Room Size Guide

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".

Cue Sizes

  • 4' 10" (58" or 147cm) – Full Size

  • 4' (48" or 122cm)
  • 3' 6" (42" or 107cm)
  • 3' (36" or 91cm)
