Alternative Pool Table Games

We supply pool tables to a variety of venues across the UK, now we want to ensure you’re making the most of them!

Take a look below at some great pool games you may not have heard of. If you would like any of the rules sending out to you to inform your customers please just drop us a note here.

One Pocket Pool

1. One Pocket Pool – For the Pros

  • – Balls are placed into the rack randomly
  • – Each player picks a pocket
    • – This is the pocket they will have to pot their balls in to for the entire game
  • – 1 point is scored for every ball potted into their nominated pocket
  • – When a player reaches 8 points they win the game
  • – Players lose 1 point every time they foul

Find out more about One Pocket Pool here.

Jump Shot Pool

2. Stunt Pool

  • – Here the same rules as 8 ball are applied apart from the fact that straight shots are not allowed
  • – Players can only make shots using the below
    • – Swerve Shot – here the cue is held almost vertical to create a large amount of spin on the cue ball
    • – Jump Shot – here the cue ball must bounce over an obstructing ball
    • – Bank Shot – Any shot that uses the cushion
  • – Feel free to add in your own “stunt shots”

Left handed pool player

3. Opposite-Handed Pool – for a laugh

  • – If you’re bored of playing regular pool then why not give this game a go
  • – Ask each player to use their cue in the opposite way
  • – This will make the game much more difficult ….and a little funnier


Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you require any more info, here at Bob Rudd we have all the tools to help you get the most out of your pool table. Take a look at our pool table range here.

Beat the Buzzer – Duke of Albany, Washington

Last night saw us unite with Brian “Buzzer” Halcrow at The Duke of Albany in Washington as part of our plan to increase the pool offering for our customers.

Buzzer is former world No.8 and UK No.3 in World Eight Ball Pool, he has used his extraordinary talent to travel the world and now he’s travelling the UK with us!

At Bob Rudd we’re keen to increase the emphasis placed on pool and gaming zones of pubs and bars, we see the value in bringing people together in a community venue and encouraging them to participate.

The event last night was a great success and saw regulars from the pool team playing Buzzer alongside pool amateurs who were just up for a laugh. What would normally have been a quiet Tuesday night turned in to a fun filled evening’s entertainment.

If you are interested in hiring Buzzer for the evening please just get in touch – helena.rudd@bobrudd.co.uk and we’ll set it up, you’re certainly in for a night to remember!
