There is much ambiguity over the term "snooker table".
On the one hand it is a table on which to play the specific game of "snooker", the billiards cue sport invented by British Army officers in 1884, and for which the rules are now strictly regulated by the WPBSA.
On the other, it is a broad term to describe a table on which any number of billiard games may be played.
Matchsnooker interprets both definitions. First we make full size snooker tables (12ft x 6ft) to comply rigidly with WPBSA tournament rules. And we also make a range of additional tables sizes (8ft, 9ft, 10ft) that allows for a specific, or a combination of, cue sports.
Ultimately it is the varying size of ball that determines the main table game variants (pocket openings and cushion depth).
If we use a diner top for a full size table, it would normally be for boardroom meetings or banquets. If the table is used for serious play it has to be set at a playing height of 34 inches, which restricts practical dining. Moreover the weight of the table requires 8 sturdy-legs as support. It follows therefore that a diner top is more practical for layout meetings or self-serve buffets. The removable top would be in 5 separate sections, overlapping the cushion rails with a "skirt"
9ft and 10ft snooker tables
These are normally referred to as "three quarter size" tables, which again for serious play would be fixed at a playing height of 34 inches unless otherwise requested, and would supported by 6 legs or 8 legs respectively.
8ft snooker tables
8ft (or half-size tables) bridge the gap between competition snooker which plays a full size snooker ball, and "snooker-pool" which plays a 2inch ball, permitting either 10-reds snooker or pub-pool. The latter is played at 31-inch playing height. With the option to use 4 legs this is most practical and optimises a snooker dining table application.
For those considering a full size or undersize snooker table, and to broaden its "convivial" dining functionality, it is clear there are many considerations which we have only touched upon. Please get in touch for more personalised advice.
