In the Leisure format, at the start of a set the two players must agree to play “call your pocket”. If the players can’t agree to “call your pocket” then the players will play the set as “slop counts”. If the two players agree to play “call your pocket” then the following rules apply:
Calling a pocket is done by either, verbally announcing the designated pocket to the opponent or any shooter on the opposing team or by pointing at the pocket with your hand or pool cue.
It is encouraged that all balls be specified vocally to your opponent along with their intended pocket. Obvious balls and their respective pockets do not have to be specified, however, when performing a bank shot, a kick shot, a jump shot, a masse shot or a combo shot, the shooter must call their intended object ball and pocket.
If the shooter does not call their intended object ball and pocket when performing a bank shot, a kick shot, a jump shot, a masse shot or a combo shot, it is a loss of turn.
When calling your pocket, it is never necessary to indicate details such as the number of cushions, banks, kisses, caroms, etc. Any ball pocketed on a foul remains pocketed, regardless of whether they belong to the shooter or the opponent.
