What Is The Seven-Foot Billiard Table?

Billiards is played using a cue stick to strike balls into pockets on the table’s surface. A player can also strike balls so that they scatter across the table and are not pocketed. This is called a carom shot.

Common pool table sizes are 8 feet and 9 feet. But as billiards became a more popular sport, smaller pool tables emerged. The seven-foot billiard table is one such smaller, more convenient pool table.

The seven-foot billiard table is a variation of the standard nine- or ten-foot billiard table. The main difference is that it's shorter, but it also has a smaller playing surface. The seven-foot table was created to allow for more tables to fit into a room and also to allow for more people to play at once. 

The size of a seven-foot billiard table is normally around 7 feet by 4.5 feet but can vary slightly depending on the brand or model. The playing surface of a seven-foot pool table is smaller than standard-sized tables, which means that less room is needed to play and fewer balls are necessary to play with.

So how much space does a pool table of this size need? Different pool tables will have some differences. Let's take SZX's seven-foot billiard table as an example to introduce how much space you will need and what accessories you will need.

If the table will be used in a bar or other commercial setting, you should also consider the amount of space needed for seating and other amenities.
