Hardwood Northamptonshire Pins and Cheeses
Made in Britain
Masters Games provides pins in a good skittle hardwood as an alternative to the hideously expensive Boxwood. Over the years we've had them made from Beech, Rubberwood, Maple, Purpleheart and more recently Oak and Ash, depending upon availability. Cheeses are made in the same material.
Northamptonshire style is the more common pin shape. The pins are approximately 6 inches (160mm) high. The cheeses fit snugly in the hand at around 3 1/2 inches (90mm) diameter. Pins are provided polished, oiled or varnished for additional protection.
Please note that these pins tend to dent more readily than boxwood and will not last as long. For leagues that play seriously and/or very regularly, they may not last a season and Boxwood is a better bet. But for less intensive use, they will be fine.
This game is for play indoors and outdoors but it is not weatherproof or showerproof (warranty may be void if game is exposed to damp or rain).
