How Much Space Do You Need For A Pool Table?

Pool and snooker tables come in a variety of sizes - from 5ft non-slate pool tables right up to 12ft slate championship snooker tables. With that said, 7ft tables generally are the most common in the home environment because the game is challenging enough to keep you interested but not too challenging that you cannot pot a ball.Our 7ft pool tables are made in the Uk to a UK specification. This means that they are 2.1m (7ft) long by 1.2m (4ft). For adequate cue-ing space, we suggest that the mini...

How Big Are Your Balls?

Contrary to popular belief, it is not the length of your pool table that denotes what size pool balls you need. Instead, it depends on the size of the pocket aperture - the distance between the two cushions at a corner pocket. Most pool tables are made for 2 inch balls but the only way to be 100% sure, is to either measure your balls with calipers or take an existing ball to your local pool table shop to compare. We can help : FJ North, Almancil, Algarve....

They are a perfectly normal part of play. Read here to find out more....
