Definition of Inning
Inning is a billiards term that is a part of Game Rule Terminology.
An inning refers to a pool player or doubles team's turn at the billiard table. An inning may include several shots, but always ends when the player either wins the game, misses a shot, safeties, forfeits, or fouls.
There are normally several innings in a frame, unless one player runs the table. However, there are some games where a player's inning is exactly 1 shot regardless of the result or the intent of the shooting player.
