How much room do I need for my pool table?

Room Need for Pool Table by Pool Cue Length

Sometimes space is tight.

For those instances, there are pool cues made that are less than the standard 57-58 inches in length.

Above is a handy chart that helps you determine how much room you need for your pool table using these varying length pool cues.

Short pool cues are also helpful if you generally have plenty of room, but might have a particularly tight corner or perhaps a post or stud that might prevent the use of a full length cue for a specific shot.

These short cues are often referred to as children’s pool cues.

While the use of shorter cues can certainly help children who find full length cues unwieldy, they are also useful for these specific situations where you may not enough room around your table for these various shots.
