Recommended pool table room sizes based on pool table dimensions
If you’re thinking about buying a pool table or if you already have one in pieces and are looking for a professional team of pool table movers to take care of the service, feel free to give us a call to get a quote and schedule your appointment.
We recommend you measure the dimensions of the room where you want it setup. This should be done so that we can ensure adequate gameplay. We have listed the approximate pool table room sizes to help you out when buying a table or deciding which room to have it installed considering you use a standard 58” cue stick.
Another thing you have to consider is the furniture you already have in the room or furniture you plan to put in the game room in the near future. This is very important because you need to have enough room to actually play the game.
Also when the pool table setup is already complete and you happen to need the table moved even for just a few inches, the table will have to be taken apart to properly relocate it.
Many people don’t consider this very important question when purchasing a pool table for their home, will it fit in the room? This plus the furniture that you already have in the room or that you plan on adding to the room is of extreme importance since it affects the size of the pool table you can get so that you enjoy a good playing experience.
We have a highly experienced team of pool table movers that have been taking care of pool table moves, installations and repairs for quite a few years, so we can definitely help you verify if the pool table you’re interested in will fit in the room, please measure the room dimensions, you may also use the chart we have put together for your convenience.
The dimensions of your game room will determine the size of the pool table you can purchase so that you can enjoy a comfortable playing experience. If you’re interested in a used pool table be sure to ask the seller for the pool table dimensions, specifically the playing surface area, this is the true size of the pool table and it helps to figure out the appropriate pool table room size and also the right cut of pool table cloth to properly take care of the pool table refelting during assembly.
Why it’s important to know the pool table sizes and game room dimensions?
If the pool table turns out to be a different size this could really complicate the job for the pool table installers because the table may not fit in the room and also the cut of felt may not cover the entire table. In most cases, this will change the price of the service, whether it is a pool table setup, installation or a complete move.
The industry norm is supplied, pre-cut pool table felt for the refelting service. If an 8-foot table is expected to be serviced and we encounter a 9-foot table then we may not even have the correct cloth size to finish your job which could also incur additional trip charges.
Please be aware that sometimes there are minor issues with a used pool table which may go unnoticed and we could find out about it during the move. If the issue is minor we can fix the pool table repair during the same appointment, but if it is something that needs additional materials, we would have to schedule a second appointment. If said repair is minor we may be able to fix it right then if the issued needs other materials that we were not aware of we will have to come back for a second appointment. Pool table room sizes are important for a successful job and it’s super handy to know when checking the pool table size you can get.
