Pool Tables: Are All The Same?

A billiard table is usually covered in 100% Baize, which is a smooth and wrinkle-free compact fabric. Pool and snooker tables nearly always use felt instead. Billiards is usually more of a premium feel build to the tables.

A pool table, in contrast, has six pockets, four of which are situated on each of the angles and two on the central point of each long side. Pool tables come in varying sizes of 7, 8, and 9 ft. in length. Some new style pool tables which are designed to fit in small flats or are used to double as a dining table in a dining room come in even smaller sizes of around 6ft.

Finally, snooker tables are bigger than billiard or pool tables. They are also lower and have smaller pockets, making the game much trickier. European snooker tables are usually 12 ft. x 6 ft. Snooker tables in the U.S. are slighter, measuring 10 ft. x 5ft.

Hopefully this has informed anyone who was curious about the three.

We can supply pool tables to hire or profit share in various sizes and colours to suit your needs.

Pool Tables are available in the following sizes:

  • 7 x 4 (Standard UK league size pool table)
  • 6 x 3 best used where space is limited

We recommend that that you have at least 3 foot around each side of the pool table to allow for the best experience.

Green is the standard colour we use on our Pool Tables. Other colours are available but may incur extra cost and delay.

Pool tables on hire and profit sharing are supplied with:

  • Large and small cues with spare tips
  • Plenty of chalk to suit cloth colour
  • Reds and Yellows or Spots and Stripes ball set
  • Spare balls including black and white 
  • Ball triangle
