The price of a pool table and factors to consider when buying

Are you a lover of pool and will love to purchase a pool table in Kenya? Then you are reading the right post. We will discuss pool table prices in Kenya in this post. Also, we will share some details about what to consider when buying pool tables. In the final part of this article we will tell you what factors determine the price of pool tables.

The price of a pool table starts at Ksh 33,000 to as high as 78,000 depending on the size brand and the distributor. These are the factors to consider.


This is the first thing that you should look out for. Different materials are used in constructing pool tables. The quality of materials used will usually determine the final cost of the table. 

Most pool tables are constructed using slate. This material is seen as the best quality for pool tables and it is quite expensive. Substitutes include fiberboard, slatine, plywood, and slatex to mention a few. 


The regular size of pool tables is 8 inch in length and 4 inch in width. However, you are likely to find 7 inch tables in restaurants and bars. Always check to see that the size suits your purposes and your space. There should always be ample room for players to move around the table.

Aesthetics and style

The three styles of pool tables are modern, contemporary, and classic. Ensure that you choose one that suits the location where the pool table will be used. The different styles vary in prices with the classic being the most costly of the three.

Playing equipment

Always check to see that all the necessary accessories are available before purchasing a pool table. The accessories you need include cue sticks, bridge sticks, billiard balls, pool ball racks, and pool table accessories.

Factors determining the prices of pool tables

In rounding up this post, let’s look at some factors that determine pool table prices in Kenya. 

Number of slates used

Like we told you above, slate is the primary material used in building pool tables and it is expensive. The number of slates used in constructing the table will determine its cost. Also, the thickness of the slate used is also a factor. If alternatives are used, the table is considerably cheaper.

Design of the table

The quality of the design also affects the price of the table. If you choose a classic style, you can bet that it will be costlier than a modern style pool table.


Again, size is a major factor that determines the price of pool tables. The larger the table, the costlier it will be.
