Pool Table Room Sizes
‘How big does my room need to be to fit my pool table?’
Most people who purchase pool tables take into consideration the size of the room where they are planning to place the pool table in. Although I would recommend serious players to buy a 9 foot table, most homes does not have enough space inside to be able to play comfortably with a 9 foot table.
Most of the room size charts tend to underestimate the amount of room you need to play comfortably and effectively.
HERE is my personal recommendation:
You must allow for the length of the cue stick AND an extra 6 inches (at least) for a comfortable stroke.
Add this number to the width and length of your tables’ playing area.
The tables’ playing area is measured from from the inside edge of the cushion to the opposite inside edge of the cushion. An illustration of what a “playing area” is is shown below. The line with the caption “B” is the width and the line with caption “A” is the height of the playing area.
