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 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.

Which Size Do I Need?

Table Dimensions Room Dimensions for 58" Cues
7’ x 3’ 6” 12’ 9" x 16’
8’ x 4’ 13’ 2” x 16’ 10”
9’ x 4’ 6” 13’ 8” x 17’ 10”

Room Size/Cue Length

If the room size is smaller than the dimensions shown and the playing area around the table seems cramped, keep in mind you can always use shorter cues. 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.

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.
