There are various types of pool tables that are used for different kinds of pool games. Some of these pool tables are carom billiards tables, pocket pool tables, and snooker tables. The dimensions, pockets, cushions, bed, markings, cloth, and materials of each of these pool table types may differ.

A pool table is a bounded table used for cue sports. In the modern era, all pool tables (whether for carom, billiards, or snooker) have a flat surface made of quarried slate that is covered with cloth (usually a tightly woven worsted wool called baize) and surrounded by rubber cushions, all elevated above the floor. More specific terms, such as snooker table and billiard table, are used for specific sports, and different-sized pool balls are used on these table types.

Pool tables are available in a variety of sizes, including 9-foot (2.7 m), 8.5-foot (2.6 m), 8-foot (2.4 m), and 7-foot (2.1 m). In all cases, the pool table is rectangular.

Pool games rely on precision and technique, which necessitates consistent practice in order to maintain muscle memory. They are one of the most technically demanding sports in the world when compared to others. As a result, players must engage in regular practice. Snooker, pool, and billiards games were halted in 2020 for three months due to COVID-19, which will have a long-term impact on the players' game. 

Pool is a recreational as well as a competitive sport. The individual must select a pool table at their own discretion. Pool tables were designed in a variety of styles depending on the time period and materials available locally. The change occurred as a result of evolving of the game's rules. Pool tables, which were originally made of slate, are now made of metal and wood, with velvet cushions to add an amazing aesthetic value. This has resulted in an additional cost for manufacturers.
