If you’re in Australia and looking for the best pool tables Perth has for sale in the area, then there are a few important things that you need to take into consideration. First and most importantly, don’t simply buy a pool table based on its appearance. Even some of the best looking pool tables are made with the shoddiest materials and end up being a big money waster rather than something fun for you, your family and friends to enjoy. Do your research and follow these key elements when considering which are the best pool tables Perth has for your budget:

Money Matters – But It Isn’t Everything

Most of us assume that the more something costs, the better it must be. While this may be true in some cases, oftentimes a lot of pool tables that aren’t top of the line brands or prices are perfectly acceptable for beginner and novice players.

The price that you pay for any of the pool tables Perth has for sale online and in stores depends on the following factors:

The Size

Professional WPA pool tables are generally either 8 feet or 9 feet in size, though a lot of the recreational size tables are 7 feet in length. While a lot of people will want the “professional” sized tables, the fact of the matter is that most people don’t have the room to accommodate that size table.

When considering the size, it’s important to think about the room that a player will need for his or her cue, and for there to be room to walk around the table as well. There’s no point in buying an 8 or 9 foot table when a player’s cue is going to be jammed up against the wall when making a shot.

The Slate

Traditionalists will tell you that slate is a “must-have”, but when looking at pool tables, Perth has several non-slate options available as well. Non-slate pool tables have come a long way from when they were first introduced onto the market, and many quality non-slate billiard tables come with a warranty that protects you against any faulty workmanship.

Buying Online versus Retail

As a final consideration, think about whether you want to buy a table online or in person. Oftentimes you can save money by purchasing a table online for two reasons. One is that you may not have to pay sales tax, depending on where you live. The other clear advantage to buying one of the many pool tables Perth has for sale online is that you can save a lot of money as online sellers typically pay a lower overhead, and are able to then pass the savings on to the customer.
