The largest Pool Table in the world is being used to create a new sport called Knokkers, where people play pool on top of the table instead of on standing on the floor.
Steve Wienecke created the 30 foot pool table in his back yard. “It’s exactly like a regulation pool table,” he said. “Only everything is scaled up to four times the size. Even the dimensions of the pockets are the same, just a lot bigger.”
According to the dailymail, “Mr Wienecke raised money to build the giant table with money donated from local businesses.”
“I knew they couldn’t tell me there was another one of these down the street. My wife, Tina, thought it was a little crazy. But when she saw the first game she said (you have something here), Mr Wienecke added. It’s safe, fast-paced, and entertaining for others to watch. Let’s just say – it’s very different, but in a good way. Long arms are definitely an advantage. But anyone can play, even kids. My kids and grand kids love to play. If you can thrown a hook in bowling you can get massé shots. That ball will grab the carpet and curl. It’s pretty intense.”
