Snooker - Tables, Balls, Cues, Accessories - Nanaimo
Calais Spas and Billiards in Nanaimo is your Vancouver Island destination for snooker accessories and supplies. You may be an avid snooker player or a beginner who is even unsure how snooker is any different from pool! Whatever the case may be you can find cues, cases and high quality aramith snooker balls right here in Nanaimo.
Snooker is commonly played on larger tables (6’ x 12’). Unlike pool, all snooker balls are solid colours. The winner is determined by a point system. Red balls are all worth a point and coloured balls are worth their face value. Players alternate between hitting the red and coloured balls. Red balls stay in the pockets, but the six coloured ones come back to their starting positions on the table till all the red balls are 'potted'.
Snooker cues are different from pool cues in both tip size and weight. Although any cue can be used to play either game, a Snooker cue has a narrower tip and is usually between 15 and 17 ounces in weight. If you are looking for a new snooker table, cue or accessories, contact us at Calais Spas and Billiards in Nanaimo and we will happily help you find everything to suit your needs.
