Why are they so much heavy?

You may now think of why they are so much heavy. There is obviously some reason behind it.

If you would like to find out the reason, then you need to consider the construction material of the table.

Pool tables can be made with wood or slate.

The wooden made pool table can be a little lighter than the slate made pool table. Wooden pool tables are made with maple, mahogany, oak and thus takes a little less weight. But after a long time use, there is a chance that they will start decaying. So, you need to be aware of this, and you have to make sure that you polish the table after two or three years of use.

On the other hand, slate made pool tables are easier to give a plain shape, but they are heavier than the wooden made pool table and thus are long-lasting. You will need not to spend more money on maintaining the table.

As slate is a kind of metal, slate made pool table thus takes more weight than the wooden made pool table.

In time of buying a new pool table, it is totally your decision whether you will buy a wooden made pool table or a slate made pool table.

If you can manage to put some extra budget, then we will suggest you to buy a slate made pool table because this will give you a long-lasting durability and smooth playing experience.
