However, if you want to get a little better at the game so you can have a new level of enjoyment, there are some tips that can help. Use these billiard tips to boost your performance the next time you chalk up.

  • Don’t hit the ball hard if you don’t have to. Most of the time you barely need to hit the ball hard enough for you to hear it. Putting more force on the ball just increases spin, English and wrist movement when you don’t need it.
  • Try the ghost ball method where you place a ball next to the one you’re trying to shoot during practice. Lining up straight to the ghost ball makes learning angled shots much easier.
  • Keep that chalk handy! It might seem like it’s just for the pros, but chalk is essential.
