What to Consider When Measuring Your Space For a Foosball Table:
Understanding how much room size or square footage you will need in your bar, basement or game room is important so you can plan your space to fit a foosball table in properly. Just like when you are trying to measure for a pool table, you need to factor in enough space for people to actually play the game table and not just fit it in the room. The last thing you want to do is buy a table, set it up, and then find out that you don't have enough room to pull the rods back without hitting the wall.
Average Foosball Table Dimensions:
Most standard, full size foosball tables are about 2 1/2 feet wide by nearly 5 feet in length. A regulation sized foosball table is 30 inches wide, 56 inches in length, and 36 inches tall. Remember, in order to make room for people to actually play on the foosball table, you need to account for and add about 3 1/2 to 4 feet on each side of the table width to be comfortable when playing a game. Especially for people who use the proper foosball stance while playing. Measure your space for the proper dimensions of 10 feet wide by 5 feet in length in order to ensure that you have enough room to fit your table.

Additional Space Considerations:
There are a couple additional things you may want to factor in like if your table has a side ball return or an end ball return. Side ball returns are nice because you can push the table closer to the wall. People will not have to retrieve the ball by reaching around the back ends of the table.
