What’s the Best Size Pool Table to Have?

Pool Table Size vs Your Room Size…

Most people who are toying with idea of purchasing a pool table are unaware of the space requirements needed to comfortably play the game of billiards. Additionally, some folks don’t ever realize that a slate pool table can be purchased in many different sizes. For example, let’s say your would be gameroom is 11.5 feet by 14.5 feet. You’d never want to try and squeeze an eight foot pool table into that space. But you could definitely fit a seven footer in a room this size, with the use of some shorter length cuesticks. What’s that you say? You didn’t know there was such a thing as a “shorty” cue? We actually have custom sized cuesticks ranging in size from 36 inches all the way up to a standard size cue at 58 inches. Speaking of sizes, that brings me to my next subject. Pool table sizes. Yes. We can actually customize a slate pool table too.

We offer American made pool tables by Connelly Billiards in sizes ranging from 3 by 6 foot all the way up to a mammoth 5 by 10 foot. So you see, it’s all about your room size and/or your tolerance for using a shorter cuestick. The two best things you can do for yourself are knowing the sizes of the “playfield” of the pool table and the size of your room.
