Many billiards players enjoy playing several game modes : French billiards, American billiards or even snooker. Each game mode has its own rules and especially a specific pool table. Indeed, French billiards is played with 3 balls and on a playing surface without pockets. While American billiards is played with 15 balls to pocket.
It therefore becomes hazardous to combine the practices if you need a pool table per game mode. This is why Toulet offers two technologies to vary the pleasures … with a single pool !
