Marcos American Pool Hall Edinburgh
State of the Art American Pool Tables
What is American pool? It is a group of cue sports games played on an American-style table and with American-style numbered balls. The balls are slightly larger than traditional British balls, requiring larger pockets to accommodate them. American tables also include diamond system markings on the rails. American-style pool is now the world standard for competitive billiards.
Here at Marcos, we have 19 American-style Edinburgh pool tables manufactured by SAM Leisure. Our K-Steel slate bed 9-foot American pool tables are the best money can buy, and we are proud to offer our customers the opportunity to play them. Each of the tables has been fitted with professional K-55 billiard rubber rail cushions for the most consistent ball response. These cushions are as good as anything you will find on a professional snooker table.
The tables are covered with top-of-the-line Hainsworth Elite Pro Cloth. Ours are fitted with banker's grey on the beds and black on the rail cushions. Hainsworth Elite is an exceptional cloth that is very fine and fade resistant. It is also a high-speed cloth ideal for tournaments and league play.
Pick Your Game
Our tables have been designed to accommodate all of the most popular American-style pool game styles for sanctioned play. Pick your game according to whatever you love to play most. We have a few suggestions:
8-Ball – This is the most popular American pool game played around the world today; it is also one of two standard games used for championship play. It replaced Straight Pool as the game of choice for competition several decades ago.
9-Ball – This is another championship level game played with the cue ball and object balls 1 through 9. You will need more than just shooting capability to win this game; you'll need a good strategy as well.
10-Ball – Think 9-Ball, but a little more challenging. An extra ball is added to the rack and players must call their shots prior to shooting.
Straight Pool – The classic Straight Pool lets you pocket any object ball at any time. Every pocketed ball equals one point; you play to a predetermined winning score.
We invite you to come and experience American-style pool at Marcos. We offer the best tables on the market and an unbeatable atmosphere!
