Given our country’s record of inventing many of the modern world’s most popular sports, it’s not surprising that some of the UK’s real business success stories are drawn from this field. Click here to find out more about Riley snooker, which is an excellent example of British know-how in the sporting world. From its beginnings in the 1890s right through to the 21st century, the firm has seen its fair share of ups and downs, but the current healthy level of interest in the sport, especially from the Far East, most notably the huge Chinese market, augurs well for its future. Using skilled craftspeople and the finest raw materials helps ensure Riley stays on top of its game and is seen as one of the most prestigious manufacturers of cue sports equipment in the world. Some of the best pool tables, snooker tables and cues come from this stable, including the world-famous Aristocrat Tournament Champion. A selection of very special examples of this model are on sale on the site – special because they were actually used in ranking tournaments like the Welsh Open, the UK Championships and even the World Championships. What an amazing opportunity to share in a bit of snooker history!
