The table would be on 4 castors, and they would sit on carefully leveled square tracks with rounded corners. This way the table could be moved from corner to corner in a small room so there was always room to make a shot.
Since the balls would move when the table was moved, either a magnetic system
or some kind of cover to keep the balls in place would be needed, unless people took care moving it.

||This table and track combo would be easily movable when needed. 20 times in a game if nescessary, which conventional tables dont offer. These wheels wouldn't need locks as you would be on the opposite side of the table from the wall as it would be held in place by the corner itself.
||I think the key here is how you're going to lock the balls in place. Any real ideas?
||if you dont have big enough rooms you dont deserve to play billiards, in my opinion!
||The table could move electrically so that it would never accellerate or decellerate fast enough to move the balls.
||The surface of the table underneath the felt could
consist of a grid of many small, square "pins", which fit
together smoothly. Under normal operation, they are all
level to create the playing surface. When you need to
move the table, they could sink slightly where the balls
are to form an indentation, keeping them in place.
