The Best Pool Table Cloth: What Is So Great About Tournament Blue?

Tournament blue is the featured color from our table felt options. It is the “most common” cloth in the world, and there are a few reasons why.

1. Easy On the Eyes

Well, I guess it is attractive too, but what we mean by this is that this color blue is one that will not cause a large amount of strain on the eyes after long periods of playing on the table.

2. Simonis Brand

We mentioned already this color is from the brand Simonis. Most pool players who hear the name Simonis already associate it with the top of the top. But for those who don’t know about the brand, Simonis Cloth starts with very fine combed wool yarn. This long-fiber wool is then tightly-twisted and woven into cloth. Then it is specially sheared perfectly flat and finely finished in a tradition of craftmanship from the mill in Verviers, Belgium pioneered and has refined for over 3 centuries. The result is a beautiful precision cloth that achieves the smoothest, most accurate and most consistent play surface available

3. Calming

The blue color is synonymous with calm, relaxation, peaceful and perseverance.

4. Made for Performance

Lastly, and most important, this color is specifically designed for maximum contrast; making it easier to see the balls therefore making your shots more accurate.
