Default Bahrain Pool Table and Proxy

Anyone know if there's a place in Bahrain that sells pool tables.
Am considering taking mine with me but need a pool table assembly dude to put it together.

and is there a UAE style internet proxy blocker thing in Bahrain?

There wasn't a proxy last year, but ADSL is pricey.

Pools tables - there is a place near to the British Club, sports shop on corner of main road. They had a good selection in last time I was there.

Sorry, I'm crap with directions and road names.

Yes - unofficially until about 3 hours ago.
3 years in Dubai and it's time to leave. Couldn't bring myself to paying nigh on 100,000dhs for a 1bdrm apartment in barsha with a view of another building 3 feet away when (hopefully) for that sort of cash i'll be in a nice villa near the sea with a boat and a beer or two.
No date as yet but before month end certainly.

Another house party might be on the cards or at least beers somewhere before I go.

Know someone who's got a company that sells them, will try and get the contact details for you tomorrow. Not sure price wise though..

Am here in the sandpit so if you need anything, just whistle!

yeh, we have roads here too now, big cous' Dubai down the road told us how to make 'em so we just decided to try it!!

Yes Bahrain is a bit of a little cousin compared to Dubai but we do have the majority of things, although not much of selection at times, but we get by

OK my friends tells me they range from around 15-30K AED but there are cheaper ones available which are not recommended.

He can arrange one for you when you get over if you like - pass me you email and I'll forward it to him.

Crickey - mine was 4,500 new and is perfectly fine. Was reduced from 9k though.

Anyway - was looking for an assembly dude but I assume if they sell them - they assemble them.
Will PM my details.

Many thanks.

P.S. Missus is telling me i'm not allowed to take the pool table with me. Personally I don't see the problem in turning the bedroom into a bar/poolroom and sleeping on the fold out couch.

Chicks eh!
