New pool tables sometimes fetch a price of over $10,000. For an amateur player, this investment is too steep. Don't be fooled into thinking your only option is buying a used pool table, as there are still plenty of billiard tables at affordable prices.
Because of their size, many people decide to sell pool tables before a move or renovation. Similarly, some families pass their billiards equipment down from generation-to-generation. Along the line, someone might decide it's not for him or her.
