You’re finally ready to get that pool table of your dreams? You’ve come to the right place. Here are the basic questions you need answered:
The handy dandy charts below (based on our 100 years of experience) will help answer the first and second questions, giving you the space needed for certain sized tables, and depending on what length cue sticks you choose.
But the third question is really the one that will determine how much fun and use you will get out of your table. The bigger the table, the more skill each shot will require. The general rule of thumb is that shorter tables are the easiest to play on, and you need to be more expert to play each bigger size. So if you and your family and friends are true sharks (and you have a big enough room), by all means go for a 9-foot table. But we find that the sweet spot for easy and fun playability is in the 7- to 8-foot range. The balls will stay closer together and it will never be too far to the nearest pocket. 6-foot tables are generally for bars or for situations where space is very limited.

Moving your pool table – even just to another location in the same room -- is a very delicate and time-consuming process. The weight of the table will cause the joints and dowels to become damaged if it is not done correctly. Our in-house team is trained, vetted and insured to disassemble the table, transport it safely and reassemble it in the new location to Billiards Congress of America specifications. Do not attempt to lift the table with your friends or family. You run the risk of damaging the table, or yourselves!
Kindly fill out our contact form with your name, number, email address, current table location, new table location, and photo(s) of your table(s). The more details, the faster we can assist!
So, you enjoyed your table so much, that you wore it down? Blatt Billiards offers full restoration services on all fronts.
Pockets – Blatt Billiards hand sews and dyes our own pockets. We replace pockets in sets only. If your pool table or antique pool table pockets needs restoration or replacement, kindly reach out to our workshop team. Please note that for antique pool tables, we will need the original irons on the pockets themselves.
Rubber – Lost your bounce? Do not worry, Blatt Billiards offers rubber replacement services. This is normally a two-step job, where we would come to pick up the rails at your location and bring them to our workshop where we have the best tools/machinery to properly cut and fit the rubber to your rails. If you change the rubber on your table, we must also change the cloth as well on the rails and bed of your table.
Finishing – Sun faded or showing signs of age (your table, not you!)? Blatt Billiards offers highly professional re-finishing restorations. Our finishes are hand rubbed, and our finishing department can offer custom, or cross-matched wood stained colors. Please note, we do not offer onsite re-finishing, or touch ups. We do all re-finishing services in the controlled environment of our workshop.
Has your table settled into the floors or its own hardware? Although you may now know the competitive “sweet spots” on your table, it might be time to re-level. We offer onsite re-leveling services by our in-house mechanics team.
Note: Leveling is included in our cloth replacement and relocation services.
