When you have already booked the room, the only things you have to put on are some comfortable sport clothes, sport shoes, take the squash racket (similar to tennis racket) and the rubber balls. The game is played by 2 or 4 people in a covered court. Never forget to worm-up not only for your physical fitness but it is important for the ball to get wormed as well.
This game is similar to skittles. Skittle pins have to be pulled down with a heavy bowl with 3 holes created for the fingers on it. To play this game special shoes are needed and they can be rented at the skittle ground. It is a frequently played game in American films and the hobby of Fred and Barney from the Flintstones.

- The matter of the game is to pocket our balls anticipating the other player.
- When we have pocketed all of our balls, the aim is the black ball to pocket. Pocketing the black ball we have to announce before the hole where we want to pocket the ball in.
- If we managed to pocket the ball to the previously announced hole then we are the winner. If the ball went into another hole then the other player is the winner.
