SKITTLE PINS AND BALLS

ABOUT US


WE SHOULD BE OBTAINING NEW SUPPLIES OF TIMER FOR SKITTLE PINS DURING THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER SO WILL BE ABLE TO START SUPPLYING TEAMS AND CLUBS. OUTSTANDING ORDERS WILL BE COMPLETED FIRST; HOWEVER IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NEW SET WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SUPPLY SHORTY

Located in Gloucestershire where the game of skittles is still very popular; Skittle Pins and Balls is two Skittle players who produce sets of Skittle Balls and Skittle Pins as well as refurbish existing sets of Skittle Balls in order to keep the traditional game of skittles alive. All the turning is carried out as a part time hobby, with the work being done in spare time.

Many teams prefer wooden skittle equipment as opposed to newer Composite Resin Skittle Balls or Plastic Skittle Pins; this is what we look to provide. We use Beech or Sycamore from local timber sources to produce Skittle Pins; all of which are turned from a single piece of wood and not multiple pieces bonded together. These are then finished with Linseed oil to help preserve the timber. Skittle Balls have been traditionally turned from Lignum Vitae; this is an extremely hard and heavy wood which comes from the Rainforest. However this is becoming extremely difficult to source as it is on the CITIES List II of endangered species; as a result we are looking at alternative options such as Angelim Vermelho.

UPDATE REGARDING LIGNUM VITAE - My Timber Merchant has contacted me and advised that he is expecting a small quantity of Lignum Vitae; cylinders; however due to CITIES restrictions and paperwork this is not likely to be available until the end of September / Early October. I have purchased a small quantity and aim to have sets available towards the end of October. If you are interested in a Lignum Vitae set please advise. Please note these will only be sold on an AS SEEN Basis.

We can also refurbish existing sets of Skittle Balls so they are like new, these can be Wooden; Lignum Vitae; Angelim Vermelho; Tufnol; or Permali sets; however we are unable to turn Composite Resin Skittle Balls.

We have supplied Teams, Pubs and Clubs from Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Somerset, Dorset and all across the South West including Devon and Cornwall as well as South Wales with their regional variants of skittle pins as well as the required size of skittle balls. If we are unable to offer the item you are looking for we are happy to point you in the right direction.

As there are regional variations you are strongly advised to check what you require before ordering; please visit our Regional Variations page where you will see images of the different styles of skittle pins that we are aware of and can produce. If you have something different then let us know, Skittle Pins are turned to order so we can produce most shapes and sizes.

Unsure of the dimensions? Use the Diameter Calculator where you can calculate the diameter of your item simply by measuring the circumference*.

Subject to size and condition we will also consider purchasing any old items, especially Skittle Balls, or taking in part exchange against an existing order.

If you require any further information please feel free to contact us either by email or by telephone; please note as I work during the day I might not be able to take your call, leave a message and I will endeavour to get back to you.

* - Please note the value is approximate and dependant on obtaining the correct circumference value.
