Table Tennis And Snooker Business by Flakky26(f): 2:26am On Nov 05, 2020
I am thinking of starting outdoor games point business where people can come to play table tennis and snooker for a token fee of N100/N200 ,because in my area there is nothing of such and there are many drinking joints where people come around to drink,relax,eat fish etc .its always gets busy from like 3pm till like 11pm every day. you will even think they are having party because of the no of cars parked. Averagely, like 50 cars and about 150 persons come around there daily.

Pls i need your advise on this business ,the pros and cons . the viability of the business . Thank you.

Good business.

Make sure you buy a coin operated snooker table. Makes it easy to monitor the number of games played even when you are not physically present.

You can also add some spice to it. Maybe a soccer table if you wish. It's very affordable

Do you have an idea of the cost and where to buy a coin operated snooker table .

Do feasibility study first, don't base your decision on assumptions.
Ask the people who come around if they would love to play such Games if they were available and how much they could afford to spend on it

true but the danger is that while i am busy carrying out the feasibility study ,someone who has more financial strength can be faster than me to start the business.

From N270,000 to 1.1M ( source Jiji ) Like every other item, prices vary based on quality and brand image.

Between Ojuelegba to National Stadium Surulere, Lagos. You will find several sports shops within that axis.

This is just an assumption and it exists only in your head.
It is better to go into the business with accurate information and projections than to enter blindly. Its better to have a competitor than to waste your capital.
Moreover , Mr A and Mr B can be doing the same business but in diffrent ways and be getting diffrent result.
Execution is key.

You need to check the age range and financial status of the people who come there to hang out before you start investing in the business. Older and more mature people are not likely to be interested in playing snooker in Nigeria

Your last sentence is actually very wrong.
I've been to several hang out spots where they have snooker tables and I discovered that most players are mature working class men who play snooker as a form of relaxation.

Some of them even come prepared with cue sticks, chalk etc in a pouch. Snooker is designed for level headed gentle men.

At the end of the day, it all depends on your target market.

Yes I know mature guys play snooker they usually do so at exclusive places where you have other mature and responsible looking people

From the description OP gave the hangout he has in mind will likely be where the snooker table is placed outside in the open where all manner of touts can access...no responsible mature person will go there to play snooker

Now I get your drift.

Do your homework and I wish you luck.
