History of West State Billiards

Where It All Began

In 1946, Frank Spencer Ball founded West State Billiards in the city of Long Beach as a pool hall and billiard cloth wholesaler. He ran his business on three principles: to sell the highest quality pool tables and game room furniture available, to sell all products at great prices, and to provide exceptional customer service and support in a timely manner. These principles led to the success of this business venture, and West State’s dedication to them continued with his son, Harold Ball, who took over the family business from his father.

The continued dedication to these three guiding principles led West State Billiards to become the main supplier of quality billiard cloth on the West Coast and gain a reputation for its expert knowledge of Brunswick pool tables. From there, West State only continued to grow in reputation as the West Coast’s top supplier.

Change In Ownership

Harold Ball passed away in 2004, and the business was acquired by Brian Hoang in 2006. Under Hoang’s direction, West State relocated its headquarters and all operations in 2013 to a new location in Fullerton. Continued success saw West State expand beyond Orange County and now, with the acquisition of two new locations in 2021, West State has become the largest billiards and game room retailer on the West Coast.

Acquisition of Billiards & Barstools

Billiards & Barstools shares the same commitment to quality and customer service that makes West State so successful. Founded in 1989 by Darrell Meddings, Billiards & Barstools’ flagship store in Glendale began a long tradition of offering high-quality customer service and the finest merchandise. Like West State Billiards, Billiards & Barstools carried a variety of high-quality pool tables, game arcades, and game room furniture.

West State Billiards is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Billiards & Barstools locations in San Marcos and Newbury Park.
