So you just purchased a pool table?
Great! Congratulations on your purchase. The next step is to put measures in place to protect your investment because pool tables are very expensive.
In this case , you can choose to be reactive or proactive.
You can be reactive by doing nothing , folding your arms and waiting for the table to get damaged before making a move OR you can be proactive by putting measures in place to protect the table.
For me , i like to be proactive especially when it comes to expensive investments like my best pool tables , and this is why i go the extra mile to purchase quality table covers for them.
