Membership-based billiards club opens
There’s a new-old game in town. Madison 3-Cushion Billiards Club opened in July at 1337 Greenway Cross, #161, in Madison, just off Fish Hatchery Road. The club resurrects an old game that once was prominent at UW–Madison, according to Bob Keller, the 91-year-old founder of 3-Cushion Billiards and Keller Real Estate Group. Keller was a member of UW’s 3-cushion billiards team back in 1948.
“This is not pool!” Keller clarifies, noting that he played in the World Cup Tournament in 2003. The small, private club offers lessons, holds tournaments, and has four 5-foot by 10-foot billiards tables (no pockets) available for member use.
