Rules of the Cue

Welcome to simply pool and snooker blog. We hope you enjoy it and feel free to comment or request other blog’s on any subject within the snooker table industry such as pool table hire.


Alec Brown was a pre-war and immediately post-war professional whose father ran the billiard room at the Piccadilly Hotel, London. He made a few miniature ebony cues, about the size of a fountain pen, complete with tip. Brown was playing at Thurstons on 14 November 1938, when the cue ball finished so awkwardly marooned amongst a bunch of reds that he could not play it by any orthodox means. He removed the tiny ebony cue from his pocket, chalked Its tip and nudged the cue-ball to play his shot. When his opponent protested, Brown argued that he was within the rules.

However, Charlie Chambers, resident referee at Thurstons. awarded a foul on the grounds that the implement was outside the spirit if not the letter of the law. This led the BA&CC to stipulate that a cue ‘must be at least three feet in length and conform to the accepted shape and design.
