You may have noticed that our members have started to use a piece of paper under the cue ball during a break shot. This is a trick we learned from the Green Valley club who have saved a lot of wear on their cloth by using break sheets. We are accumulating marks on the cloth of our tables. The downward force on the cue ball compresses the cloth at the point of impact causing a dent. The ball doesn’t spin at first so it skids along the cloth creating a streak. The cloth is pretty sturdy but the ball actually removes some of the dye.
Let’s all get in the habit of using the break sheets provided in the billiards room so we can extend the life and beauty of our tables.
Thank you for your cooperation.
