Posted by HLD 06 OCTOBER 2017

Home Leisure Direct turned 10 years old in September and we wanted to celebrate this with something big, something we’ve never done before.

We decided to throw a Home Leisure Direct Birthday Party where you could come in and have fun in our showrooms for free! To spice things up we decided to create a competition with a big prize.

On the 1st of October 2017 at 3pm, we held our first ever Home Leisure Direct Superstars Competition. A four-round tournament where you played on our best products against multiple opponents right to the finals.

The competition started off with pool as the first round. A match of the official world cup rules of 8 Ball Pool. Each match was intense, be it because of the overwhelming skill difference or the eye to eye plays where each player gave their all.


With the winners of the first round, we moved onto the second round. A 1v1 game of the classic Street Fighter 2 on one of our arcade machines. The matches consisted of a lot of tactical button mashing until one of the players was defeated.

We continued with the high score battle on our brand new Stern Star Wars Pro Pinball Machine. Each player had three balls to get the highest score possible. The scores were very close but in the end we had our final two players who moved onto our final round.

The final Round was played on a shuffleboard. This match was quite different from the others as both of the finalists didn’t have much experience with shuffleboard. It seemed the players were equal in skill but that quickly changed once the game started.

The winner with a score of 15 - 5, was Adrian.


Adrian said that he never expected to win the competition. Adrian told us that he wants to donate the table to his local pub. (what a great guy).


And there it is, our 10th Birthday Party and Superstars competition. Everyone had a great time both the people who took part in our competition and the people that came to have fun.

Happy Birthday to us, here’s for another 10 years!
