Maintaining your snooker table

Snooker table cloth will wear over time. To enable your cloth to last as long as possible it is important you keep up the maintenance of your snooker table. Regular brushing and ironing will prolong the life of your cloth as well as keeping it covered by a heat reflective material when not in use as moisture, dust and direct contact with sunlight will shorten the life of your snooker table cloth.

Do not

  • Flick coins on the cloth

  • Leave drinks or food on the table

  • Sit on the table as this will damage the cushions
