      I would have thought that but for three reasons. The other lad that does the tables doesn't leave the big strip down the middle. The cloths less than a year old and the lights are leds so shouldn't have the heat to bleach out a cloth. I played on the table on Sunday it was like Wembley , it genuinely looked like it had been ironed both ways the striping was that bad, it really put you off looking down the table and seeing eight different stripes ( or however many times an iron fits across the table) which all appeared to be a different colour lol, don't know how he did it but hats off to him in a way.

            A table should be kept covered when not in use.

              and the lights off when not required, for environmental reasons as well as those for the pocket

              Unless they played snooker 24x7?

                I do not think the owner was too bothered about electricity bills , the house was sold for £5.5 million with very large outdoor heated swimming pool , I cannot divulge who has bought the house and did not require the table but he is a professional footballer and plays for a London club , the present owner was a very successful businessman with a string of race horses so again not too bothered about price of electricity bill .
                I think he liked to just look at the balls set up on the table appearance than look at a dust covered table .

                The electric system was such that a computer controlled everything and if a bulb went it disrupted every thing in the house , for example the caretaker estate manger informed me it costs £200 to send for an electrician to replace a blown bulb and reset the PC .
                so very time bulb blows it costs £200 .
                hence why I left the lights there .
