Allow For Cue-ing Space
Pool and snooker tables come in a variety of sizes - from 5ft non-slate pool tables right up to 12ft slate championship snooker tables. With that said, 7ft tables generally are the most common in the home environment because the game is challenging enough to keep you interested but not too challenging that you cannot pot a ball.
Our 7ft slate bed pool tables are made in the UK to a UK specification. This means that they are 2.1m (7ft) long by 1.2m (4ft).
When deciding on a pool table, always be aware that you need to allow for cuei-ing space all around the table. For our tables, we suggest that the minimum space is 4.6m x 3.5m. This assumes that you are using 1.2m cues. If you have more space, up to 5.2m x 4.1m, then you might want to choose longer 1.45m cues.
Don't worry too much if you are a little short on space - we can always supply an undersized cue for that tricky corner and, if we are doing the installation, then we always bring a wide selection so we can make the best decision for you and your room......
