The interesting history of the pool table as a recreational tool and a way to engage in no small amount of gambling activities is well-known through the years. Known more formally as a billiards table, it is a surface upon which many billiards-type games are played. These games are also known more formally as cue sports.
Snooker is a cue-sport that is played on baize-covered table with six holes - one in each of the four corners and one on either side of the table, placed directly in the middle of the side cushion. A full-sized regulation Snooker tables dimensions are twelve foot by six foot.
As every pool player has realized at some point or another, the regulation pool table found in most pool halls is not the same size as those found in many homes and activity centres. Pool tables come in a full range of different sizes and are often designed quite differently to incorporate different styles of play. For instance, bumper pool is a unique form of cue games that requires a pool table with a special set of bumpers installed the middle of the table.
