Bonzini

Post by Dr Clam » Sat Feb 10, 2007 11:06 am

I have just got my hands on a Bonzini table and it has come with 5 white plastic type balls?

I have been used to playing with cork balls.

Can someone please advise me on the different types of balls available for the Bonzini and also the best place to get hold of them.

Cheers,

Dr Clam

Hi Ben,

There's a tournament in Southampton this weekend so most of the people who read this forum won't see your question until next week.

Some of them (eg Caroline or Boris) might have some good advice on where you can get balls.

Cheers,
Rhys

Cheers for the suggestions and the advice to wait for some more replies next week.

I have looked into those links and also tried to contact Paul Spirou of Table Toppers (www.footietables.com) but it looks like they don't open on weekends.

Has anyone ever done any business with him?

I ordered some cork bonzini balls from Paul a while back on Caroline's recommendation

they have been excellent and are the official 17g competition ones in natural cork colour

decent price too
