Our Cloth Options
Pool table cloth is a very important part of a pool table. It affects the look, the feel, the performance, the durability and the enjoyment you’ll get out of your table. We offer several cloth options on our tables. What are the pros and cons of each, and is it worth it to upgrade?
Championship Saturn, Our Standard Cloth
Standard cloth is included with any table we sell, and is intended for recreational play. Over time pilling will occur, and the cloth is susceptible to spills and stains. Standard cloth will need occasional brushing to remove the fuzz/loose fibers.
Worried About Spills and Stains? Get Championship Invitational With Teflon™ Cloth
The next step up is cloth that is soaked in Teflon™ solution that makes it resistant to spills and stains. If a spill does occur, the liquid beads up, so it’s much easier to clean up. While the cloth resists spills soaking in, it’s still a good idea to blot or absorb spills when you notice them. If you let them sit overnight, there might be some absorption.
This cloth also needs regular brushing maintenance to remove fuzz/loose fibers. There are companies that spray their cloth with a Teflon spray. This type of application only treats the surface of the cloth. When the cloth gets stretched and attached to the bed of the table, it‘s possible that the coating will not be evenly dispersed, leading to uneven play. Since our cloth is soaked in Teflon ™ solution, the protection goes all the way through.
