Pool Table Room Size

When figuring out how much space you need for your pool table, begin with measuring the inside playing surface.  A 9’ regulation size pool table is going to require more room size than a bar size 7’.  A good rule of thumb is to have at least 4’-5’ space between your pool table and walls.


Table size:

7’ Foot Pool Table – 38”x76” playing area (7’x3.5’ Table Size)

8’ Foot Pool Table – 88”x44” playing area (8’x4’ Table Size)

9’ Foot Pool Table – 50”x100” playing (9’x4.5’ Table Size)


Now that the size of your table has been determined, it’s time to figure out the minimum room dimensions needed.  Given that the standard pool cue used is 58” long, you should have close to 5 feet of space on all sides.  Here is a basic reference, but a lot depends on how much space you are willing to sacrifice and which size cues you’re using.


Room size needed for a:

7’ Foot Pool Table – 13’ 6” x 16’ 8”

8’ Foot Pool Table – 13’11” x 17’ 4”

9’ Foot Pool Table – 14’ 6” x 18’ 4”


Please note that if you use a shorter cue you will be able to use a smaller space.
