Pool tables felt colors including “orange”, “red”, and “purple” are gaining popularity for homeowners, and black-felt pool tables are available upon request.

Pool Table Felt Quality

Pool table felt quality is a worthy consideration, regardless of the amount of play that you expect for your pool table.

Standard Pool Table Felt

Standard pool table felt grades will provide a good all-around experience for any home pool table.

A pool table with standard-grade felt can be identified the appearance of a slight nap, or fuzz, on the surface of the cloth.

The fuzz on standard-grade felt will technically slow down a ball’s travel on the table.

Upgrade to premium pool table cloth if you want the fastest possible ball travel.

Premium Pool Table Felt

Premium pool table felts are designed to provide the best playing experience for any pool table.

A pool table with premium felt can be identified by its uniform, bump-free surface.

The uniform surface is a property of worsted wools that are used to manufacture premium pool table felts.

Billiards Direct offers premium, worsted-wool pool table cloth options by Simonas and Predator.
