American Pool Tables

Big, stylish and authentically American!

American tables differ from British tables in a couple of key respects. Firstly where a British table will only get as big as 7ft - this is generally where American table sizes start from. To compensate for these bigger table sizes, the pockets and therefore the balls are bigger to match. The cloth used is a speed-cloth and the rubber is set differently. Beyond this there are many different styles of American tables that aren't seen with British tables.

American Pool tables

It could be argued that the most beautifully designed pool tables have come from the USA. American pool tables show off some of the best styles at the traditional end of the spectrum right through to the most modern designs.

The differences between American pool tables and British pool tables are quite well known, but as a quick reference the following applies:

•    British pool tables are built to a maximum overall size of 7ft where as American designs reach full size at 9ft
•    In general the size of a British pool table refers to the overall length where as an American table is usually described using the length of its play surface.
•    American pool tables have larger pocket sizes than British models, they do however use larger 2 &3/4 inch diameter pool balls compared to just 2” found on their UK counterparts
•    The way the rubber is cut on an American table is different from that of a UK table. American cushions are cut in a wedge shape where as UK cushions are cut in an ‘L’ shape
•    Finally, the cloth used on an American pool table is different from a UK cloth. In short British pool tables use a knapped cloth with a high wool content where as American tables use what’s known as a speed cloth with a high nylon content.

The size of an American pool tables tend to make them the centre piece of a room and certainly the cueing room needed around the table means a full size model takes up a considerable amount of space.

There are some famous American pool table brands including Longoni, Brunswick and Sam but surprisingly two out of three of them are actually made in Europe. This gives the UK a unique access point to some best tables in the world.
