Pool Table Information

Billiard tables are the “playing ground” for various kinds of billiard games that vary in their mechanics. Billiard tables have been around since the 1800s and some signs indicated by Shakespeare show that billiards may have existed in the 15th or 16th century. The billiard game back then was considered the gentleman\'s game played by people of royalty.

First Billiard Table Manufacturer, Types and Standards. The first manufacturer and distributor of billiard tables was Brunswick. The Brunswick Company had been manufacturing billiard tables as early as the 1800s and has developed various models. Many of their models have gone through a series of improvements and innovations.

There are different types of billiard tables used for different kinds of billiard games. Some of these billiard tables may be classified as carom billiards tables, pocket billiards tables (or pool tables) and snooker tables. Each of these billiard table types may vary in their dimensions, pockets, cushions, bed, markings, cloth and materials.

Billiard tables used in competitions have a standard size. This means the table\'s dimensions are accurately calculated to fit the standards. If the billiard tables do not follow the standard requirements, they are considered defective for competitions.

Billiard tables can come in different designs, types and functions. Some people like their billiard tables to be color-coordinated with the rooms they are placed in. These people usually opt to have their billiard tables custom-made to their preference and style. There are even billiard tables which function like vending machines by releasing billiard balls when a certain amount of money is inserted into them.

Many billiard table options are available on the Internet, in sports shops, in antique shops, and even straight from the billiard manufacturers. It’s easy to be a part of this classic game by getting a billiard table.
