8 Ball Corner Pocket! Here Are A Few Cool Pool Halls In Killeen, Texas To Check Out
Whether you're new to Killeen, Texas or just looking for a change of pace and new challengers, you'll find no shortage of pool halls around here. The question is, which ones should you visit first? I'm here to help with that.
Shooting Pool Is One Of My Hobbies
I have been shooting pool, for as long as I can remember. I received a miniature pool set for a Christmas gift when I was about 8 or 9 years old, and my love for the game was born.
As the year passed, I got older and started visiting the more "adult" pool halls.
These pool halls were where people smoked cigarettes, and at that time I couldn't stand smelling cigarette smoke. I got tired of coming home smelling like cigarettes, so I stopped playing completely.
The Point Of It All
I'm very extra and dramatic when shooting pool.
This is me:
And I'm a really unpredictable pool player.
Sometimes I'm the equivalent of a Harlem Globetrotter player on the pool table, hitting fancy impossible shots.
Above Average Pool Player
I can pull a lucky shot off (every 6 tries or so), or I can flat out not do good.
But I try really well!
I would be classified as just an above-average pool player.

According to the site, it's all things billiards.

Here are a few places where you can shoot pool so you too can test your "Uncle Phil" skills yourself:
