RILEY ARISTOCRAT TOURNAMENT CHAMPION2A snooker table is a thing of beauty, built by craftsmen, engineered to a standard envied by many imitated by few. No other company can produce a hand crafted table to the same exacting standard.

Sometimes in life we demand the best no matter what the cost. Some would call our approach arrogant. We prefer prestigious quality.

Wood type and cushion frieze

Manufactured from solid mahogany and selected hardwoods (optionally, you can select all mahogany construction); only the finest English made steels are used to build the cushion frieze. This ensures a precision response from each cushion.

Riley use a manufacturing technique in the cushions that has been the same for almost 100 years, often overlooked and dismissed as unimportant by competing brands. The Riley Aristocrat steel cushion is the finest in the world. Just ask the former world champions:RILEY ARISTOCRAT TOURNAMENT CHAMPION3

Graeme Dott 2006 World Champion
John Higgins 2007 World Champion
Ronnie O’Sullivan 2008 World Champion
John Higgins 2009 World Champion

Even to this day most professional players would choose Riley tables over and above any other.

Slate

Riley use the finest Italian laser cut, precision engineered, 4.5 cm thick slate. We are one of only a few, if not the only manufacturer, to use this prestigious quality slate. No other slate meets these exacting standards.

Five pieces of slate cut from one slab to ensure consistency when the slates are laid down. No filler, no joints, no lips. Just one seamless slate playfield.

Our table frames are designed with the unique Riley adjustable slate support system. These ensure that the slate is properly balanced to the frame and that the weight of the table is evenly distributed – this is key to keeping the table level over time.

Cushion Rubber

Northern Rubber – made in England

The rubbers used on the cushion and friezes (steels) are like caviar and champagne; they must go together to get the full benefit and enhancement to the playing experience.

Northern rubber is the world’s best, no question, and is standard on all Aristocrat tables.

Pocket Leathers

The pockets are made using English Cow hide leather to ensure maximum durability while at the same time providing a very fine quality leather that is soft to the touch yet does not crack under use.

The Cloth

West of England 6811 gold.

The finest cloth produced with the most glorious nap; bristly to the touch one way and as smooth as silk the other way.

Snooker tables are traditional and napped cloth is essential. The nap when used at the highest level will assist the most talented players. When used properly, the nap will allow a ball played at the correct pace to be drawn very slightly into the pocket.
