Colt 8' Graphite Pool Table

We all love that feeling. That moment when you pick up your favorite cue and chalk up. Your buddy racks while you look on with a frosty pint in hand. It’s time to shoot some pool. What if you could bring that thrill home and bring your family together at the same time?

Adding a pool table to your game room has plenty of advantages beyond just having another toy in the house. Some you may not have even considered before!

So pull off that dust cover and show your kids the ropes. Not only will you share your love of the game but you’ll get some quality time as well. And who knows? Maybe you’ll raise the next Eddie Felson.

Here are our top 5 benefits to having a pool table in your home. Let us know in the comments what your favorites are!

1. It's a Fun Way to Keep Guests Entertained


We cherish those times when we can invite those closest to us into our homes and enjoy each other's company. A pool table is a great way to bring everyone together! Setting up a poolroom is an ideal way to become a gracious host with ease. If your get-togethers tend to be more casual, a pool table provides quick entertainment. Everyone appreciates a good game of pool, even folks who may not quite be considered sharks at the local pool hall.

2. It's Fun For the Whole Family


A game of pool can bring everyone together in your home. Teaching your children the ins and outs of the game while playing alongside them is a unique bonding experience. You’re not cheering from the stands, you are showing your kids in real-time how to master the game while having fun at the same time. Not to mention it gets everyone active and away from their screens. It's great when we find something fun for everyone!


3. It's a Great Way to Bond


A game of pool is never just that. It’s a time to crack jokes, tell stories, and even vent about our troubles. Having a pool table in your home gives you the opportunity to have those moments with your family any night of the week! It’s a busy world and giving your family these chances to connect can make all the difference in your home.

4. It's Great Exercise


Believe it or not, shooting pool is a great workout! Whether you are playing with family or friends, your whole body is involved in the game. From leaning over to sink a ball or lining up a shot, you are engaging in a lot of motion that you might not get in your day-to-day life. It's a great way to get moving and have fun in the process!


5. It Can Improve Your Hand-Eye Coordination


As you play, your hand-eye coordination could see some major improvement. Lining up your shot and striking the cue ball just right is the difference between winning and losing. Mastering the game takes a lot of practice and time in front of a table. However, with this practice comes a significant improvement in hand-eye coordination. And this is never a bad thing to have!
