Game Room Size Requirements

Game Room Size Requirements

I am looking for advice on game room size requirements and how much space around a pool table is necessary.

I am looking to buy some new furniture for my game room but wanted to know how much space I can get away with.

My billiard table will also be in this room. How much space do I need to preserve around the pool table to be able to still play comfortably?

    Basically, you take the size of the table and extend the length of the cue from the rail in all directions.

    A typical cue is 59 inches long (call it 60" or 5') The playing surface of an 8 foot table is 90" by 45"

    So you want:: 90+60+60 = 210" or 17.5 feet by 45+60+60 = 165" or 13+3/4 feet

    You can allow certain movable obects (chairs) inside this limit and simply move them when you need to shoot from the occupied space. (However, this can become a pain.) In addition you can buy short cues (shorties) to allow you to take a shot when impeeded by an obsticle (such as a post or wall). Short cues are available in 52" 48" and 40".

    The appropriate game room size is dependent upon the type of games you want to plan in your room. I think you should have a minimum area of at least 70 square feet of floor area.
