What is the room size needed for my pool table?

It is important to buy the right size Pool Table to fit in your room. Making sure you have enough cueing room around your pool table is an essential.

Generally we suggest allowing 1.5 metres of cueing room around each side of your table. We have a chart below that will help guide you further but if you really want the correct answer we can measure your room so you have a great playing experience.

Pool tables come in a range of sizes:

6ft x 3ft - often referred to as pub pool tables

7ft x 31/2ft – Pool table leagues.

8ft x 4ft – American Pool Table size

9ft x 41/2 ft - Full sized American Pool Table.

10ft x 5ft Pool Table

12ft x 6ft- full tournament sized tables available in Pool tables and Snooker Tables.

The standard cue size is 48" and most pool tables come with this size cues, but off course there is a range of longer or shorter cues if needed, custom made cues and shorter half length cues.

 The best way to explain how much cueing room you're going to need around your pool table is to find the middle of the space you are intending to use and go out by the shape of the pool table you think will fit. (you can put 4 objects down to make the shape) then go another 1.5 metres from each object that shapes your pool table size. We can assist in measuring up the correct room size to match the Pool table.
