Measuring an Existing Pool Table

It is important to know the “real” size of an existing pool table. Make sure to check out our How to Measure Your Pool Table page to get this very important number.

Making Room for a Pool Table

Just because a pool table will fit in a room, doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be ample room to play. Our pool table room chart below should help you to plan your gameroom space a little easier. The dimensions below represent an ideal space, but remember if one or more walls in the room are open it can make all the difference. And, if you are short on space, don’t let it deter you. We can almost always find a solution to make your pool table playable. Standard cue sticks are typically 57-58 inches in length. But we can also supply you with cue sticks in shorter, custom sizes too!

What are the measurement of the Catalina table

Hello Angela, the outside dimensions of a pool table are different depending on which size you order. If we’re talking about an 8ft pool table then the outside dimensions are approximately 55 by 99 inches and the interior dimensions are 44 by 88 inches. Best regards, David.

I have a room that is 13 ft 4 inches by 11feet 8 inches would it be enough room for a 7 foot or 6 foot pool table?

Hello Karl, a 7 foot pool table would work although it might be a little tight but short cuesticks would solve the problem. I sell cues ranging in size from 36-52 inch. Thanks for reading my blog, David.

Room is 14′ by 18′ but the long end of the table would need to fit in the 14′. One side of the 18′ is open. Deciding between 6′ and 7′ table – sounds like I may be OK with 7′?

Hi Luc, you’re right a seven foot pool table would fit the best. You would still need to use a 48 inch cuestick for some shots but that’s only if you center the table end to end in the 14 foot section of the room. If you skewed the table more towards the opening along the 18 foot section of wall then you could probably use the table without the need for the shorter cue length I previously mentioned. Happy cueing, David.


Trying to make a formal dining into a game room – dimensions are 12’8×13’0 is this at all possible?

Jennifer, no i would say the room is too square, too small on the length. Pool tables are rectangular and really work best in a room the same shape. Imagine if your pool table was 3 foot by 6 foot you’d want to allow about 42-58 inches of cuestick clearance on all four sides of the pool table for comfortable shooting room. Best, DK.

I have a pool table I brought from Baltimore when I transferred here. I have an outside enclosed outdoor area That where i was thinking about putting the table moved too. I’m not sure that with this heat that’s a good idea. What do you guys think?

James, I,ve had many clients setup pool tables that were not true “outdoor” pool tables outside under a covered patio without any trouble. I’d order an outdoor cover to protect against dust from setting into the felt and to stop sunlight from damaging the playing surface and/or fading the finish. Best, David.

Could you please tell me the measurement from the floor to the top of the covered Peyton pool/dining room table? Also what is the measurement from the floor to the base of the table? Thank You

Christy, I am not at my shop to measure the Peyton pool/dining table but if memory serves correctly the height with tops on is around 33 inches and the the measurement from floor to bottom of frame is about 26 inches.
Hope this helps, PTK.

Good Evening. We have a room (length 24′ width 11′). One side of the room has an 8 ft opening where the center of the table would be. I’m dying to try for a 9′ table but really could use some advice. Thank you.

Hello Shawn, a nine foot pool table would be very tight in that space you’ve described. If you centered the table on the 8 foot opening you’d only leave yourself 36 inches of space between the side rails and wall. If i were you i’d consider putting a seven foot “bar size” pool table in this are. You could possibly squeeze an eight footer but even that may be too tight for some folks.
Best regards, PTK.

Greetings, thanks for all of your hard work and answering questions here! I do have a question/concern, which is redundant as I’ve seen it asked a bit. I have a room that’s 11’2 by 20ft. I am fine with a bar size 7ft table, my concern is cue length. I normally play with a 58″ cue, would I need to use a 52 on the sides I am guessing? I don’t own the table yet.. Thanks for any suggestions or comments in regards to ‘don’t do it’ etc.. 😀

You’d need a 48″ for the width for a cue ball resting on or near a cushion. You could stick with a full length for the majority of shots.
