This is a good question. Very good, because if you're going to do the "add 5 ft to each side" idea, then it should be very clear how big each side is, right? It's amazing how many people have no idea.

A 9' table is 100" x 50" from nose to nose. There should be approximately 6 inches of rail and cushion on each side. Some have more. Some have less. But, 6" is a good start. So, that's 112" x 62". If you add 5' (60") to each side, then that is 232" x 182". So, that's 19' 4" x 15' 2".

Many people will be surprised when they do the math and get this kind of number, since they'll often expect 19' x 14.5" as an answer. Normally, when this question is asked, most posters won't bother reading it and understand the significance of the dimensions, especially in the shorter direction.

19' is shorter by 2" per side. 14.5" is 4" per side shorter. So, when people are seeing how small they can go before they get out of the comfort range, it's usually the shorter direction that screws people up.

Can someone tell me the dimensions of a 9ft. Diamond Professional from outside rail to outside rail? I'm trying to figure out where to put the light and the table. Thank you, Steve

I won't worry then Should I do anything special for the light? My ceiling is 7' 8" so I plan to surface mount it above the table. Not sure of the weight so I'm not sure if I should add any reinforcement or not. It has 2" X 2" studs right now in the ceiling.

I'm hoping I can fit the long part of the table comfortably in the 18' portion. Will it fit there or should I plan on rotating the table for the long part to fit in the 20' 8" part and the short side to fit in the 18' side. Also, check your PM's. I'm trying to figure out a schedule on what you will be coming. I plan to take the day off work (if it's during a weekday) and I need to get it scheduled off. Thanks, Glen! Steve

Sometimes they make that part clear. Bob Jewett SF Billiard Academy
