We presently offer Bristol skittle pins in two types of wood - see the skittle pin timber page for more information. Wood is a natural material and skittles is a damaging game - for more information on returns and defects, read our Timber Quality Statement.
Some pubs and leagues have sets of skittles with a Fattie Annie. This is a type of kingpin which is the same size as the other pins but which is marked in some way to make it stand out. Sometimes the top is painted but usually it just has a line marked around its centre - customers normally just put some white tape or paint around the middle. However, at additional cost we can provide a set of pins with a line turned into the wood around the centre of the Fattie Annie - contact us for prices.
Made in Britain
In pubs, the 4.5 inch pins are usually played with 4.75 or 5 inch diameter balls; 5 inch pins tend to be played with a 5 inch ball. 4 inch pins might be used with 4 inch or 4.5 inch balls.

April 2013 We have a single set of solid 4.5 inch Beech skittles that are seconds. Some of them are not perfectly round and one or two have a slight crack in the ends. We think they will play as well as a normal set but will offer £40 off the standard price for them. If one should break or split within the first 3 months after buying, we will get it replaced it regardless. Email us if you would like to buy.
