Billiards has been played by kings and commoners, presidents, ladies, gentlemen, and hustlers alike. Evolving most likely from a lawn game similar to croquet, the earliest references to the game in Europe date back to the 15th century. Today, anyone thinking of billiards inevitably associates it with the image of a dark wooden pub, dim lighting and cigarette smoke – a cliché that ought to have been outdated by now. After all, it is not only a professional sport, but also a leisure activity enjoyed by millions of people of all ages around the world.
