If you are considering buying a pool table, be aware that even the best models require upkeep. The felt replacement for the playing field can get expensive, at around $200USD a pop to recover the surface. You can get the felt on sale occasionally and try to do it yourself, but it is still costly.
Some accessories you should consider when getting your pool table include a matching cue rack, chalk, a scoreboard, ball rack and a bridge. You can also create a great environment with the right pool table lighting.
I believe that if you are going to play pool in your home, you may as well go all out and have a great set up. It’s perfect for entertaining.
