These different size Snooker/Billiard Tables have been manufactured since the 1870's, before this time the majority of tables were Full-Size which is 12' x 6' (366 x 183 cm).

The game of Pool - both UK & American - can be played on a Snooker/ Billiard table of all sizes apart from Full-Size (12' x 6' - 366 x 183 cm). This game is played using a set of pool balls - which are numbered spots & stripes or red and yellow balls. In the case of American Pool - which is played with larger pool balls and slightly different pocket sizes and cushions, slight alterations to a Snooker/ Billiard Table would be required.
