About Universal Billiards
Universal Billiards was founded in 1995 by Daniel McIntire with two goals in mind: curate the best selection of unique game room products and elevate customer service to a level our competition can't compete with. Today, he and his daughter, Ciarra, work tirelessly to meet these goals. With the help of their dedicated team, the company has seen promising year over year growth and feedback from customers has remained overwhelmingly positive.

"Mac" got involved with billiards manufacturing as a young man. In 1995, he founded Universal Billiards and grew the company to be a true powerhouse in a few short years. His easy-going sense of humor, creativity and tireless spirit continue to inspire our team.
