In a game of billiards, you have the basic supplies that are fairly similar to a game of pool: the table, the balls, and a set of cues. You can easily play a successful game of billiards with these base parts, but you’ll have a more enjoyable time with a few more accessories. Here are a few of our top picks for billiard accessories you’ll want to add to your set.
- Chalk: Perhaps you’ve seen the pros use blue chalk on their cues before taking a shot. This chalk is an essential billiard accessory. You can rub it onto the end of your cue to add friction, so the cue doesn’t slip against the ball, causing you to take an accidental shot.
- Triangle: Just as with a regular game of pool, a triangle is a wooden table rack or sort of frame that holds the balls in place. This billiard accessory can be nice for setting up your balls before starting the game. It can also serve to hold your balls in place while a game is not in session, so they don’t get lost.
- Extra cues: Extra cues are especially essential billiard accessories if you plan to have lots of company over to play a game of billiards. That way, everyone can have a shot without having to share cues.
These are just a few of the billiard accessories you could add to your billiard set. There are other accessories for when you get more into the game, and we’d be happy to provide them to you. You can give us a call if you’d like to learn more.
