Rules Of The Game

A question from A. Finnie – “Where can I get the complete set of rules of Billiards on the Internet?”

The rules of snooker can be quite complicated and cause argument – so for your convenience list of URLs leading to rules pages which should contain the information you need:

Snooker God’s Homepage
A thourough list of rules here, although they are a little incomplete due to copyright restrictions.

Rules Of English Billiards
Details of how to obtain a hardback copy of the rules.

There are also copies of the rules available in Italian, French, German and Flemish.

The WPBSA website where the rules can normally be found is currently offline. However, the mailing address for the WPBSA is :
