I’ve got an older ‘Bar billiards’ table circa 1930’s. The holes in this table are 2-1/32 diameter. (2.031”) Bar billiards is played on a special bar billiards table without side and corner pockets, but with 9 holes in the playing surface which are assigned certain point values (from 10 to 200). There are eight balls for play - seven white and one red
Question: what dimension are the billiard balls?
Looking to purchase 7-white and 1-red balls. Also need the pegs (skittles) 1 blk, 1 red, 2 white. Please email your price for these items and estimate shipping charges to Wisconsin, USA (zip 54915)

Thank you for your reply. Sorry I tapped your forum. It is very difficult to obtain information in the States on Bar Billiards. Thank you for the 'Mercury Leisure' lead. Hopefully I will soon be playing billiards. Thank you again,
No problem. We are aware that a good many tables were exported to the United States during the 1980's - but into private hands, and as far as we know there are no organized Leagues - unless someone can tell us otherwise !
