Balmoral 6ft Pool Table


SKU: N/A Category:

The ultimate in luxury and accuracy for the English pool player.

Finished in real wood veneers with solid wood-turned legs, the warm sophistication of the Balmoral’s Mahogany or Oak cabinet belies its strength and the pinpoint accuracy of SAM’s ProActive cushion system.

The aluminum extruded top rails hug the cushions along their entire length for maximum ball response and consistency.

A beautiful table to grace your home tried and tested on the Professional circuit to provide the most accurate and consistent playing surface in the English pool, ever.

SAM tables with ProActive cushions have been used at the Annual BAPTO Pool finals for more than 15 years. The UK’s longest-running, largest, and most prestigious, pub pool championships.

English pool was conceived as a bar game that borrowed the skill and tactics from the snooker that British players were familiar with, played on a smaller table suitable for British pubs and bars. Innovative at the time, red & yellow balls are now synonymous with pool in the UK and the game has developed into a serious sport in its own right with a nationwide network of leagues and tournaments played to professional standards.

Top Frame/Slate options

Sports/Commercial – the top frame is hinged for ease of access to the slate and table interior for maintenance and reclothing. Catches are located on either side of every pocket to ensure a secure playing surface and accurate cushion response.

Professional/Champion – the top frame is secured by bolts to the slate for the most consistent and accurate playfield and cushion response.

SAM coin-operated pool tables are proven, high revenue earners. Stunning style and truly professional playing standards will attract customers and keep them coming back for more.

But its inside where the real innovation and quality shines through. SAM’s electronic systems ensure a fast return on investment, long site life, and low maintenance costs.

AccuVend is unique to SAM electronic tables, eliminating last ball retention. Don’t underestimate the effects of a pool table only partially vending the balls. Vandalism, refunds to players, extra work for staff, and dissatisfaction all around. That affects income and ultimately the viability of the table in the venue. By allowing the player to re-vend the balls if there is still one in the tray, SAM AccuVend keeps everyone happy and the revenue rolling in.

You may notice few other tweaks on SAM tables that make the operator’s life easier, save money and lengthen site life.

  • The top frame lifts back on a gas strut for added safety.
  • Setax bedcloths, Velcro fit cloths that mean that with a new set of covered ProActive cushions one engineer, with no specialist clothing experience, can recloth a table on their own in a fraction of the time a traditional recloth takes.
  • The pocket liners are long-lasting, tough moulded vinyl, screwed in place, not pinned. The aluminum top rail is bolted together to reduce movement and wear.
  • No less than 12 top frame clamps secure the top delivering great security and an even playing field. The steel cash door is separate to the ball door restricting staff access and providing greater security. Optional steel plate over doors and chrome security bars are available.
  • Mechanical coin meters are complemented by non-resettable meters on both electronic MPUs for double checks on cash collections.
  • SAM ball doors are secured by a single key, no need for two keys and a metre of chain in every engineer’s pocket!

Add all that to ProActive cushions, easy leveling feet, and extensive use of plywood and you’ll just feel the quality and experience ooze from a SAM table. Not a redesign of coin-operated table of the past but a total rethink on how to make a table attractive to players and profitable for operators, year, after year, after year.
