As a country, we do have the power to choose: either we continue patronizing goods and services from outside the four corners of our land, because we revel in the illusion that what comes from abroad is necessarily the optimum, or we take conscience of the fact that we CAN do it ourselves and we tackle it head on.
Very clearly, Delali Ahiable-Addo [Dela or Mr Yates as he is affectionately called], our Star of the Month for July/August 2017, has exercised that power and thought outside the box, making it possible now for strong Made-in-Ghana pool tables to be available on the Ghanaian market. Oh yes! In collaboration with Kingswood Leisure, renowned pool table and snooker specialists in the United Kingdom, Dela makes quality pool tables right here in Ghana! He brings some of the pool table accessories from the UK and builds every other component thereof from locally-sourced material.
Dela is an alumnus of KNUST (1997-2001). He also holds a Master’s Degree in Information Studies from the University of Ghana (2001-2003). He is well-vested in his field of expertise, having acquired a vast experience in various kinds of pool tables both in Ghana and abroad.
In addition, he is extremely meticulous – nay, finicky about his business: absolutely nothing is left to chance, as every single deed or step is deeply calculated and taken into consideration while constructing a pool table. That is the more reason why he is a representative of Kingswood Leisure in Ghana. Kingswood Leisure UK’s assistance in establishing Dela’s pool table making enterprise in Ghana cannot be overemphasised.
Dela specialises in 7x4ft and 8x5ft pool tables. Not in mass production though: Dela runs a bespoke system, whereby all products are hand-crafted and tailored to the specifications, needs and wishes of the client. He also sells pool accessories in his shop located at Haatso opposite the Fidelity bank. Repairs and refurbishment of old pool tables are also available.
His targets are bars, clubs, restaurants and even individuals desirous of bringing the pool table fun home for good. What makes him happy as a pool table maker? When clients purchase his products and appreciate their acquisitions.
As a lover of the game, Dela assures that playing pool is fun, releases stress, helps in decision-making, and is a money-making venture when used commercially.
