Most of us love to play pool when we are at The Bridge, but few of us know how to play it well. All that can change if you participate in this program, led by a League Operator of the Illinois chapter of the American Poolplayers Association. Pat will explain how to hold the cue properly, how to begin a game with a break, aiming, and shot selection. Students will spend the first 2 weeks practicing at The Bridge. For the last week students will travel to Pockets, a local billiards hall, where they will compete against each other. Get ready to own the pool table on Friday nights.

This program is a two-day series that builds on itself each day. Please ensure you are able to attend both days when you sign up and make note of the program end times (Thurs., September 27th from 4:00-5:00 & Thurs., October 4th from 4:00-6:00). 

*For this program on Thursday October 4th, students will travel in The Bridge Bus to an offsite location. They will be going to Pockets Billiards, located at 13430 S Cicero Avenue in Crestwood. Must have ‘Permission to Transport’ indicated on Student Membership Application (check your Student Portal to make sure).
