  1. The billiard is a table which surface is rectangular, completely smooth and horizontal.
  2. The billiard table consists of slate with a minimum thickness of 45 mm or of any other material approved by the UMB committee.
  3. The demarcation of the playing surface is effected by setting up rubber cushions of 37 mm in height at the frontmost point of the cushion. An allowance of plus or minus 1 mm is admitted.
  4. The size of the free playing surface is 2.84 m in length and 1.42 m in width. An allowance of plus or minus 5 mm is admitted.
  5. The rubber cushions are fastened to the entire length of an external frame of 12.5 cm in width which surface is entirely smooth and of a homogeneous colour. An allowance of plus or minus 1 cm is admitted. Exclusively a quality concerning the cushions which is recognized and authorized by the UMB committee can be used.
  6. The surface which reframes the cushions will have indelible marks fixed at regular distance corresponding with 1/8 of the length of the playing surface. Neither the mark of the producer nor any other indication will be allowed to be fastened to the surface of this frame reframing the cushions.
  7. The cloth which covers the billiard must be new and must have a quality and colour which is admitted by the UMB committee. The required details are published by the committee at the end of chapter I of the world organization rules. The cloth will have to cover at most the slate and the cushions. Exclusively a quality of cloth which is recognized and authorized by the UMB committee can be used.

This heater with a thermostat will be switched on since the set up of the billiards and during the whole competition in order to ensure the best possible rolling.
