Pool Table Room Dimensions

This chart is a good guide for the minimum space requirements for the most common pool tables. Standard cue length is 57", but smaller cues can be used for rooms or walls that may not have the necessary space requirements. We recommend, when possible, to stay with a 52" or 58" cue for the greatest enjoyment. Children should use smaller cues for easier handling, and a "Kiddy Cue" is great for teaching children while minimizing the possibility of damaging your table.
