Bumper Pool Tables

Bumper Pool Tables are used by two to four players to play bumper pool, a daily entertainment game. These tables are half the size of a standard pool table, and are in shape either rectangular or octagonal. Have a look at this official site to get more info on this.

A bumper pool table only has two pockets or holes where it carries about six holes like a regular pool table. On the table, the table has 12 bumpers, and hence the name. Four of them are positioned at the extreme end of the table, near the pocket with two each. The remaining 8 bumpers are positioned around the table’s middle section. The bumpers serve as the player’s defensive mechanism, as the opponent attempts to bank the ball into the pocket. Bumper pool table has 5 red and white balls for each player,

Bumper Pool Tables are available in a variety of sizes ranging from 48 inches to 54 inches, with the most common size being 54 inches by 30 inches. Often these tables are made of a combination of solids and veneers, or of fine hardwood. The top-playing surface is mostly draped over a wood or slate base with green felt fabric. Most pool tables with bumper have elegantly carved legs, aprons and foundation.

The bumper pool table serves as a perfect substitute for a billiard table and can even be accommodated in limited space. They are available as multi-functional bumper pool tables which can be converted into a dining table or a table with cards. The tables come with balls, brush, chalk and two cue points.
