When I think of pool I think of a few different scenarios: one is in a dimly lit pool hall with smoke filling the air, the other is flipping through channels and finding the one station that’s playing a professional tournament where it’s dead silent and everyone is staring with anticipation of the players next move, and lastly the most endearing is family memories around a pool table.
This post is dedicated to the latter. Pool is by far one of the most family friendly games, dare I say an all American family game. It’s a game that can be played at all ages young and old. It may be a little more challenging to teach those who are younger but I found a great article and book here if you are really struggling to teach your youngster how to play. The most important part is to create a game where everybody wins and that’s by having fun. Whether you are a player beginning the game or returning after a long absence it can be enjoyed and understood by all. The great thing about pool is that it’s more of a finesse sport the ultimate recreational game. It’s more mental than anything else which may be a bit harder for those who are older and younger to comprehend but no less challenging to others.
