Got Tight Pockets?

Jun 9, 2011

We recently did a job for an up-and-coming pool player from Orange, CA. He found himself a used nine-foot World of Leisure pool table on Craigslist. He hired us to dismantle and move this mammoth three-piece slate table to his mobile home. My client wanted his pool table set up as a practice table, so the placement was a bit unconventional. He had me shove the frame all the way into the corner of his doublewide. This would allow him to have a professional size pool table to perfect his nine-ball game, and not upset his roommates by plopping a huge pool table right in the center of their living room.

My client plays a lot of pool at Danny K’s pool hall in Orange, CA. He plans on competing there in tournaments and wants to hone his game by practicing on a table with tight pockets. When he contacted me to talk about the modifications he wanted to be done to his pool table, there were two things that were very important to him. 1) He asked that we shim down the corner and side pockets to 4.25″ & 4.5″. 2) He wanted Championship Tour Edition cloth in tournament blue (aka electric blue).
