You’ll need to find an even number of players — between 8 and 16 — before you start your pool tournament. Consider how many players you’ll invite to the game; the more people you ask, the longer the tournament will last. By using multiple tables and allowing matches to take place simultaneously, you can cut the total tournament time in half. Simultaneous play, on the other hand, will be limited by the number of pool tables available. Consider splitting the group into two teams if you have a larger group, younger players, or unequal skill levels. Playing doubles can help you cut down on your overall tournament time and even out any unfair age or skill level disparities.



Set up your brackets by gradually pairing opponents against one another. Winners advance to the next stand in a knockout or elimination billiards tournament, while losers are eliminated. This system will eventually reduce your player pool to just two who will compete for the winning title.

Consider a double-elimination tournament if you want to make your pool tournaments more forgiving or if you have younger players. Instead of being eliminated from the game, each competitor is allowed a single loss in this tournament format. Losers compete in a loser’s bracket, the winner of which will face the winner of the mainframe.

Please print out your arrangement or draw it on a large surface, such as a whiteboard, once you’ve decided on a suitable bracket style. This way, you and your guests can keep track of and visualize the progress of your tournament.


Pocket billiards is a generic term that is sometimes used and preferred by some pool-industry bodies, but it is a broader classification that includes games like snooker, Russian pyramid, and kaisa, which are not considered pool games. It is commonly referred to as “billiards” in most parts of the world, similar to how “bowling” is commonly used to refer to the game of ten-pin bowling.
