. Top players have likened the ball response achieved to that of a steel block snooker table. ProActive cushions provide the most accurate and consistent cushion response ever achieved on any single piece slate pool table and will delight seasoned players of English pool.
The Atlantic Champion comes with standard cloth in a choice of 6 colours but Smart cloth can also be specified, which is a superior material and comes in a wider range of colours. (Please refer to the menu above)
The plywood construction gives these tables great strength and durability without excess weight, whilst making them less susceptible to damp conditions. They are also easier to repair when damaged, and much more hard wearing around the joints and fixings than the more commonly used MDF. This table also features carpeted internal ball runs to reduce the noise as balls return to the baulk end exit box.

Reginald Waldersmith played his first pool game in 1958, and although he had a bit of initial difficulty with his cue handling (he was aghast when his opponent advised firmly holding the butt) he took an immediate liking to it. 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.
