Apa 9 Ball Break Rules


Apa 9 Ball Break Rules

Tonight I’m playing in my APA 9-ball league.

So our team broke and the cue didn’t hit the head ball and a ball went in. The other team said that our player had to re-rack and their team breaks. In the rule book though it says that if it doesn’t result in a scratch then the same teams breaks again.

What’s the deal?

This question relates to the following billiard rules:

    APA 9-ball break shot / breaking rules state:

    To be a legal break...

    1. Players must break from behind the head string.
    2. The head ball or second ball must be struck first, AND
    3. At least 4 balls must be driven to the rails OR a ball pocketed
    4. The cue ball may not be shot into a rail before the rack

    If the break does NOT qualify as legal, the balls are reracked and rebroken by the same player.

    If the break does NOT qualify as legal AND results in a scratch, the balls are reracked and rebroken by the opposite player.

    So, on that scenario you described; Only if your player scratched would the opponent's team be allowed to approach the table to break.
