OOOh, I'd like to hear the answer tp this one too! My boyfriend absolutely insists that we have a couch in the living room, so a pool table inside is out of the question for me. Don't know why we need a couch anyway, just one more thing for the boy to get dirt on......

I've played on one outdoor table, several years back.

It had a textured vinyl 'cloth', which was very strange, and for this reason alone, I would recommend enclosing your deck, and buying a 'real' table.

I wish I could be more detailed, but it was long ago, and I remember that it started sprinkling rain, which made the balls skid across the table, rather than roll! Oh, and just trying to hit straight, with a wet cue tip/ball combination is right out--not that you'd play in those conditions, but I tried it because I could.

As for "measuring up" to a regular ("regulation") indoor table, any non-standard cloth covered table is going to come up short. Kind of like comparing apples to pomegranates. . . .
