Outside of acting and writing, Lita’s greatest passion is playing pool.

This passion began in her early teens when her family moved into a new home with room for a pool table (a dream come true for her father!). Having friends over to play became a regular afternoon hang out and her competitive spirit was sparked by playing against her siblings at all hours (a bit of a nightmare for her mother!).

When Lita spent a semester of college abroad at Harlaxton College in Grantham, England and was introduced to snooker, her billiards passion was fueled exponentially. Living in Chicago after graduation, she taught her “Girl Squad” to play 8-ball and they soon dominated on Free Pool Tuesdays at their corner pub. Lita discovered a very specific kind of satisfaction that comes from being, at first, underestimated by a male opponent only to sweep the floor with him and decisively win a match. Seeing her friends’ self esteem soar as their skills improved and they began kicking ass at the table was an even greater and more gratifying victory.

Ladies Night Billiards Lessons

This program is created to share that same sense of victory and empowerment with as many women as we can reach. Pool is a gender equalizer kind of game. It does not require power, strength or size to win. As Papa Lopez first taught his daughter, “pool is all about finesse.” 

Lessons focus on introducing the fundamentals of the game to beginners and strengthening the skill set of intermediate players in a fun and supportive atmosphere. We offer lessons exclusively* to female-identifying individuals in an ongoing effort to combat toxic masculinity and smash the patriarchy. 

Lessons cover:

  • Finding YOUR bridge, how to support the cue stick in a way that works best for you.
  • Proper shooting stance and form.
  • Basic ball control and shooting strokes, introducing the difference between
    • Follow through stroking
    • Stop shots
    • Drawing the cue ball backward.
  • Aiming and angles, how to make the ball go where you want.
  • Banking and using the rails.
  • Game winning strategy and defense.
    • Playing 8-Ball & 9-Ball
  • And more!

We meet up at a local pool hall, favorite neighborhood bar or a private home for one on one lessons or a group gals night! Not based in the Los Angeles area? Contact me for out of town travel rates.

A winning record…

Lita joined the American Poolplayers Association (the world’s largest billiards league) in 2014 and immediately started racking up wins and trophies. She was honored to be on a team that made it all the way to the National Championship in her first year with the league. She won three out of four of her individual matches at Nationals (barely losing the one by just one point) and she’s damn proud. Her mission is to get back there again someday and go undefeated.

Ladies’ Night Billiards Lessons Reviews…

Fun for all skill levels!

Lita does a great job explaining the physics and geometry of pool, basic shots, and strategy and makes everyone feel comfortable no matter their skill level. It’s stress free fun with drinks and snacks to boot. I highly recommend!
