Out Of Play is a billiards term that is a part of Billiard Technique Terminology.
Balls that are out of play are balls that are not readily accessible for making in either player's scoring pocket. A ball may be out of play because they lie above the head string, or partially in one of the four non-scoring pockets, or because they are tied up in a cluster preferably still behind the head string. Obviously there are degrees of out of play, and with a big lead in the count, the more out of play the better.
