Maximizing Your Game Room Space: The Ultimate Table Game Requirements
This is the ultimate guide about the space around pool tables and air hockey tables in your home game room. It'll go over how much space you need to allow for the games themselves and how to use the space around the table to its full potential.
This article will also describe a few ways to make your game room feel larger without sacrificing game table space–enjoy!
What's the Space Needed for a Ping Pong Table?
Depending on the manufacturer, the ping pong table will be made to fit six-to-ten people. To allow for that many people to play comfortably, the ping pong table will measure 92 inches long by 30 inches wide (6-to-10 players).
You may want to consider the amount of space needed for the game itself to be more than the table itself. It is best to allow at least sixteen inches of space on your ping pong table (on both sides) for each person playing. This will allow some extra room around the table to move about comfortably.
What's the Space Needed for a Pool Table?
The amount of space needed for a pool table will depend entirely on the style and make of the table itself, but the consensus is that you will need a minimum of 8' x 4' (72" x 36") to play pool comfortably.
However, the reality is that you will need much more space than that. The pool table will take up half of the room itself, but the remaining space needs to be left open to allow plenty of walking space around the table.

Here are five factors you should consider when purchasing your ping pong table:
1. Indoor or Outdoor Use
The first thing you’ll need to decide is if you want to play indoors or outdoors. There are two distinct kinds of tables you'll come across. Indoor tables are typically cheaper and more compact, but outdoor tables tend to be more durable and are built to handle the elements. We’ll touch on how this decision will affect your play area later.
2. Place of Use
If you're thinking about getting a ping pong table for your office, look for one that's not too big, or you might end up having to squeeze it in between a bunch of desks. You can always get an office ping pong table that is foldable and takes up less space. Ditto for home use, unless you’re going to get ALOT of use out of your table.
On the other hand, you'll most likely want something nice and sturdy for outdoor use. You’ll want to ensure that it is weatherproofed and able to handle the climate in your area. While folding options are available, non-folding tables
