I assumed that was the case. But I would be on a replica of the match table as soon as it was announced. I'll bet the Europeans are doing so.That was taken in some poolroom not an Matchroom location. I would guess there are tournament practice tables at the venue. In Vegas they had tournament tables in practice area.
MR has been using their own design for a couple yrs now. Its the Black Tournament set. They are hideous. https://matchroompool.com/news/matchroom-pool-saluc-launch-tournament-black-ball-set/Where did you find a picture / description of the Mosconi Cup balls for this year?
I doubt those things are just anywhere in London. Don't know when they get access to to the venue. They'll have time to hit on one.I assumed that was the case. But I would be on a replica of the match table as soon as it was announced. I'll bet the Europeans are doing so.
I still don't see why MR has to keep re-inventing the wheel. The balls are a joke and this cloth isn't much better. Standard color balls on tournament blue cloth is ideal for hd streams. Emily just has to have something to call her own.No matter what color chalk or cloth color; they are all playing on the same surface. I do not believe it will matter to them nearly as much as it does to the members here..Hopefully they are more focused on winning than cloth color.. Maybe they will like it!
Thank you Garczar. I looked for it on the MR site but couldn't find it. There isn't a search function on the site. How did you find that link?MR has been using their own design for a couple yrs now.

Yes sir, those pockets are tight, too tight for my 75 year old eyes.What do you think? The ball colors will show up better on TV, but will a white glare from the overhead lights hurt the eyes of the players when shooting on the light-colored cloth?
Of course, the photo by Emily Frazer, Managing Director of Matchroom Multi Sport, was to illustrate the size of the pockets, but us railbirds immediately picked up on the change of cloth color.

I grew up playing in a post-Hustler Brunswick room. All tables(30 GC1's) had gold cloth. Owner liked it cause it didn't show wear and he was cheap as hell. Once his son took over he switched to green. The gold wasn't so bad but it was all i knew til he switched. I like darker colors for contrast.I’ve played lots on gold or camel.....I like it.
