Pro Snooker Table

Posted onby admin

A slightly random post if ever there was one, this evening a number of you at home noticed during Neil Robertson’s 6-3 victory over Mark Allen that there is a box at the bottom of the table with a digital display on and subsequently asked what this is. Click below for the answer…

Beware you can go down the ranks as well as up. ∙ Play against 25 different computer opponents spread over 5 difficulty levels. ∙ Fully customizable tables, choose from over 100 combinations of table finish effects and baize colors. ∙ Play snooker on regulation 10ft and 12ft rectangular tables. ∙ Test your skills on the non-regulation Casket, Clover, Hexagonal, L-Shaped and Square tables.∙ Play 6 Red Ball Snooker, 10 Red Ball Snooker and 15 Red Ball Snooker. The Snooker Alley Pro Snooker table is an IBSF approved table. It matches international standards and its design in similar to that of the STAR table. It comes with imported slates, 1.2cm steel cushions and 6811 cloth. The cushions are fire proof and scratch proof.

Normally hidden from the view of the TV cameras, I noticed it for the first time at the World Championship this year (see picture above), when I was fortunate enough to be able to sit in the media seats for the first time. I assumed that it had something to do with the temperature of the table, though did not know anything specific.

A number of you eagle-eyed readers noticed this, including Julian who left a comment elsewhere on the blog asking:

“During the match that finished minutes ago (Neil vs. Alan), a display was shown on TV showing what the temperature of the table is. There was a number 50. What does it mean? I mean, 50C is too hot and 50F is too cold (around 10C). I’m confused.”

As ever, the debate spilled over onto Twitter which led @snookeroland from the Snooker Island forum to speculate:

“at a guess I’d say 50C is hot enough to warm through the slate to get 25-30C on the bed of the table #scientist

A logical theory and one subsequently confirmed by World Snooker‘s official feed as follows:

“correct Roland – although the bed of the table is more like 21C”
