 What are 9ft pool tables ideal for?

There are several reasons why a 9ft pool table might be ideal for a larger area such as a game room or a commercial setting. To help you determine whether a 9ft pool table is right for you, consider these factors:

Room size:

There is more room needed for a 9ft pool table than for a smaller table, so a larger room is required. To comfortably fit a 9ft pool table, you should have at least 14ft x 18ft of space.

Player skill level:

The 9-foot pool table is typically used in competitive settings, such as pool halls and professional tournaments. A 9ft table may be a good choice ideal for adults and teens who are looking to improve their game or play competitively.

Game type:

Some pool games, such as straight pool, nine-ball, eight-ball, bank pool and one pocket are played on larger tables. In some cases, a 9ft pool table table may be required to play these games properly.


9ft pool tables can be more expensive than smaller tables, so you should consider your budget when deciding on the size of your table.

A 9ft pool table would be ideal in most instances for advanced players looking to play competitively, as well as in commercial settings where multiple players will be using the table at the same time. If you are a casual player or your living space is small, you may not find it necessary or practical.
