Posted by: on December 08, 2014

Retirement life has both its ups and downs. With diminished responsibilities, a retiree can relax and appreciate his morning coffee better. But it also imposes lots of limitations. Physically demanding activities are a no-no. This is why most old people are seen playing cards for leisure, not to mention complaining of joint aches from time to time.

But there’s good news to those who play cue sports: A study done in Denmark on two activity centers for the elderly actually found that activities such as billiards are perfectly suitable for ageing. An Express.co.uk provides further details:

Billiards is, first of all, an activity these men thoroughly enjoy and that enhances their quality of life while immersing them in their local community and keeping them socially active

billiards does constitute active ageing. Billiards is, first of all, an activity these men thoroughly enjoy and that enhances their quality of life while immersing them in their local community and keeping them socially active.”

And billiards is, secondly, very suitable exercise for old people because the game varies naturally between periods of activity and passivity and this means the men can keep playing for hours.

Not very many old people can endure physical activity that lasts five hours, but billiards enables these men to spread their physical activity out through the day.

Cue sports benefit players even in old age. Sports experts say that billiards improves physical coordination and keeps the mind active since it involves strategy, focus, and decision-making—aspects of life that retirement dormancy takes away.

It is therefore a wise move to play pool or billiards now and have one installed at your retirement home.

For example, there’s a foldable variant for the space-savvy, and some designs can also double as dining tables.

You may also choose among a range of top-grade construction materials for custom pool tables offered by gaming enthusiasts such as those from Pharaoh Manufacturing. The professionals can also design your table so that it can combine with other gaming furniture for a nice interior design blend.

You’ll reap not only the health benefits that come with cue games; a well-designed gaming area can also promote good bonding experiences between you, your family, and your friends during gatherings. After all, a healthy social life is one component of a gratifying retirement.
