Table Height


I just put together a little practice table, but it feels way too high sitting on top of my Ping-Pong table.  Does anybody know the exact height of a table?  Is their a standard height, or do they vary from casino to casino?

Thanks in advance


Steve, Table heights vary some but if you put the landing zone at 27- 28 inches it should feel comfortable for you. The other thing that happens is the heights of the chip rails vary. I don't like shooting at Paris because the rail is higher.  If you are tall you might not notice it but short players really notice the difference.  I'm 5'10" so I'm kinda in the middle but when the rail gets in the way of the protruding section of my body that's above my belt it will throw me off.


The table I had a chance to put a tape measure to was 26" from the carpet to the surface of the table.

May the dice be nice!


Well, I sort of backed into it. From floor to the chip rack was 38 inches. Now, the rubber pyramid sheets that go on the back wall come in 4' by 9" strips, as I recall. So if I do the math - 38 minus 9 - I come up with 29 inches - which, by the way - is the exact same heigth someone else - I believe the man in black - posted here a few months back. Anyway - I'm thinking 29" to the top of the table surface. If you're table top is 3/4 inch plywood then you're down close to 28" to the bottom of the table. Make sense?

Now, its going to FEEL different to you regardless of the height because you're used to having to lean over the rail. There are some ways to simulate that. Probably the easiest - if you have a bar stool of about that height (or you could use a chair sitting on a box to raise the back high enough - set the chair seat under the table - the chair back against the side in front of you - and stand behind the chair back when you reach down and pick up the dice to shoot. Hey - it ain't perfect, but it's cheap.
