8 Ball Cue Stand - Now in Four Colours

Recently we received a new brochure through the post with the new refreshed and updated 8 Ball Cue Stand. We have been selling these cue stands for a couple of years but now with this brochure came the launch of 3 brand new stock colours.

This week we launched them on our website, as well as the updated traditional black 8 ball cue stand the product is now also available in silver, white and for the snooker fans out there in red.

The 8 Ball Cue Stand has the following specification:

- Hold up to 9 snooker or pool cues, or extensions and rest sticks
- Tapered self-locating holes
- Made in the UK
- Manufactured from durable, shatterproof, high impact polystyrene
- Soft padded base to eliminate slipping and protect flooring
- No mounting or ballast required

Each one regardless of the colour is available for £119.97 with fast and free UK mainland delivery. If you have a brand or colour scheme in mind please contact us for a quote as these stands can be made to order with your own branding if required.

O'Sullivan Sticks to His Word

Courtesy of
It seems as if the World Snooker season has only just finished with the culmination of Ronnie Sullivan's fourth World title at the beginning of May. Well, after the three Q School events that saw 12 players promoted to the professional ranks for the the next two seasons (including Scotland's Ross Muir who we have followed for many years - blog post to come this week) June see's the start of the 2013/14 season with the Bulgarian Open or ET1.

The draw has recently been released by World Snooker and the exciting news is that Ronnie O'Sullivan has stuck to his word when he said he was going to play some smaller events in the new season.

Joining him is John Higgins who looks to try and wrestle some form back into his game after a difficult end to the last campaign.

For some more information on the draw and the players invlolved in the first event of the new season you can do no worse that go across to and read Matt's article, ET1 2013/14: Drawsheet Available.

If you haven't visited Pro Snooker Blog before then it comes highly recommended from us.

Snooker Cues Move into New Premises - and us!

For the past three years we have done the majority of our trade from a loft conversion in our home, needless to say we have outgrown it.

Today we have opened in brand new premises on Portland which gives us the freedom to hold more stock and also be available for more regular walk-in trade.

On site we will house around 75 different snooker cues plus a vast array of snooker accessories and cue cases. These items can all be viewed on site and can also give you a chance to have a physical hold of a snooker cue or cue case before purchasing.

We don't hold every item in stock all of the time so it is always worth giving us a call in advance of a trip especially if you have a specific product in mind.

This does also mean a change of address and telephone number for the business which is currently listed on the website but that I have also placed on here for ease.
