Randy Knight, Shawn Gipson open pool hall in Ada

Billiard enthusiasts are excited a new pool hall has opened in Ada.

K & G Billiards, 317 W. Main, recently opened the doors, welcoming pool players to a non-smoking and alcohol free environment. K & G Billiards opens at noon everyday and remains open until “whenever,” co-owner Randy Knight said.

Knight and Shawn Gipson originally opened the pool hall in Tishomingo, but decided to move to Ada.

The pool hall has eight pool tables and a snooker table. Many of the pool tables are the seven-foot bar size tables. An eight-foot and nine-foot table are available for those who prefer the larger table size.

Knight said a variety of activities are offered for pool enthusiasts. K & G Billiards sponsors American Pool-player Association (APA) teams. Pool tournaments are held twice a week. Mondays, at 7 p.m., 9-ball tournaments are held. Fridays, at 7 p.m., 8-ball tournaments take place. Both tournaments adhere to BCA rules (Billiard Congress of America).

Knight said a special event is upcoming. K & G will be sponsoring a “Coors Light shootout” Dec. 1. A $10 entry fee is required and the winner goes to Tulsa for a chance to play for $5,000.

Knight said the cost of play is $6 per hour plus tax.
