Before you buy a pool table or snooker table it is important to make sure you have enough room to play properly. The table below shows you the minimum room size to play with a full size (57") cue on your pool table or snooker table. The room sizes below allow an additional 3" (approx.) around a pool table or snooker table when playing with a full size cue.

If you aren't quite sure about the correct size, it's a good idea to mark out the pool table on the floor to see exactly how much space you have around the edges. If you have a pool cue or snooker cue handy you can mock up some shots and see if anything gets broken as well! If you have any questions regarding using smaller cues, please give Customer Services a call.
