Billiards emerged sometime during the 15th century. It evolved from a Northern European lawn game that resembles modern croquet. The billiards table design borrows many elements from its outdoor roots. For instance, the green felt simulates grass just as the rails, often referred to as banks, act as river banks or perimeters for boxing in the playing field.
Popular billiards games like pool and snooker are traditionally for two players. While you can partner up and play doubles, alternating shots makes it difficult to maintain a strategy. Not to mention, when playing with an uneven number of players balancing the teams becomes a challenge.
Billiard tables come in many sizes to accommodate different game styles. For instance, snooker uses an 11’ 8.5” x 5’ 10” table. Conversely, pool tables measure in at 9' x 4’ 5”. Regarding this smaller size, there are two variants—pocketed and pocketless. Pocketed billiard tables suit standard games like pool whereas pocketless tables are strictly for Carom.
