The size of the table dictates the difficulty, notes About.com. Expect a moderate difficulty with an 8-foot table. A smaller table can cause ball congestion, while larger tables can cause the game to take a longer time to complete. Smaller tables are much less expensive, notes Recroom.com.
Leveling a table is also a tedious task, making a warranty worthy of consideration. Green or red are common felt colors, with artificial felt the more economical purchase option.
