Welcome to the billiard, pool, and snooker glossary of terms. This is the definition of Slide as it relates to cue sports. You can also view the entire billiard dictionary

Definition of Slide

Slide is a billiards term that is a part of Pool Table Terminology.

Especially on new cloth, the tendency for balls that strike a cushion to open up and lengthen on their rebound angle on tables with brand new cloth. Apparently over time, chalk and grit collects on the cushion cloth, so balls tend to grip a tiny bit more on older cloth than they do on new.

See: new cloth slide, sliding ball for more on the meaning of "Slide".

Slide - Usage

I hate this table, the slide is crazy.
