Snooker Table Light Size

A guide to selecting the right snooker table light size.


Snooker Table Light Size

Snooker tables are huge, and when you are choosing a light to hang above your snooker table, you need to be sure you have the right snooker table light size.

Snooker Table Light Size

With a snooker table, the ratio of the pocket space to rail space is completely different from that of a pool table and all of your shots have to be planned and executed more carefully. You simply can not afford a small light for all snooker tables.

The general rule of thumb for snooker table light size is this:

  • 10' Snooker Table Light Size– If you have 10' go with 5 shades or more.
  • 12' Snooker Table Light Size – 6 shade snooker table light

A more detailed chart of snooker table light size recommendations:

  • 5' x 10' snooker table - 4 to 5 light snooker table light fixture will be the best (60” to 80” length light fixture)
  • 6' x 12' snooker table - 5 to 6 light snooker table light fixture will be the best (90” to 110” length light fixture)

Generally when it comes to snooker table light size, bigger and more light is better.

Sometimes people purchase two 3-shade pool table lights and hanging them above the 12' snooker tables. It woks but it tends to look odd for some reason.
