Abstract: front page image
(EN)A circular pool table ( 100) comprises features that provide the player with a sensation of playing on a rectangular pool table. In particular, the circular pool table comprises a circular cushion (104) whose geometry resembles that of the cushion of a rectangular pool table as specified by the Billiard Congress of America and/or World Pool-Billiard Association. The playing surface (1 12), rail (102), and pockets (108) of the circular pool table mimic the features of a corresponding rectangular pool table. In particular, the slate including the cloth, the rail including the sub-rail, and the pockets including the pocket openings are configured so as to further convey the experience of playing on a recreational and/or tournament-qualified rectangular pool table.
