Snooker Table Size and Measurements

Written by cuesports. Posted in World Snooker

When purchasing a snooker or pool table it is most important to check the size of the room. For general guidance approximately 5 foot of room space is required on all four sides of the table for maximum playing enjoyment. This recognises that standard United Kingdom manufactured snooker and pool cues are made to 57” and 58” inches in length.
