There white dots all over my pool table cloth?

The white dots on the playing surface are friction burns when the balls strike each other. This friction travels through the balls and into the cloth. Also from the tip of the cue hit the table from follow after a ball has been hit. You can minimize this by using a higher grade of pool balls made of phenolic resin rather than the cheaper acrylic balls.
