Cloth Repair Questions


Cloth Repair Questions

Hey guys, made a big blunder where some drunk friends decided to play hockey on the pool table while my parents were away.

Now i need to get the scratches out of the felt asap.

I've been told i may have to replace the felt?

Is there any ways of removing scratches from the felt? Or will i need to replace the felt.

Are there any mobile pool table felt changing business in the Brisbane area? (Australia)

    Wow, that really sucks. Did the pool table cloth actually get torn, or are the marks just white marks?

    Also, how large is the tear/rip/scratch in the cloth? Can you upload a picture so we know what we're dealing with?

    Sounds like to me that someone has too much time on his hands. Both of those messages have a slight odor to them.

    They are just white marks on table, no tears at all. Just subtle scratches which you can see under lighting. And the room is surround by windows so when the sun comes in, the scratches can be seen.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, i really dont have the cash to replace the felt atm. So if there was anyway of getting rid of the white scratches, or at least making them more subtle would be great. Thanks. Mike

    Well Mike, the good news is that those white marks, "burn marks", are a normal part of typical wear and tear on a pool table's cloth. Here are a few articles you may want to check out:

    The marks are essentially caused by the friction generated when balls are struck. Hope this helps explain things to the folks.
