So lets take a look at the different accessories available.  


Snooker Cue Cases

So if you have invested in your own snooker cue you will need to get yourself a case to protect your cue in transport and its handy to store it in as well.

Cue cases are available for 3/4 jointed cues, 1 or 2 piece cues and even pool cues.

If you are just beginning to play Snooker and don’t own a cue yet, you might want to consider that some cues come with a case included which offers great value.

If you already own a cue you might want to consider this case below which looks great as well as protecting your cue. Always make sure that the case you are buying is suitable and your cue will fit!

For those hard to reach and tricky shots you really need a rest to help you. Cross rests are the most common rests and these are the general rests you will see in snooker halls.  They are basically a cue with a brass or plastic cross on the end which you can set your cue on and it allows you to reach the cue ball when it would be out of reach.  Again a must have if you have your own table.
