General Pool Rules Clarification

Jump Shots in Pool


I was told that the only way to legally jump the cue ball was by driving it into the table, not scooping it from underneath. Could you please inform me of the legal ways to jump the cue ball?




According to 3.26 in the BCA General Pool Rules, the only legal way to jump the cue ball is by causing the cue ball to rise off the bed of the table and forcing the cue ball to rebound from the bed of the table. Any miscue when during a jump shot is a foul.
