Fenner Hart,  Owner

“I have been around American Billiards & Outdoor Recreations all my life.  It was only natural for me to carry on the family tradition and take over this business from my father in year 2001.  Even while studying at West Virginia University, where I earned my degree, I dreamed about running the family business.  I still vividly remember when, as a little boy I watched my dad, Fenner G. Hart Jr., put the finishing touches on a product he was servicing or selling.  It was his baby. He really took great care  of his customer.

We strive more than ever before to adhere to the same principals set in motion by my dad.   We must provide our customers with exceptional service, knowledge, and expertise on all the products we sell and service.  Furthermore, we must provide great products with a long history of endurance, beauty, and functionality.

You can be assured that when you buy from American Billiards & Outdoor Recreations you are getting the best avialable.”

Kelly Chapman,  Manager

I was born and raised here in the great mountain state of West Virginia.  I grew up in the small town of Clendenin and graduated from Herbert Hoover High School.  

 My career choice is here at American Billiards & Outdoor Recreations.  It is where I will do my best to provide you with an exceptional sales and service experience for all of our products we have to offer.  For a small local business, we have a lot to offer compared to the big box stores.  With that being said, come by anytime and see our inventory.  At  least make us an option!

Hope to do business with you soon.  Until then, make it a Recreational Day!”

Our Founder is Fenner G. Hart Jr. For a little history, check out this interview from 1977.
