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.

Establish If You Want a Long-Term or Temporary Placement
This is something you want to think about before choosing your foosball table. A full-sized table will require some intensive assembly. If this is your centerpiece, or you plan to keep it in place for a long time, then this style is for you.
If you want something you can keep around and bust out for events, then you may want to consider a smaller table.
Consider Whether You'll Charge for Games
Purchasing a coin-operated foosball table only makes sense if it will in some way enhance your business. Beyond their obvious and rightful place in an arcade, they are great ways to provide entertainment for guests to your bar or restaurant.

Shuffleboard Tables 101: Your Complete Guide to the Game
All kinds of sports have their variations. Shuffleboard is no different, it's a game where two players try to move their pieces from one end of the board to the other by sliding them across the surface on disks called pucks and getting them into specific parts of the board that are worth different points values. Its variation, which is table shuffleboard, is also commonly played just as fervently as the original sport.
As the name suggests, shuffleboard is played with on a special table made for the game. Shuffleboard tables can be made from a variety of materials but the best are made from a combination of high-quality woods, metals, and finishes. Higher-quality tables provide better gameplay and a longer life for the table itself.
This article will discuss everything there is to know about shuffleboard tables. Read on below to get started.
The Ideal Table Size
Table shuffleboard tables are usually around four feet long, two feet wide, and 18 to 24 inches high.
The dimensions are there because they are recommended by the United States Table Shuffleboard Association (USSSA), the governing body of table shuffleboard. Since each player's table should have the exact measurements, you'll want to stick to these dimensions for the sake of fairness.
Beyond that, there are also other sizes of shuffleboard tables. These are:
