FITTING NEW CLOTH

In the home environment your original cloth is likely to last for many years. In a busy snooker club the cloth may need to be changed annually or even more often.Fitting new cloth takes place on site.

Re-covering by an Alcock fitter includes:

  • removing the existing cloth from the bed and cushions of the table
  • cleaning the slate bed of the table and checking for damage
  • checking the wooden cushion slips, if present, and replacing as required
  • covering the cushions in new cloth
  • repairing minor damage to the slate bed of the table if required
  • checking the pockets of the table and advising about necessary replacements
  • fitting new cloth to the bed of the table; brushing ironing and marking and spotting the cloth
  • re-assembling the table ready for play; checking and adjusting the table level as required.
