Everything you need to know about the correct maintenance of the billiard table
Billiard tables are a high-priced investment, so long-term maintenance through proper care is all the more important. The basic equipment of the table, for example, includes a brush. This frees the billiard cloth from chalk and other residues. It makes sense to use the brush after each game played in order to keep the billiard cloth clean and to offer subsequent billiard players optimal conditions. Furthermore, of course, a cover plate or a drape, depending on the space required, helps to keep the table clean from dust and other impurities.
What do buyers look for in a billiard table?
The good responsiveness of the boards is important at the billiard table and pool table. These consist of a rubber and ensure that the ball bounces back to the center of the table at high speed after hitting it. Buyers look for high-quality solid rubber bands made of natural rubber.
The slab of slate plays a crucial role in the course of the ball. Thick plates are heavier and place higher demands on transport, but they also ensure that the balls run smoothly and straight. Good sheets start with a thickness of around 25 mm.
Where do billiard players keep the billiard balls?
The easiest way to store the balls and other billiard accessories, such as billiard cues, is directly on the table top. Some models have a silent automatic ball return. The table collects the balls at the bottom on the front. This is great for storing them even after the game. Otherwise, the triangle made of wood or plastic is also useful for tidy storage of the balls.
