Donating Your Pool Table

If you have an underused pool table in your home, consider donating it to a local youth organization. This 8′ ABC found a new home at the YMCA after school club in Mission Viejo, California. We were able to move this ten your old pool table from a nearby home and reassemble using the existing standard blue cloth. After finishing homework, students will now be able to enjoy learning the game and having fun with their friends.

Donating your pool table is a great way to give back to the community and can likely be a deduction on your taxes. If you are interested in giving your pool table away, please remember to ask the following:

  • Does the organization have ample space for the pool table size you are giving? 8′ pool tables need 13’3″ x 16’10” of clear space to play with a standard length cue stick.
  • Speaking of size, do you have exact dimensions of your billiard table? Measuring the playing field is best and will allow you to get an accurate quote for moving.
  • Who will be paying for the move? A pool table cannot be picked up in one big piece and hauled away. Proper moving techniques by professional pool table movers with insurance needs to be budgeted for. Most organizations need help with these costs.
  • Is your table in good working condition? Just because your pool table looks great on the outside, doesn’t necessarily mean it is ready for heavy use. What is the condition of the felt? If the table hasn’t been used in many years, it may need new cushion rubber for balls to bounce properly. Leather pockets age and dry out. After many years of non-use, pocketing balls may cause weak straps to break. These costs can add up quickly.
  • Are you really sure you want to get rid of your pool table? Remember, a pool table can be safely dismantled and stored indefinitely until you are ready to use it again.

We love seeing the joy on the faces of clubs benefiting from donation. Check around to see which groups in your neighborhood would like the opportunity to accept a gently used pool table.

Do you know of any charities/organizations that need a pool table? I have one that I need to donate.

Not off hand. You will have to research your local area. Start with friends and family first, asking if they know a charitable organization in need. Good luck!

I have a Olhausen 4×8 table I would line to donate of give away. Let me know if anyone is interested.

I’m thinking that a pool table that age will need much restoration. Components such as the cushion rubber, leather nets and felt will most likely need replacing. If you have had these parts serviced recently then a donated pool table would be a welcomed asset to a Boy’s and Girl’s Club, Youth/Teen Center or Sober Living Facility in Your area.
Happy hunting, PTK.

I have a pool table in great shape that I would like to donate. Solid oak, blue felt. I’d have to measure but pretty sure it is a standard 8′ table. How do I find a place to donate?

Linda, I think you may find a home for your used pool table by reaching out to friends, family or coworkers. See if your local Boys and Girls club is in need of a donated pool table. You could also try Church Youth Groups or Sober Living Homes in your area. Another organization you can reach out to is called Olive Crest. Good luck, David.

I have a full size pool table that is in very good condition. I would like to donate it to a good home. How do I go about finding an individual or organization that could put it to good use.

Lynn, I always tell folks who are seeking to donate a pool table to check with Boy’s and Girl’s clubs in the local area or Church Youth Groups or even Sober Living Facilities.
Good Luck, David.
