Pool and Snooker Cloth Care

Click the above image for full cloth care instructions

Our top tip: Keep it covered- keep it clean! Make sure pool cue tips are in good condition.

A napped pool cloth will last a lot longer if treated correctly. The nap of the cloth is not vertical but slanted away from the baulk line. This gives the ball speed control in that it will run faster down the table than back toward the baulkline. If the cloth is repeatedly brushed backwards it will raise the nap and ruin the cloth, sometimes this can be remedied by ironing or blocking but is not always successfull. Always brush your table cloth as diagram above (if the nap raises the cloth hasnt been fitted correctly)

There are 2 types of cloth used on pool tables

WORSTED: napped/directional cloth (used on UK pool tables and snooker tables)

MELTON: un-napped/non directional. Very fast running , no ball control. Used mainly on US 9 ball tables.

We stock both types in standard colours, green, blue and burgundy red with custom colours available to order.

We stock all common cloth care products. See below

Cloth glue

Dont use an inferior glue on your table! This one grabs fast and holds on! cheap contact adhesives are great when the cloth is put on, but can "let go" when ageing. Not good on a tensioned cloth! how many tables have you seen that have saggy cloth or a bent baulk line?

well worth the extra!! £9 per tin (enough to do approx 3 tables)
