Snooker Ball Set



Snooker balls, like the balls for all cue sports, are typically made of phenolic resin, and are smaller than pool balls. Regulation snooker balls (which are specified in metric units) are nominally 52.5 mm (approximately ​2 1⁄15 inches) in diameter, though many sets are actually manufactured at 52.4 mm (about ​2 1⁄16 in.) No weight for the balls is specified in the rules, only that the weight of any two balls should not differ by more than 0.5g. Some recreational sets (which are usually not measured metrically) are ​2 1⁄8 in. (about 54 mm) up to as large as pool balls, at ​2 1⁄4 in. (about 57.2 mm); larger ball size requires wider pocket openings. Miniature sets also exist, for half-size home tables. There are fifteen red balls, six “color” balls (yellow, green, brown, blue, pink, and black), and one white cue ball. Usually none of the balls are numbered, though the six color balls often are in the US, where they are easily mistaken at first glance for pool balls (the design is similar, but the numbering does not match pool’s scheme).
