Thurston have been manufacturing Billiard/Snooker Tables since 1799. We are naturally proud of our heritage and the highest levels of quality associated with our tables, recognised by the numerous exhibition awards and Royal Warrants we hold. Thurston patented improvements to table design, the introduction of the slate bed and rubber within the cushions have enabled the sports of Billiards and Snooker to become the worldwide recreational activity it is today.
Our snooker tables are 'built to last', we only use the finest materials which are carefully selected to ensure consistency and durability. Our records of billiard and snooker table manufacturing, although incomplete, date back as far as 1886 and we are never surprised when one of our older antique tables suddenly reappears, usually by way of questions from the current owner when they discover the table number. We are sometimes able to provide complete histories of an individual table.
The basic construction of the billiard-snooker table has been the same since 1892 when the governing body selected a Thurston table as 'The Standard'. Before then tables of all shapes and sizes were constructed. The design & style of a new table can vary greatly, dependant upon the nature of the installation - commercial usage calls for streamlined design, whereas larger and prestigious houses can require far more ornate designs - and we have built for all types of room.
