Features

Multi-functional

The Hathaway Park Avenue biggest strength is its ability to easily transform from a pool table to a table tennis court or a dining table.

I just love how we instantly have three tables occupying the same space with a single purchase!

Its leg panels have individual levelers, making it adaptable to imperfect floor surfaces.

Others

  • The classic black table with a chrome accents exudes sophistication. It perfectly suits our room’s light earth tones.
  • It has two comfortable benches that also double as storage space for the game accessories.

Design and Specifications

The Hathaway Park Avenue is smaller than regulation size pool tables.

It comes in two neatly packed boxes and weighs more than 300 lbs. You should be ready with back-up to help you bring it to its assembly location.

The playing surface is a three-quarter inch thick MDF covered in red felt.

It also comes with a double-sided laminate top. On one side is a table tennis court while the other side is a plain black surface which instantly converts it to a dinner or multi-purpose table.

Its multi-functionality is complemented with a complete set of accessories: pool cues, pool balls, a racking triangle, chalk, net, posts, and two paddles.

F.A.Q.

hathaway-park-avenueWhat’s the quality of the felt? How long will it last for?

I have not noticed any imperfections with its smooth red felt. It looks finely done and should last a long time.

How long does it take to assemble?

There is not much assembly that has to be done. However, its weight makes it a bit difficult to maneuver.

I would also like to give credit to the manufacturer for its excellent packaging. The table arrived in perfect condition.

Does the table have wheels?

No, it doesn’t. It should not be a problem because it is not advisable to move it around frequently considering how heavy it is.

Can you fold it?

No.

Does it have ball return?

No, it does not have a ball return mechanism.

Are the benches padded?

No. The benches are not padded but they are still very comfortable to sit on.

Where do you store the dining top and table tennis top?

They come in two halves that do not fit in the benches. You can just lean them against a wall.

Other Options

Another versatile game table is the Newport 7′ Pool Table Combo Set. It’s worth double the price of the Hathaway Park Avenue, but I really don’t see any major advantages of the Newport one.

It does not come as a surprise that the Hathaway Park Avenue made it to our top 5 portable pool tables list. Check out our comparison of them here.

Conclusion

The Park Avenue is an affordable choice for a high-quality, multi-functional pool table.

The only downside is its weight, but you don’t need to keep transferring it from one place to another so that shouldn’t be a problem.

As you invest in quality time with your family, you will not regret investing in this wonderful pool table.
