How much is table time in your area? - 06-20-2010, 07:10 PM

Please help!

I'm trying to get an idea ON AVERAGE of how much table time costs across the country. Please vote based on the average per-hour rate based on the pool halls in your area.

Thanks,

It's $5 for single and $10 for two or more in NE Atl.
I wasn't sure how to vote, so I voted for single player rate.

Good point. Sorry, I should've clarified.

"Under $8/hr" is for more than one player.

Thanks!

Its so good my last and only cube was stolen off the table when I went to the bath room.
They left my $1000 cue but stole my chalk, how strong is that?

The pool hall about 100 miles from me charges $2.50/hour/person from 1200 to 1800 (6 PM) and $5.00/hour/person from 1800 to closing.

Well worth the drive as the folks who run it are truly first-class and the tables play true and tight IMO.

OT but I love 24-hour time.

The pool hall here in Bel Air MD is 3.50 per person per hour before 6pm and 4.50 per person per hour after 6pm. But if you play on an APA team out of their you play for free. Except Friday and Saturday between 8 and 11pm which is understandable.

Yeah...exactly!
The one place we were, they had daily specials on the 8 footers, and 9 foot gold crowns. Think the special was $10/day which was a definite bargain.
Of course we have to play on the Diamonds...no special on those
Pretty sad when you win 970 but only come home with 120 profit...especially staying at Travelodge and eating Popeye's chicken everyday!..haha
Just like old times

For pool, the place I usually go to charges 700yen per hour for men and 600 for women. But, they also have membership one time membership fee, like 5 or 10 bucks. If you take the membership then it's men 600 per hour and women 500. In US dollars, to keep it simple, just put a period in there ($6.00) etc...

For 3-cushion the yearly membership is like 30 bucks and the hourly fee is like 8 or 9 bucks per hour.

There's another place that I go to for pool that charges 3.00 per hour. It's not really a pool hall though. A friend of mine has a car shop and he put 4 tables upstairs and lets us come in to play. Funny thing is that we write down our own start time, finish time, drinks we bought etc... and if he isn't there when you finish you just add everything up yourself, pay and make your own change. It really is the honor system. He has a money box sitting open. It would be so easy to rip him off. I'd kick anyone's ass that did though if I caught them.

Here I pay anywhere from $4-5 an hour per person, but I also play for free on Saturdays from 11am-5pm and play Sundays for $5 total from noon till 6pm.

A very nice place I used to play at started out charging $10 an hour. By the time I went to check it out a few months after it opened I think they were charging me $2 an hour, but it was too late as they ran off a lot of business with prices and terrible customer relations. A few months later they were closed up.

Another place I play at charges a $15 a month membership fee (for those who want it) to play every day they are open from open till close for $8. That's a great deal.....now if I could only not work 60 hours a week from 630pm-630am so I could actually go there.


Yes my custom cue also doubles as a light saber. You might say that it shoots lights out. You are now activated Agent 92395. Obtain the funds from Goldman Sachs and deposit into my Swiss account. This message will make you shit your pants in 5 seconds. Sev found it first.
