Pool and snooker are becoming increasingly popular among people of all ages, including kids. If you have a full sized pool table at home, your kids may watch you play and get interested in the game. However, a full sized pool table may not be the best for kids. If your kids are interested in learning and you would like to teach them how to play pool, it might be a good idea to invest in a kids’ pool table for your home. What are kids’ pool tables? How and where can you buy these tables?

Are pool tables for kids different?

The simple answer is, yes they are different. Pool tables made especially for kids are made such that they are comfortable for kids. Normal pool tables for adults are made to suit the requirements of full grown adults. The height, dimensions and materials are chosen and fixed accordingly.

Kids’ pool tables are generally:

Lower in height than normal tables to help kids play more comfortably.

Made of materials other than felt that can withstand rough handling and spillage by kids.

Lighter and smaller in dimensions so kids can handle these tables with ease.

Fold-able or easily movable. Some can also be dismantled when not in use.

Most kids will handle a pool table differently from an adult, and hence, the tables must also be designed keeping these difference in mind.

How to buy pool tables for kids

Look for tables that made for certain ages and choose one that suits the age of your kid. Such tables have the correct height and dimensions for kids of different ages.

If your kid is particularly messy or rough with handling things, choose a table made of metal or other materials that can be handled roughly. Choose a synthetic top instead of felt.

Choose a table depending on the level of seriousness you and your kid have towards the game. Do not spend $500 on a pool table if it just a plaything.

You should have a basic idea of what to look for in a pool table, and why you want to buy a kids’ pool table before actually buying one.
