Attempts to move it yourself can harm the slate, aprons and rails, not to mention yourself and could void your warranties.

Q. How do I take care of the cloth on my table?

Vacuum or brush your cloth as needed. Brush dust from the head toward the foot end of the table. Always brush with straight strokes, not in a scrubbing or circular motion. Brush under the cushion overhang. Brush as often as necessary to maintain the table in good playing condition. Use a hand vacuum or the soft brush upholstery attachment of your vacuum cleaner to pick up the dust and dirt from table brushing. Under normal play and care, cloth can last years.

Q. Do I need a cover for my table?

Your table should be covered when not in use. This will keep the table dust-free, as well as protecting it from accidental damage, or possible damage from exposure to direct sunlight. We offer a variety of Table covers in different colors, please see our Supplies & Equipment & Lights section.

Q. What forms of payments do you accept?
