Xbox One or pool table, after reading this blog what do you think?
After a quick search on Amazon I can see that the new Xbox One with a game retails at approximately £449.00. Add to this that certain games released in the next few years will become an essential item on your shopping list and the total expenditure could amount to double this, and in some circumstances, for the serious gamer, even more.
A pool table, on the other hand, is a one-off investment which will come to less than your overall outlay for the Xbox One and will give years of fun for all the family.
Amazons starting price for pool tables for sale is around £150.00. This will give the family plenty of enjoyment and develop your skills but once the table is damaged, you might as well throw it on the skip because first and foremost, these pool tables are toys and not built to last.
If you are going to invest in a pool table then it is worth investing in one which has a slate bed. A new slate bed table starts at around six hundred pounds. But be warned, the cheapest deals on the net are not always the best. Always check first as it may be that a six hundred pound pool table is delivered only, unlike simply pool and snooker whose prices include installation. The other advantage of a slate bed table is that they are fitter friendly. In other words they are manufactured to enable the professional fitter to recover the pool table over and over again.
So, to conclude, in my experience video games are not sociable. Reports have been made whereby it is proven that video games played by young adults can cause the breakdown in family communications. The pool table on the other hand, gives all the family hours of fun. Pool is a game of skill but is also very sociable. Grandfathers can play a game with their Grandchildren pitting their skills against each other on equal terms.
At simply pool and snooker all our prices include delivery, installation and levelling correctly by professional fitters. Contact our sales team and you can be playing on the same pool table used in the recent world 8 ball championships as seen on Sky TV in your own home.
