What You’ll Do
Chris’s Billiards hasn’t changed much since Martin Scorcese, Paul Newman, and Tom Cruise were there shooting their 1986 Oscar-winning film, The Color of Money. Now a BYOB, it’s as atmospheric as ever, with overhead lights piercing through the dim room and illuminating the billiard tables where you’ll meet instructor Pat Hays. During the pool lesson for beginners and intermediate players, she’ll cover the fundamentals of the game, including proper stance, aiming, and strategies.
Learn the Principles of Billiards
Instructor Pat Hays focuses on the stance and physical preparation needed to pocket object balls, as well as controlling the cue ball.
Practice New Techniques
After reviewing stance, stroke, and bridge, participants can practice what they’ve learned and receive coaching and critique from Hays.
Feast Between Games
Chris’s Billiards sells hot dogs and hamburgers, and is BYOB. After the lesson, students can rent tables to practice their play.
Pat Hays has been fascinated by pool since she was a child. She learned how to play the game by watching the pros, imitating the best players she could find, and taking lessons from the best instructors. When she noticed that Chris’s Billiards was home to the women’s pool league, she immediately joined, and soon was winning trophies, giving lessons, and serving as the president of the prestigious Tuesday Night League. Now she teaches classes through the Discovery Center and recruits new members for the very same league.
