How To Determine Your Pool Table’s Size
In the United States, there are four standard sizes of pool tables: 7 foot, 8 foot, 8.5 foot, and 9 foot.
To determine what size pool table you have, all you’ll need is a measuring tape.
Using the diamonds as a visual reference, measure straight across the shorter side of table, from one rail to the other:
Stop your measurement when you reach the beginning of other rail, and note the number on the tape measure.
Your measurement will likely be somewhere between 39″ and 50″.
If your table measures between 39″ and 40″, you have a 7 foot pool table.
If your table measures 44″, you have an 8 foot pool table
If your table measures 46.5″, you have an 8.5 foot pool table
If your table measures 50″, you have a 9 foot pool table.
If your number is much larger than 50″, it’s possible that you measured the long side of your pool table. Just re-measure your table on the short side and you’ll likely have a number that falls within the standard pool table sizes for the United States.
