They may have inlays of exotic materials. The handle wrapped in fine linen, leather or other grips. Pool cues range in price into the thousands of dollars. Personal pool cues are very valuable. Leagues have been formed to play pool in a recreation type format, gathering friends and family together for a little friendly competition. During play one or two people play while four to eight people wait to play. The people waiting need someplace to store their valuable pool cue. Pool halls, bar rooms and recreation halls usually have pool cues available to play. They are stored in a pool cue rack usually attached to the wall and sometimes on the floor. The pool cue racks are often a distance from the table on which you will be playing or if the pool cue rack is close it is occupied. My invention allows players waiting their turn to stand their pool cues upright in a secure pool cue rack that can be attached to any chair, stool or column; keeping a teams pool cues together and safe between matches.
