Billiards Supplies, Pool Player Tips and Training. (Original post 1-4-08)

Where do you get your billiards supplies?

If you are into pool and billiards and you are like many players, you are always on the lookout for some cool billiard supplies. I am one of those guys who is running around the vending booth trying to purchase that product that I put off for the entire pool tournament. Now the vendors are packing up and I am trying to finally make that purchase.

I personally purchase almost all of my billiards supplies on line. I never find myself at the billiards store and it’s easier delivered to my door. (Check it out, that sentence rhymed.)

When you know the name brands and values, purchasing on line matches the quality and the convenience is fantastic.

I have been working on a website for about a year now that is all about billiards. There are many pages and articles about specific pool game related supplies. The home page of the site is

I recently set up a page which is pretty cool. It is a hub for live auctions and it is targeted to specific billiards supplies. I bought my last 2 pool cues from these on line auctions.

Check out the “Billiards Supplies Hub” Here.

Billiard Accessories. How many are there and what are they?

Billiard accessories is a pretty broad category. If you are in to playing pool and billiards then you have probably purchased some type of accessory in the past.

Some of the pool and billiard items which you could be looking for are billiards tables (pool tables), table covers, pool cues, billiard chalk, hand chalk, chalk holders, cue tips, table brushes, rack (racking balls), trays (carrying billiard balls), glue and clamps for repairing tips, sand paper, tip scuffers, tip tappers, tip shapers, billiard ball cleaner, training books, training videos, etc.

Above is a list of twenty different kinds of billiard accessories. We didn’t even cover the wide variety of mechanical bridges available or the aim trainers and other teaching products. Let’s not forget the table brushes and products for cleaning the chalk off of your felt.

How about pool cue cases and those clamps that hook to a dining table in the tavern or pool hall that holds the cues in an upright standing position?

There is a whole other grouping of billiard accessories where table repair is concerned. There is billiard cloth, adhesive for covering your table, staples, rails and rubber, and pocket inserts.

I did a search on Google for billiard accessories and came up with 834,000 results. Yes that is eight hundred and thirty four thousand. With all of these choices, how do we decide where to get them?

I make sure that I know what I am looking for. I read up on name brands and try to find some reviews. I then shop for price and a merchant that I can trust.

I prefer to buy most of my billiard accessories on line. I have been known to make several purchases from vendors at tournaments and billiards trade shows however.

I like to purchase on line, because it is laid back and I get the item delivered to my door. I almost never find myself in the billiard supplies store and I am always doing something on line. Buying on line is down right convenient.
