Manco pool table hire brings new lease of life to retirement home
Manco Automatics’ pool table hire services are not just for bars and pubs; one recent happy customer is Heyeswood Retirement Complex, a residential community for the elderly.
We provided Heyeswood with a pool table to be used by residents – not only supplying a bespoke table to suit the surroundings of the complex, but also a hydraulic table lifter, which means the pool table can easily be repositioned if the space is needed for another activity.
Heyeswood’s Geoff Murphy said: “The day of the pool table’s arrival here at Heyeswood Retirement Complex was such a change for the male residents.
“The female side were gradually coming to terms with it – and indeed began to take part in, or at least watch the matches, especially the arranged ones such as ‘Killer’ or ‘Pudsey Bear’ charity nights.
“The social side was much improved here at Heyeswood, thanks to Manco Automatics, and the good service given with regard to the residents’ needs.
“Kudos to Chris Manion for his interest and involvement – many thanks, Chris!”
Chris added: “Following Heyeswood’s initial enquiry, it has been a real joy to provide them with a pool table. It is very obvious that it quickly became a focal point for socialising.
“From pub themed nights with music and drinks, to killer pool nights, to tournaments, there’s never a dull moment at Heyeswood.
“As well as improving the fun and games at the complex, the money that they raise from the profit-share arrangement is reinvested in food and drinks for forthcoming pool nights.”
Manco are happy to give something back from our side of the pool table hire agreement too – so for a recent tournament held at the complex, we donated a presentation cue to give to the winner as a prize.
It’s our way of giving a little extra, on top of the revenue raised for the retirement complex, and the boost in morale and general fitness for the residents through regularly playing pool for fun or friendly competition.
