British Pool Table Sizes. The two main sizes are 6ft and 7ft. The 7ft tables measure approximately 7ft x 4ft, and the 6ft tables are closer to 6ft x 3ft. These are very approximate dimensions, and each table will vary slightly depending on the cabinet style.
When talking about a UK table we talk about the overall table size and not the playing area. The 7ft UK table means that the overall cabinet dimensions are 7ft x 4ft and not the playing surface. The confusion again comes from the original American game of pool. American tables are usually 7ft, 8ft or 9ft in size.
In this post, we will guide you to measure a pool table to order the right size pool table or order the right felt for the table you already own. A general rule that you should keep in mind is that the length of the pool table is double of the width of the table.
