Thus what is an backyard pool table, what makes it suited to use outdoors? Well basically it is the same as any other pool table, except the frame and cloth are treated to protect against the elements. The frame is either pressure treated wood, just like the decking on your patio or fibreglass which is totally weatherproof. The fabric is treated with a Simonise type process so it repels water. ( We have seen the cloth put under a tap and the water just runs off and the cloth is dry to the touch afterwards-impressive) Other than that the rest is the same as any other desk you can find in your local pub, using the same balls and cues as you would in a pub or pool hall.
Also they are a slate bed pool table to say the playing surface is made of slate, so they will last quite a long time. 7 reviews The only thing that may happen is the cloth colour will get bleached over time after exposure to sunlight. In order to minimise this, always cover the table when you are not playing on it.
Typically the playing experience will be just the same as a pub pool desk only you will have bags of room being outside on the outdoor patio and you don't have to worry about if you have room in the house or not. Some of the tables also come with optional table tops and benches so your pool table can twice as a picnic table when you have barbeques etc . very useful. Also the wooden versions of the outdoor table can be matched to the colour of the discoloration on your decking, so it will blend in nicely.
When not in use say in the winter, the outdoor pool tables should be covered to stop results in and other autumn particles getting onto your desk. Usually they come with big covers that can be tied to the legs to secure them until they are being used again next spring. A really useful little garden furniture don't you think?
