Billiard Table Felt Cloth Options

Billiard Table Felt Cloth Options

I wanted to start this billiard equipment article off by saying that felt is not the proper term. Unless of course you buy a $200 table from Wal-Mart that actually has felt on it. The proper generic term is cloth, since on a real billiard or snooker table, you won't find any real felt. I'm using the term here so that people searching for the term billiard table felt will find this article and will be corrected.

They are composed of various materials which are combined together in a very calculated way to create a good-quality table. One of the important materials used on the billiard table is the billiard table felt, which is the common name for the cloth that covers the surface of the table.

Once the wooden framing of the billiard table is smoothed out, the billiard table fabric is applied to the surface of the framing. This felt fabric provides a smooth and consistently even surface for the balls to roll across easily.
