Definition of Cluster
Cluster is a billiards term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.
A group of balls lying close together, or actually touching, on the pool table's surface.

Clusters may also be purposely created by one player as a defensive play. If the player is shooting stripes, he or she may wish to cluster all of the solids so as to make a difficult situation for the opponent.
