Hey guys, Im moving into a new home, and the only possible room to put a bar box (7x3.5) pool table is 11 feet wide. How much trouble do you guys think it will be when shooting there. I dont mind shooting with a shorty cue on some shots but I dont want to make it a habit.

Also, there is a wall that is possible to knock down if need be. But I was just wondering if there was a way around it.... thanks guys. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Here's my rule of thumb.

Assuming the bar box cushion to cushion measures 40x80.

Add 120 inches (58' cue plus two inches X 2)

Accordingly, minimum room size to keep use of short cues to a minimum would be 160" (40+120) 13.3ft by 200 (80+120) inches 16.67 ft.

Hope that helps.

Looks like that one wall has to come down /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

If it's not a bearing wall get the sledge hammer out and start swing... /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I have since built a 20 X 17 room to house my table. Prior to that when I bought the house the table went in the basement and the first thing I did was move a wall back 4ft.

Unfortunately, hidden within that wall was a non-removable load bearing pole near the side pocket. It only came into play about 10% of the time however so it was still good to be able to play and practice at home.
