15-Ball Rules


The game of 15-Ball is included because of its potential for improving our sport. The game is played by racking all 15 balls, breaking them open, and beginning with ball in hand. The game is played as “call shot” – players must indicate ball and pocket, and may choose any ball. Each ball successfully pocketed counts as one point with a perfect score of 15 points per rack. If a player scratches on the break, they still get to shoot with no point penalty, but must spot up any balls pocketed on the break. This is simple, straight forward, and everyone learns to play better in less time.


LX is 60 in Roman Numerals

In a competition match, each player shoots 4 rounds of 15-ball.  A player who has a perfect score of 60 will be celebrated, and a badge will be placed on their player profile.
