World Eight Ball Pool Playing Rules

1. Objective: The objective of World Eight Ball Pool is to pocket all seven of your designated balls (either solid or striped), followed by pocketing the black 8-ball, while also legally pocketing all other balls.

2. Equipment: The game is played on a standard pool table with six pockets and a set of 16 balls – one white cue ball, seven solid-colored balls, seven striped balls, and one black 8-ball. World Eight Ball Pool Playing Rules

3. Break Shot: The game begins with a break shot, where one player strikes the cue ball from behind the headstring, aiming to scatter the balls and pocket at least one ball. The break is considered legal if at least four balls hit a cushion or one is pocketed. World Eight Ball Pool Playing Rules

4. Open Table: After the break, the table is considered “open,” meaning that neither solids nor stripes are assigned to a player until a legal ball is pocketed. The player who pockets a ball on their first legal shot then becomes that group (solids or stripes). World Eight Ball Pool Playing Rules

5. Legal Shots: A player must always strike their designated group of balls first. Failure to do so results in a foul. Additionally, at least one ball must be pocketed or hit a cushion after every shot, or it will be considered a foul.

6. Fouls: Fouls result in various penalties, usually giving the opposing player ball-in-hand, where they can place the cue ball anywhere on the table before shooting. Common fouls include pocketing the cue ball, not hitting any ball, hitting the opponent’s ball first, and failing to hit a cushion.World Eight Ball Pool Playing Rules

7. Pocketing Balls: Players must legally pocket their designated group of balls (solids or stripes) before attempting to pocket the black 8-ball. If a player pockets a ball from the opposing group, it is considered a foul, and the opponent gains ball-in-hand.

8. The 8-Ball: Once a player has legally pocketed all their balls, they can attempt to pocket the black 8-ball to win the game. However, the 8-ball cannot be pocketed until all of their designated group of balls have been successfully pocketed. If the 8-ball is pocketed prematurely or fouls are committed during the shot, the game is lost.

9. End of Game: The game ends when one player legally pockets all their designated balls and subsequently pockets the black 8-ball without fouling. The winner is then determined, and a new game may begin.

10. Miscellaneous Rules: World Eight Ball Pool also includes various additional rules, such as calling shots (specifying which ball and pocket will be targeted), spotting balls (if they are knocked off the table), and determining a winner in case of a tie or a stalemate.

It’s important to note that these rules serve as a general guideline for World Eight Ball Pool, and specific tournaments or organizations may have slight variations or additional rules in place to ensure fair play and uniformity.

The sport of Eight Ball (or pool, as it’s commonly called) developed in Australia, from very humble beginnings.

Whilst various forms of Pool had been played for a number of years, the catalyst for Eight Ball (pool) in Australia, was the introduction in approximately 1965, into Hotels and Clubs throughout the country, of the smaller 7’ x 3’ 6” eight ball table.
