How to determine the size of a pool table
Many customers contact us saying our pool table is 5’x 9′ and after discussing with them there is no such size as that are confused.
Here is a simple guide to determine the size of your pool table.
Measure the inside playing area of the pool table. That means from the inside rubber of the table straight down not under the rail to the other size. The length is always 2x the width of the pool table. Knowing that fact also helps you in determining your angles when playing pool. The table is actually two perfect squares
You cannot measure the outside of the table as designs whether modern or antique have rails today 5″to 10 “in width.
Sorry for you that measure in metric pool tables are always measured in inches.
Typical pool table sizes are:
7′ — 38″ x 76″
8′ — 44″ x 88″-most common
Pro 8′ — 46″ x 92″ -usually commercial or antique tables-also dufferin billiards
9′ — 50″ x 100″
Snooker tables usually come in a 5 x 10 or 6 x 12 however they can come in smaller sizes and the pocket determines whether pool or snooker.
