The Ultimate Recreational Game: The Classic Pool Table

Yes, and interestingly It’s not just about the ratio   of pool table to room size.

Notice, You have to use the long 58 “pool cue   to take your shots.  So   you need enough space around the pool table Maneuver the cue,   effectively manage the backhand strike and score a winning   shot.

How can you take all of these considerations into account while   deciding on the size of the pool table for your room?

The rule of thumb – leave   approximately 64 “(5′-4”) on all sides of the pool table for a comfortable   playing field.  This gives you ample   freedom of movement while you take a shot.    For example, if you wanted to buy a standard 7 “(84”) wide   by 42 “wide pool table, your play area would be 12 ¼” (148 “)   x 8 ¾” (106 “) x 12 ¼” (148 “) x 8 ¾ ‘. Add the optimal   floor space for the pool cue rack, the seating arrangement and the room to   move around.

The math is getting a little overwhelming, isn’t it?   For this reason we have simplified it for you in the following   statement.
