standard set of balls for the snooker table consists of 15 reds,
6 colours and 1 white cue ball. The standard measurement of each
ball is 2 and 1/16 inch in diameter.
snooker balls were made exclusively from heavy ivory. Thankfully
these quickly became a thing of the past and were replaced before
the Second World War by lighter Crystalate balls made from the crushed
shin bones of cows.
balls were subsequently replaced by Super Crystalate balls, made
from entirely synthetic material. These were then replaced by the
Aramith balls utilised in today's game.
balls are ideally suited to the demands of the modern game, as they
are more reactive to spin and power shots, thereby presenting greater
opportunities for enhanced cue ball control.
