Riley – a name to reckon with in the world of snooker

There are plenty of instantly-recognizable names in the world of snooker, known even to those who don’t follow the game that closely – Steve Davis, Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, Ronnie O’Sullivan and more. If you take a look at, you’ll find another name that is perhaps less famous, but which has had just as big an impact on the sport as any top-flight snooker pro. Riley is a British manufacturer which has been busy making top quality snooker tables, pool and billiards tables, cues and cue sports equipment for decades. In fact, their standards of manufacturing are so high that they provided the tables used in the snooker world championships for many years. Their secret lies in a combination of the expertise they have been able to build up thanks to the experience of years working in this field, along with the premium quality materials that they use in everything they make. Their tables will feature the very best Italian slate, which is laser-cut for precision. The cushion and friezes are dressed with superb English-made Northern rubber, the pocket leathers are made from hard-wearing pig-hide leather and the cloth is also made in the UK and is noteworthy for its excellent nap.
