Billiard Table / Pool Table Room Sizes in imperial & metric measurements.

Pool tables come in a range of sizes with the more common sizes being:

6′ X 3′         – Pub size pool table.
7′ X 3′ 6”  – League competition size pool table.
8′ X 4′        – A medium size pool table.
9′ X 4′ 6” – Standard American 9 ball / French 9 ball table size.
10′ X 5′      – A less common larger size pool table.
12′ X 6′      – Full size competition / tournament pool table.

The ideal size for a pool table room should be at least 1.5mt (5′) larger than each side of the pool table.

The minimum size for a pool table room should be at least 1.2mt (4′) larger then each of the sides of the pool table.

Please note: Metric measurement have been converted from imperial measurements and are approximate.

If your pool table room size is smaller than ideal or minimum pool table room sizes, shorter pool cue sticks can be used. When growing up we did have a 6 foot pool table in a 3mt x 4mt room and while some tight corner shots were annoying the game was playable with using a smaller ”corner” pool cue.

Pool cues are available in standard lengths of 91 cm (36”) often referred to as a corner cue, 106cm (42”), 122cm (48”), 145cm (57”) commonly referred to as the standard length pool cue stick, and 152cm (60”).

TIP: Never leave pool cues or pool balls set up on your pool table.
Leaving pool cues and balls on the table could indent the pool table cloth.

Always store pool cues and pol ball sets in racks or cases, never leave them leaning against a wall. Pool balls should be stored in their original boxes or pool ball cases this keeps all the balls together and also helps keep the ball set clean and dust free.
