Pool Table Sizes
Always consider whether you have enough space in your entertainment room for a pool table. Those who have played on somebody else's pool table may know what it’s like to play pool on
a table where there’s just not enough room. Players struggle to use cue sticks when your pool table is crammed into a tight space. When they try to make their desired shot, they risk
damaging a wall and accidentally tapping their ball. Those issues are avoidable when you have the right size pool table for your space.
As a rule of thumb, you'll have enough room for a pool table if you take the table's dimensions and add around 64 inches to each side of the table. A typical cue stick length is 58
inches long, so those extra 6 inches give players enough space to use their cue stick without hitting a wall or another player.
Having the right size pool table for your game room is essential. While a regulation table for tournaments is around nine feet long, smaller tables are built to be roughly six to
seven feet in length. Although they are not fully regulation size, these tables are becoming increasingly popular in entertainment rooms. If table size is not a factor stopping you from
using your cue stick, there’s no need to stress. Using a smaller pool table to practice shouldn't be an issue if you play with local teams. Other local team pool players are likely using
a compact table as well.
Pool Table Beds
After finding the right size table, the next step is to consider the best material for your entertainment space.
Slate Pool Tables
Tables that are made from slate provide the highest quality of gameplay. Slate pool tables are built from high-quality stone, so the surface will never warp. Table warp creates an
uneven playing surface, which can unintentionally cause the path of moving pool balls to curve. Fortunately, slate pool tables will last for years with virtually zero warp. They are a
perfect long-term investment for your game room.
Medium-Density Fiberboard Pool Tables
Medium-density fiberboard tables are lightweight but still resist warping. Medium-density fiberboard pool tables are much more affordable compared to slate tables. These pool tables
can be easily moved around the entertainment room, making them a great alternative to high-end pool tables.
Pool Table Pockets
Pool table pockets can come in different varieties, depending on your purchase. Compact tables typically come with drop pockets, whereas larger tables have an integrated return system
for every pocket. A ball return system is excellent for those who play many games consecutively because the balls all go into a single feeding system. Drop pockets can be better for
those that like to keep track of who made which ball in each pocket.
