Best Portable and small pool tables Review

When it comes to playing pool, there is usually one stumbling block which holds people back from installing a pool table in their home. In fact, there are two, but they usually go hand in hand. A pool table can be a massive expense, even though quality pool tables have never been more affordable, and can turn people away. This makes sense. Not everyone has the money lying around to spend on a pool table.

The other thing which puts people off is the size of a full-size pool table. Not everyone has the space to install a pool table in their home. Well, we may have a solution for you. With a folding or portable pool table, you do not have to worry about the space needed nor the expense. Folding and portable pool tables take away the expense and the need for a lot of space in your home.

The best portable pool tables have never been more affordable or of higher quality. We have been on a mission to find the best and most affordable portable pool tables and have compiled some of our favorites. Let’s take a look at the very best.

Mini Tabletop Pool Set- Billiards Game Includes Game Balls, Sticks, Chalk, Brush and Triangle-Portable and Fun for the Whole Family by Hey! Play!

Why we like it:

We love the size of this table. You can play on it anywhere in the home where there is a surface (even on the ground). The table is also small enough to be portable. Pack it up and take it anywhere with you.


Summary:

If you do not have a lot of space in your home for a pool table, then this could be perfect for you. This miniature pool table does not take up a lot of room, fitting onto almost any tabletop for a fun and entertaining game of pool. At only twenty inches long and twelve inches wide, this pool table will fit anywhere.

There is no set up needed to get this pool table ready to play. You also have all the accessories needed to start a game as soon as you unpack the box. The pool cues are perfectly-sized for the table and are weighted to give you a professional game.


The balls feel great as they collide against each other, bounce off the cushions, and fall into the pockets. The table is strong and sturdy, making it great for children to practice on without you worrying about the table taking any damage or wear and tear — the perfect table to learn on or just to have fun with.

Tabletop Pool Table Set and Accessories, 40” x 20” x 9” - Mini, Travel-Size Billiard Tables, Balls, Cues, and Rack - Fun, Portable Family Games for Kids, Parties, Camping, Road Trips

Why we like it:

We love the professionalism in this table. Not only is the table high-quality with a professional look but the accessories are too. The result is a table which the entire family will love to use.


Summary:

This is another great portable pool table which will save you space. We like that this table comes with legs, elevating the table above the surface which it is on.


For such a small and portable table, it also features a great look. We like the grey felt and the wooden surround. The look is professional, and it is also durable. The same is true for the accessories. The balls and cues are not full-size, but that has not stopped them from being created with precision and elegance. The cues are 20% heavier than most cues for pool tables this size, giving you more control and power in your shots.

At forty inches in length, you almost have a half-size pool table. This would be great to learn the game on or to add in some more practice of angles and cue ball control.

Pros

Sunnydaze 36-Inch Mini Tabletop Pool Table Set with Triangle, Balls, Cues, Chalk and Brush

Why we like it:

We like the quality of this table. The table looks and plays great. The accessories are smaller than the ones which you get with a full-size table, but they are still high-quality and professional. This is a table which everyone will love to play on.


Summary:

Another wonderful pool table which will save you space while allowing you to play a fun and entertaining game. At only thirty-six inches long, this table will fit in any room, on any surface or the floor. The setup is easy, and you can be playing in minutes. The cues and balls have a quality which you would not expect from a table this size, especially one so affordable, and you also get a brush to take care of your table.

You get a good bounce from the cushions, and we like how the balls drop into the pockets. There are no annoying pocket bounces which you get with some cheaper tables — a great table for any level of player.

Rack Leo Foldable 4-Foot Billiard/Pool Table, Includes Complete Accessories Set

Why we like it:

A great table for all players to learn on. You will be amazed at the professional quality of such an affordable table.


Summary:

When it comes to entertaining your guests, what could be better than bringing out a pool table, unfolding it before their eyes, and getting a game started in a couple of minutes? That is exactly what you can do with this folding pool table. The pool table is extremely easy to assemble when you get it delivered, and you can then fold and unfold it with ease. When it is folded, the pool table can be stored easily, and when it is unfolded, you get a half-size pool table which is perfect for quick games, quick practices, or children.

There are leg levelers on each of the legs so you can level the table easily before you start a game, no matter what the condition of the floor underneath. It is also light enough for one person to be able to transport and fold it. You get all the included accessories needed for a game, including two cues, the balls, a rack, and chalk. We like that the balls have a solid feel to them and, even though they are not full-size, will mimic the shots you get with full-size balls. This helps you to work on your power and accuracy, with the angles of play being the same as in a full-size game.

This is a great table for all of the family or for games nights with friends. You are not going to get a full-size professional table, but that is not what you are looking for. This is a table which is going to save you space and money while bringing a lot of fun and entertainment.

IFOYO Billiard Table, 55 Inch Folding Pool Table Steady Modern Space Saving Billiard Table Game for Kids and Adults with Cues, Ball, Chalk, Rack, Brush Included

Why we like it:

Great for every room of the house. We like how compact this table folds up, allowing you to store it under the bed if needed. We also like how professional this table looks and how professional it plays.


Summary:

We love the look of this table. You have a choice of two colors: blue or green. The classic green will fit with any room while the rich blue adds a little more style and panache to the look. The wooden surround adds some elegance while the leather-style pockets add some class to the proceedings.

When this table is delivered, you can have it assembled in minutes. It is also light enough that one person can assemble and lift the table. When you are folding and unfolding the table, you need to remove and replace screws in the legs, but when you have done that, the table folds down slim enough to be stored in a closet or under the bed.

The accessories are included with your purchase. You get two cues, a set of balls, a rack, chalk, and a table brush to keep the felt in tip-top condition.

We love the roll and level of bounce which you get with this table. More than you would expect for a table which folds.
