Surprisingly there are a great many different types of outdoor billiard tables for you to use in the modern day. With our advanced materials manufacturers can keep them looking great in nearly any sort of weather which has led to many more being developed. They are a unique way to entertain friends at a party that you can rarely get elsewhere.
Billiards tables have traditionally been an indoor piece of furniture and they still are. But in the modern day we have moved everything outside in one form or another. We have the materials to make sure these can resist nearly any sort of weather as well. It’s an amazing age to live in where you can have any piece you want anywhere you want.
When using it as an outdoor patio table you need to make sure that you have equally resistant accessories for it. Namely pool cues and balls that can withstand the elements for a time. While you can of course just store them inside there is some charm to having resistant ones to complete the whole set.
The party possibilities for this are endless. While it makes sense as a side piece for any party you could plan it around a tournament. Have a side area with refreshments while your guests play each other to see who wins. It could be equally amusing for beginners to casually hang out and learn the game over time.
Those going for a luxury outdoor furniture piece like this should keep in mind that it comes as a hefty price in many cases. If you want one that is highly resistant to all types of weather then you are going to spend over three thousand dollars in most cases. There are even models that are coin operated if you want an authentic feel or are putting it in a commercial restaurant. It is a true luxury piece that shows you really care about giving the best to those who visit you.
You can of course try to create your own outdoor patio table with a billiard cover. However that might be easier said than done because average ones cannot stand up to any significant amount of moisture. They will mold, crack and fall apart without much trouble at all. If you somehow have access to highly resilient materials might work.
If you have a semi-outdoor shelter with a cover for a normal billiard table it might also work as well. If you maintain it regularly and seal the top properly it can last for quite a long time. Of course moving it out of the way of a freak snowstorm might not be so fun so be sure to look out for that.
In the end though only you can decide whether the significant investment of time or money is worth it. If you are someone who loves this type of game then it probably is. If not you might be better suited for a smaller project. Tell us what you think.
