Is It Worth Buying A Pool Table?
You might be asking yourself, is it worth buying a pool table? Well, if you love pool, spending quality time with your friends and family, and beautiful craftsmanship, then the answer is a resounding yes!
Did you know, there are also a lot of fantastic benefits to having your own pool table at home? Here are just a few of our favourites.
It’s a Truly Great Investment
Let’s cut to the chase!
Buying a pool table for your home is a great investment. Not just for today, but for the future too.
A high-quality table made from quality woods that is properly maintained can last for many, many years, becoming a future family heirloom.
What you pay out for this quality piece of gaming furniture is certainly rewarded with years of family fun and unforgettable evenings with your friends.
Your investment is not just in the great times you will have now but in all the great times to come in the future!
It Can Improve Life Skills
As we get older, we may reduce the use of some of our abilities, and as the old saying goes “if you don’t use it, you lose it!”. A game of pool can get you working on your mathematics, language, hand-eye coordination and so much more.
Let’s start with geometry and physics! Didn’t think you were still interested in those? Well, during a game you will have to come to terms with the different angles, velocity of the ball, and the effect of spin on your shots.
These games can also teach us all about healthy competition and teamwork; both important life skills. There is always time to develop these, and it's the most fun to do over a game you love.
Another aspect that playing pool can help improve is your critical thinking and intuition. These are improved the longer and more often you play and like these other life skills, have big benefits both at the table and out in the wider world.
It Can Be a Big Confidence Boost
Being able to play whenever you get some spare time will undoubtedly improve your skills, making you much more confident playing against your friends at the pub, or even in tournaments!
This coupled with the improvement in life skills mentioned above could really give the kids, and adults, in your family a great boost in self-confidence.
The saying “practice makes perfect” didn’t come out of the blue! When you develop your shots and signature moves - everyone will be giving YOU the winning rounds.
It’s Great for Socialisation
We all know that playing a game of pool at the local pool hall or bar makes for a great night out but being able to play at home can be even better.
Having a pool table at home means the whole family can join in, this is great for improving socialisation skills in kids and gets them away from the TV or their iPads.
It’s also a great opportunity to bring different generational or friendship groups together for a bit of friendly competition. Having your own pool table at home is such a fantastic way to bond with your family and bring everyone together. You can read more about the benefits of a family pool table here
It’s Good for Your Health
Yep, that’s right, playing games like pool regularly can be great for your physical and mental health!
Routinely playing a game of pool can help with your core strength and balance as well as burning a few calories. There is also the benefit of improved hand-eye coordination which is especially good for us older folk. Playing pool will stimulate your brain, increase focus, and boost coordination.
There is no doubt that playing games and spending time with your loved ones also helps to boost your mood and improve mental health.
