By Jim

June 26, 2020


Pool cues for women are professionally crafted and designed, it’s not just about the colors and designs. Women’s pool cues are designed to be shorter than regular cues and some come with extensions for additional reach without table bridges.

They can come in a range of prices all the way up to very expensive cues.

We have a great article on how to choose a pool cue.

The typical fun game of pool has often been a man’s game - but recently women have been taking it up in droves, so much so that there is now special equipment made.

This is an ideal cue for beginners who want to have a classic and elegant cue. This model does not compromise its quality.

Starting from the 15th century, women enthusiastically started entering the game. There has always been at least one woman who professionally played pool, from May Kaarlus to Ruth McGinnis, who could beat almost all men, to Dorothy Wise, and Jean Balukas. 

Up until today, a huge number of professional females are making their name in the sports industry.

These women may be the reason why a separate organization called the Women’s Professional Billiard Association (WPBA) has been established. With more than female players dominating the game, the demand for women’s cues has become higher.

So, if you are a pool shark and looking for a cue of your own, then take a look at this list of budget-friendly yet high-quality women’s pool cues and then read how to hold a pool que stick.
