Billiards Table Sizes: Choose the Size to Match Skills and Preference

Regarding table dimensions, snooker tables are generally 12 x 6 feet long, while pool and billiard tables measure between 7 to 9 feet in length, and 3.5 to 5 feet in width. There are more variations in sizes especially on tables for home use, which may even be customized according to individual preferences. Generally, however, snooker tables have larger dimensions because the game needs more space to accommodate a bigger number of balls. To make the matter of table sizes even more confusing, there is also English pool, which is played the same as American pool, only on comparatively smaller-sized tables.
