What Table Size is Right for My Room?

We offer three sizes of pool tables so you can best customize your table to your space.
The chart below gives you an idea of the minimum area required for each size table. Keep in mind that you need room for the table AND room for the cue length during play. If your desired table size doesn't quite fit, you can always play with shorter cues. We've provided specs for different cue lengths.

When in doubt, get a smaller table. It's better to have a bigger room with a smaller table, than a smaller room with a bigger table that cramps your playing style.

Placement of Table Around Load-bearing Supports

If you have a load-bearing support pole/column in your room, it’s best to try and locate it at the side of the table rather than at the end. If you have to locate it at an end, it is best to situate the table so that the pole is at the break end (vs. the foot or rack end) of your table.

Cues and Tables for Kids

Consider a 7’ table and 52” or 48” cues if children will primarily use your table.

Don't Forget the Accessories

You'll want some accessories to complement your new table and to provide attractive storage for spare cues and balls. We offer both free standing and wall-mounted racks, in addition to scorekeepers and scorer rack combinations.

Look Forward to Fun!

Whether shooting around on your own, with the family, or hosting a night of pool with your friends, your new pool table will provide hours of fun for years to come.
