History of the Round Pool Table

POOL-TABLES and accessoriesIn 1968, while on duty for the United States Marine Corp., Jim Meyers and Jack Mattson inspected a circular assembly jig in Long Beach at the McDonnell-Douglas Company. The jig was painted green, like all others, and would quickly become the source of a 30-year-long family legacy, transforming both Jim and Jack into billiard visionaries. Sketches were made and materials were purchased as their garage in Garden Grove rapidly transformed into a small shop. Within a matter of time the world’s first round billiard table was born.

 Patents were acquired and the pool table was ready to hit the road, debuting on the Steve Allen television show in 1970, followed by the show What’s My Line? several years later. The Los Angeles Times, CBS, Popular Mechanics, and many more soon also wanted a piece of the pie. The original table was 8’ in diameter, with pockets set an inch back from conventional specifications and was constructed on a piece of cloth-covered plywood and masonite.

 The JM Billiard Company is proud to introduce the round pooltable. Applying WPA (World Pool Association) specifications wherever possible, trying not to make the round pool table any different other than the shape, so that playing on it can be adapted to easily.
