View Full Version : Pool table height

What's the normal height of a pool table? I've glued a plastic bottle to a piece of board, to practice my stroke. I'm trying to find something in the house about the right height. Thanks

29 to 31 inches from the floor. Just use your shaft to measure. If it's a little higher than the shaft, then it's ok.

Good afternoon:

If you visit the BCA WebSite, you will find all of the equipment specifications you are looking for.

Thanks for the responses. The dining room table is just right. /ccboard/images/icons/cool.gif Now off to practice my stroke. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

This would qualify you as a pool nut. LOL
Don't just use ANY plastic water bottle, use Evian water bootle to shoot thru.

I typically measure height by standing next to tables in tha poolroom (and they DO vary!) Then go home find something about tha same height. Right now it's tha back of tha couch where I practice my stroke (only when tha Mrs isn't watchin her taped soap opera...lol)

I don't get to the poolhall nearly as often as I'd like, and don't have a table at home right now. This will give me something constructive that I can do at home to improve my game. /ccboard/images/icons/smile.gif

Try using a dresser with a mirror or the bathroom sink if it has a counter. It is much easier to see if your stick is moving in a straight line by watching the butt of the cue in the mirror. Any movement at the tip is magnified at the butt of the cue.
