SKITTLE PINS AND BALLS

SKITTLE BALLS


NEW WOODEN SKITTLE BALLS ARE UNAVAILABLE - SHOULD YOU WISH TO RESERVE A SET SHOULD TIMBER BECOME AVAILABLE PLEASE READ MY SKITTLE BALL NOTICE

We generally turn all our sets to order although we try and keep a small stock of the more popular sizes when we anticipate higher demand; however this cannot be guaranteed as there are variations in size requirements due to the regional variations of the game. We would therefore advise to order as soon as possible so we can endeavour to source the timber required. You are also advised to read our Timber Statement prior to purchasing.

We mainly supply Wooden Skittle Balls, the main range being from 4 1/2" to 5 1/2"; although the larger sizes (over 5") are dependent on the size of the timber available. We can source Composite Resin or Rubber skittle balls sets. Most League Skittlers prefer to use Wooden Skittle Balls and Lignum Vitae; has been the timber of choice as it is a very hard and heavy wood. This timber comes from the Rainforest, and is now becoming extremely difficult to source as it is on the CITIES List II of endangered species; as a result we are now looking at alternative timbers such as Angelim Vermelho. All sets are finished and ready for use.

UPDATE REGARDING LIGNUM VITAE (1st September 2019) - Put Simply I don't know when or even if Lignum Skittle Balls will ever be available again. My Timber Merchant has not contacted me to confirm when or if he will receive his order of Lignum Vitae; cylinders. There is also an issue with the Quality of the Timber; which I am unable to guarantee, therefore any new sets (if the do become available) would be sold on an As Seen Basis.

Lignum Vitae; comes from the South American Rainforest and has been harvested to near extinction. The Timber needs to be imported as there are trade restrictions under CITES (the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, also known as the Washington Convention - Lignum Vitae comes in this category). Reconditioned sets are available; however it is extremely unlikely that these will be any bigger the 4 3/4" in diameter.

For wooden sets 4 5/8" or smaller we advise checking our refurbished sets as turning timber to this size would not offer good value.

Teams, Pubs or Clubs are responsible for ensuring they order the correct style and/or size of Skittle Pins or Balls. Items are turned to order therefore you may be requested to place your order in writing (text or email) before they are turned. Should you order incorrectly, if unused the items may be returned; however there will be a £25 restocking charge on top of any additional costs. I reserve the right not to accept returned items if they are as per your order (e.g. if used or custom for a limited region). Please note if sets are used I will not do an exchange. I have had to introduce this policy due to a increase in instances where the wrong item has been ordered.

DUE TO THE EXTREMELY LIMITED AVAILABILITY OF LIGNUM VITAE ALL SETS TURNED FROM THIS TIMBER WILL BE SOLD ON AN AS SEEN BASIS. For sets supplied from other timbers please read the Timber Statement. Currently we have no Lignum Vitae available and do not know when or if we will obtain further supplies. Should we source some in the future we will advise.
