Press Releases



It is with great pleasure to announce that the WEPF will continue their long term sponsorship with Strachan and the World Championships for 2020 will now be playing on the new Strachan Superfine Grey cloth.

Strachan Superfine with AntikickTM technology gives you the speed, consistency and control only before experienced by the professionals. The new Strachan Superfine is a genuine innovation. It offers the club or home player the chance to replicate conditions only before experienced by the professional players. It is a light weight but durable, 100% wool, napped cloth that replicates the speed, control and consistency of the Championship No. 10 cloth used for all ranking pro tournaments since 1980, including the World Championships at Sheffield.

The Strachan Superfine is available in 160cm and 193cm and was developed with our partners in snooker and English pool.

For snooker the new Strachan Superfine cloth has been selected by the International Billiards and Snooker Federation (IBSF) for all of its tournaments in 2019 onwards including the IBSF World Championships.

In English pool, the WEPF Sponsorship and Marketing Director, Lee Kendall commented: “I strongly believe this cloth will be the future. The general feel, the responsiveness and the quickness put the cloth ahead of any other. Along with the amazing aesthetically looking silver colour giving English 8 ball the unique and distinctive look it as always needed”.

Stuart Gardiner, UK & Ireland Sales Manager for Strachan added: “Today’s players want speed from their cloth but not at the expense of control and response. Other manufacturers make quick cloth but the Superfine, by Strachan, is the only cloth that is fast, whilst offering tournament levels of control. The players are saying that it’s the best napped cloth that they have ever played on”.

Strachan Superfine snooker and pool cloth has AntikickTM technology which has almost eliminated the kick from the professional game and the pool version is treated with SpillGuardTM to protect your investment from accidental drink spillage.

We would personally like to thank Stuart for his hard work over the years and to also thank him for believing in the vision of the WEPF.
