Home Leisure Direct : New Showroom Opening

Posted by Jess 13 OCTOBER 2015

During the last year we’ve expanded our team to almost double the size to keep up with our rapidly growing business, opened up new offices, launched a variety of new products and even opened a new showroom!

The 8th October 2015 was the official opening of the brand new showroom, Carter’s Barn. We were very excited about the event due to the extensive guest list, open bar and the amount of hard work that had gone into the design of the showroom and the planning of the opening. 

There’s been a massive change in the building’s appearance and layout over a short 3-month period. Originally, Carter’s Barn was just an industrial building that stored tractors but, no more. 

Now the showroom is a great home to many of our products including pool tables and pool dining tables from our Signature Range, a few new pinball machines, a Jack Daniel’s Jukebox, Memorabilia pieces, a Shuffleboard and loads more.

Not to mention our stunning Serious Fun sign, which was widely loved by all of the guests.

We invited lots of our suppliers, professional pool players, foosball players and table tennis experts too. With the incentive of an open bar all night and food being served from 5:30pm, who could refuse?

The showroom launch kicked off at 2pm when Karl Boyes (Mosconi Cup Pool Champion) arrived to to feature in an exclusive interview with us and to show our team some of his best pool tactics. Karl stayed for the whole event, showing off his skills and even challenging Andy at a game or two.

T3’s Ping Pong Team arrived shortly after, alongside Hewley Griffifth (Table Tennis Coach). They brought a T3 Outdoor Ping Pong table with them, which allows six people to play at the same time. Some of the HLD Team joined them for a game of ping-pong, alongside some of the guys from Designer Billiards. 

Later on, we were also joined by Ben Mason, who is the Team GB Foosball Captain. The whole team were very excited to meet him, Roger and Stu even took on him and Ben C in a doubles battle on the Football Table. 

Roger also got into a ping pong battle with Ryan Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist in Table Tennis. The match didn’t end too well for Roger as Ryan came out on top, keeping up with his great reputation as Table Tennis Champion. 

Simon, Richard and Jason from Bluebox also came down to join in the fun. They had a great time getting involved and also had a few games on the AC/DC Pinball Machine. 

We would like to say another big thank you to all of our suppliers, customers and also to our staff for coming to the event and for all of their support over the last few years. We hope you all had as much fun as we did throughout the day and evening!
