Custom printed cloths are available at an extra cost subject to copyright. We can print any logo, image or design onto various cloth colours using a deep dyed printing method which will not deflect the ball and will wear at the same rate as the rest of the cloth. All we require from the customer is a JPG or PDF image. The price of this service will depend on artwork and how many colours go into the image. Whether our custom cloths are fitted onto a new or old pool table the WOW factor is achieved every time.

All pool table recovering work and pool table maintenance is carried out on sight. On arrival our fitter will inspect the pool table to ensure the cushions etc. are in perfect working order prior to carrying out the pool table recovering. Occasionally we come across cushions that are hard or soft and spongy. Going ahead with the pool table recovering at this stage would not be cost effective to the customer. Please check your cushions are responding correctly prior to booking a pool table recovering. Most cushions can be replaced with a new set or we can re-rubber existing cushions. This will result in your pool table performing as new.

Step by step example of a standard pool table recovering:-

Cushions are removed and old cloth stripped ensuring that all old staples are pulled out before recovering; a lot of fitters do not do this.

Any minor repairs to the cushions will be done at this stage i.e. making sure there is not any loose wood and rubbers are glued back to the wood where required. Cushions are then recovered ensuring the correct tension is applied.

The slate is then cleaned and all old glue is scraped away prior to recovering with new cloth which will be stretched to the correct tension. Once in place, the cloth is then trimmed around the pocket areas. The pool table cloth is then marked out.

Maintaining your pool table

All materials, including your new pool table cloth will wear over time so it is important to look after the table. Proper brushing on a regular basis will enhance the quality of the playing conditions as well as the life span. Keep the table covered when not in use to protect the cloth from dust, moisture, direct sunlight etc. as these will all help to shorten the life of your cloth.

Brushing the table following a pool table recover

  • Do not place drinks around the edge of the table
  • Do not flick coins on the table as this will cause nicks to appear in the cloth.
  • Sitting on the table will eventually damage the cushions
