Cue Sports, more commonly know as billiards sports is the collective name of games involving the use of billiard balls, billiard table and cue sticks.

It is believed the game evolved from similar outdoor lawn games such as trucco and croquet. King Louis XI of France (1461–1483) had the first known indoor billiard table. Louis XIV further refined and popularized the game, and it swiftly spread amongst the French nobility.

The most popular present day international competitions include nine-ball, eight-ball, snooker, speed-pool and three-cushion. Although there are no cue sports in the Olympic or Commonwealth Games, the sport has been featured in a few organized multisport competitions including the 2005 World Games held in Duisburg, Germany, and the Asian Games in 2006.
