Also known as Hood skittles or table skittles, Northamptonshire skittles is a marvellous classic pub game from the English midlands.

The game's ancestor is old English skittles, the most venerable of all the alley skittles games, which is still played in London. This version takes up a lot less space while retaining all the excitement and skill and has been popular for decades across the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Bedfordshire.
The hood skittles table surface stands at thigh height with the top of the hood reaching fully 6 feet high. The table top is made in solid quality yellow pine while high quality leather covers the surface and walls in the traditional way. The rear of the table sports the trademark hood in robust netting. Tables are made by a craftsman from Leicestershire who has been making and repairing them for decades.
The default table is for the Northamptonshire version of the table. Depth 140cm, Width 102cm.
Unfortunately our craftsman has ceased to make this table from early 2016 and we are currently not aware of any other makers of Northamptonshire skittles tables. We do however, occasionally refurbish an old table for resale. Please check our second hand tables page to see if any are currently available...
