sports snooker and pool and billiards# How big does a round table need to be to seat 12?

**Round dining table**size for

**12**. With a diameter of 8 feet (244cm) you can comfortably fit 10 people, or squeeze in

**12**with slightly less elbow space, while you

**would need**around 9 feet in diameter (274cm) to spaciously sit

**12**people.

Consequently, how big does a round table need to be to seat 10?

**Tables** are typically 36 inches **wide**. If the chosen **table** is less than this, the end may not be **wide** enough for a setting, in which case the **required** length must adjusted. To **seat 10** people, with four on each side of the rectangle, the **table** must be 96 inches **long**.

Size (Diameter): | Oval & Rectangular Will Comfortably Seat: | Round & Square Will Comfortably Seat: |
---|---|---|

4 feet (48 inches) | 4 people | 4 people |

5 feet (60 inches) | 6 people | 6 people |

6 feet (72 inches) | 6 people | 6 people |

8 feet (96 inches) | 8 people | Not a typical size |

Simply so, how much space do you need for a 60 inch round table?

**You** want to have 24″ of aisle between **tables**. To compensate for chairs, **round tables should** be set 54 **inches** apart, and rectangle **tables should** be set **60 inches** apart.
