Which size pool table is the right one for your space?
There are a number of factors to consider when deciding which size pool table to order.
- Do you have enough area on all sides of the table to allow for players to comfortably shoot?
- If you are planning to locate your table on a lower level, are there any load bearing supports in that room?
- Is your table primarily going to be used by adults or children?
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 area required for each size table. This takes into consideration enough space around the table to be able to use a standard, two-piece, 58” cue. If your room size is smaller than the dimensions shown, you can choose to use a shorter cue and adjust the required area downward. Using a 52" cue will reduce the required room size by one foot and a 48" cue will reduce it by one and a half feet.
|Table Dimensions||Room Dimensions for 58" Cues|
|7’ x 3’ 6”||12’ 9" x 16’|
|8’ x 4’||13’ 6” x 17'|
|9’ x 4’ 6”||13’ 10” x 17’ 10”|
If you have a load-bearing support beam in your room, it is 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. Shorty cues are perfect for tight spots and are available in 48” and 52” lengths. Consider a 7’ table and 52” cues if children will primarily use your table and space is an issue.
Finally you will want some accessories to complement your new table and 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. 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.
