I have been over in Derby this week working on a few tables in the Cueball club .
Danny has got hold of some second hand Riley cushions that are much better than the current cushions on some of the tables woodwork wise and bounce wise
so we have been stripping down the old tables and improving them by means of a re-cover in match cloth and these upgrade of cushions.
The first table to receive cushion upgrading and brand new Hainsworth Match Cloth
Second table stripped down and ready for new bed cloth
The second table finished new Hainsworth Match cloth fitted , and better Riley cushions with silver slide in panels on this set
A new set of nets and leathers where also required for this table .
Ongoing improvements are being carried out to the tables at the Cue Ball Derby during the summer by GCL Billiards .
We have another table to do tomorrow and another three sets of Riley cushions to fit to other tables throughout the club before the Winter league starts up
Cue Ball Derby are not standings still or stagnating , they are improving the tables as a long term investment , nobody likes to play on slow none responsive cushions and bed cloths
So Danny has invested in a roll of Hainsworth Match Cloth which is a thin fast cloth , much thinner and faster than the normal 30 oz that you see in most clubs
Although this Match cloth on all tables is costing the Club more money ,it is all part of the plan to give the Cue Ball Clients the best possible playing conditions
most clubs have the standard cloth fitted to most of the tables with just Match cloth fitted to a couple of match tables , the Cue ball Derby wanted to offer their clients the best on every table and still charge the standard rate for normal thickness cloth !
the Air Con which had been off line for a few days has also been fixed and I must say it was most welcome when I was fitting the cloth .
so if you fancy a game of snooker in an air conditioned club this summer playing on top class cloth and cushions visit The Cue Ball Derby

The Cueball Derby also have a superb Pool hall , where the tables are well used and maintained to a high standard .
