Pool Table

To get the maximum enjoyment out of your pool table, it’s important that you allow for sufficient playing space around the table. In this short guide, we will advise on the recommended space, and some useful alternatives if space is a constraint.

Calculating The Area Required

When it comes to calculating the area required for a pool table, it’s quite simple. Just use this formula and you will come to the ideal space required for a pool table;

Ideal Length: 10ft + length of table
Ideal Width: 10ft + width of table

This is on the basis of using a 57” cue, and so if you’re looking at purchasing a 7ft table, then the ideal space would be 17ft x 13.5ft.

Space Saving Alternative

If however space is a constraint, then a 48” troubleshooter cue can be used when shots at the edge of the table are to be taken. In which case, you could reduce the space required by a further 2ft on both the length and width.

Therefore, a 7ft table would only require 15ft x 11.5ft, which is a much smaller area than the original ideal space.

Do not worry about a troubleshooter cue affecting the quality of gameplay though, as our troubleshooter cues are all properly weighted and designed to feel like a regular cue.

Foosball

Foosball tables are relatively space saving in general, and you will just need to cater some additional space around the table for movement during gameplay. As a rule of thumb, the recommended area for a foosball table is an area of 185cm x 150cm.

If you have space constraints, you can also consider a foldable table, which folds up nicely along the wall when not in use. We’ve a selection of foldable tables that are designed to be robust enough for adult usage.

Retro Arcade

Despite the common misconception about how bulky these arcade machines are, many are surprised by the actual footprint of one of these machines. The area required for one of these machines works out to be around 68cm x 68cm – which is slightly above 4 sqf.

Just take note, Retroarcade machines all run on 240v AC, so make sure to place it close by to a power socket.

Pinball

It is imperative that you choose the right size table for your room to make sure you have the correct playing space needed. Most games or dining rooms will have obstructions like fireplaces or furniture that may restrict play, sometimes we can get round these by using a shorter length cue going as small as 3′ or 3′ 6″.

Table Tennis

Table tennis tables are one of our largest items, and a full sized table tennis table typically size up to around 276cm x 183cm. That’s around the size of a 9ft table.

The official tournament space requirement for table tennis table is 46ft x 23ft – which is an incredible amount of space that renders it practically impossible for home users.

If you are interested in playing casual table tennis at home however, the minimum space that is recommended and tested by us is 6.76m x 3.83m. And of course, if space is a constraint, opt for one of our smart foldable table which makes it really convenient to owning a proper table tennis table.

Air Hockey

Air hockey tables may seem bulky, but the playing area is minimal and so, makes a great option for people with space constraints.

A 7ft full sized air hockey table would typically measure around 2.1m x 1.2m, and if you were to include a comfortable standing area of 3ft on each side, you’re looking at a total area of around 3.0m x 1.2m.

Take note to place your air hockey table close by to a power socket, as air hockey tables all run on 240v AC.

Beer Pong

Our Beer Pong tables are all standard official sized tables that are used in the Beer Pong championships – yes, there are such things! Storing a Beer Pong table is easy, as the table folds up into a 60cm x 60cm case.

Our Beer Pong tables measure 2.4m x 0.61m when fully laid out, so to enjoy a good game of beer pong, you will have to have a space of minimally 3.6m x 0.61m.

Darts & Dartboards

Dartboards are extremely space saving, and almost require nothing in terms of space requirements. Some of our dartboards are AC running, and some DC, so make sure you have the necessary power supply when planning your space.

The key thing about dartboards is mounting it at the right height – that’s 173cm from ground to the middle of bullseye. After that, all that is needed from here on is to mark a line 237cm vertically away from the dartboard and that is where you throw your darts from.

Alternatively, if you’re up for some style, get one of our dartmats and roll it out it it’s full glory right from the wall.
