ECHO Athletics Lawn Billiards (GIANT Pool) is a new sport and entertaining game! It is a combination of pool and soccer. It’s the perfect combination of ball-handling, cleverness, and fun. The game is played in an oversized pool table (12ft x 24ft) with real soccer balls.
Everybody can play this game – kids and adults. You actually get to kick the balls into pockets instead of using a cue stick. Our sport is played on a giant billiards table that multiple players can walk on. All the rules are the same, except that you use your feet instead of a cue and the balls are replaced by soccer balls!
All the footballs retain the look of standard billiards balls but are obviously larger and lighter. The white striker ball is slightly heavier than the rest, just to make the game more interesting.
The sport is flexible with its rules though, only one rule is constant with 2 vs 2 – the ‘rule of Lawn Billiards’, with four players, players have the ability to play a shot twice. A player can make a pass to his/her partner, who can then kick the ball towards the pocket!
