Bar Billiards (NZ) is proud to bring this traditional English game to New Zealand.
It is a game that has been played in English pubs for over 70 years, and is now enjoying a huge resurgence with over 50 leagues playing and culminating in an all England championship.
Invented in 1933 this game has been a huge hit ever since for players young and old.
Bar billiards (NZ) is pleased to announce this magnificent game is now being re-manufactured in England and distributed by us in New Zealand.
As the game draws to the end a bar drops to stop the balls, thus the name Bar Billiards.
These top quality slate bed tables operate on a battery powered electronic timer (the original ones being clockwork),
the timer controls the ball baffle bar which stops the balls being returned after approximately 8-10 minutes has elapsed.
The game can be played by yourself and up to 4 people in teams
