Pool and Billiards Tutorial Videos and Articles
Learning how to play billiards may look easy, but not really. You have to learn the fundamentals, the terms used, the correct grip, how to aim for a shot, the right control of the cue ball, and the right positions. In this article, you will know all of them not only through the helpful articles but also from the tons of instructional videos. Most of the video here came from the Billiard University (BU) Instructional DVD series, and Video Encyclopedia of Pool Shots (VEPS). Here, you will also learn the different billiard techniques, such as side spinning, kick and bank shots, jump shot, break shot, and masse shot.

There's a lot of information on this site. Besides news and events, you'll find pool and billiard classified ads, a photo gallery, general pool game information and live streams from companies broadcasting pool events. Included are upcoming pool tournaments, as well as informative articles such as: the pyramid puzzle, cue ball, side pocket, three ball pyramid, a practical 8-ball shot, a hard one-railer, watermelon seed, trapped, quarter on foot spot, quarter out of circle, pool tips, taking aim, the dreaded pool plateau and more. A lot of miscellaneous information, such as pool history, visionaries and innovators of the game, legendary players, significant moments, fun facts, a glossary of pool/billiards terms, recommended room sizes, and table and equipment specs.

Snookers Club
This is a place on the Internet for all things snookers and pool. It provides news from U.S. Open Championships and other tournaments, and professional news and United Kingdom amateur information. A tournament diary as well as links to local leagues and a forum to discuss snookers, including 8-Ball and 9-Ball, is also provided. A wealth of snookers and pool links are offered.

American Poolplayers Association
Request your copy of the American Poolplayers Association magazine. The American Poolplayers Association (APA) was founded by professional poolplayers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart in 1979 as the National Pool League, which became the American Poolplayers Association in 1981. The two realized the popularity of the sport, but knew that, different from other sports, there was no existing recreational league system. You must be a member of the American Poolplayers Association to do so. This website provides a request form to obtain your copy of the pool and billiard magazine.

World Pool-Billiard Association (WPA)
This is the official website of the governing body of pool. It provides current news about players and events and everything concerning the sport. There is rankings of the top players and information about world champions of various games—e.g., 8-ball, 9-ball, 10-ball, artistic pool, pyramid, straight pool and blackball—broken out by men, women, juniors and wheelchair categories. The site has a sports calendar and then information about current and upcoming events, as well as an archived section of past events. There is also very detailed information concerning regulations and world rules of play. And as you'd expect, there's detailed information concerneing the association itself.
