American pool is played on a large table, with larger balls and wider pockets. The surface cloth is made of felt which has no nap meaning that it is smooth compared with a British table surface. This applies less drag on the ball so they do not slow as easily as they would on a British table.
American Pool is fun and fast paced requiring a good measure of strength and precision to get ahead. Equal in popularity to the British game; many in the UK have come to love this style of table.
