2024 Reviews: 6 Great Snooker Chalk Holders/Pouches…
SnookerZone’s Chris Gaynor continues the hunt for chalk pouches/holders with magnets and there are many “branded and unbranded” ones.
So far, the best chalk pouches are the ADR 147 and the Dragon Cues soft leather style chalk pouches, which are great if you want to put a couple of chalks in. There is another one that we’re waiting for review.
If, however, you’re just looking for a belt clip style holder for square or round chalk, then it’s recommended the clip-on belt clip – (no 4 in the pic) which came with a rounded and square chalk holder to put onto the magnetic clip. It clips easily onto your pocket and the chalk is secure. Mark Williams has a “branded” version, as does BAIZE MASTER. SEE AMAZON…
The retail website Temu has some great deals (sometimes far cheaper than Amazon) on some snooker accessories and you can get items like the belt clip (no 4) for under a tenner.
Some magnetic clip-on holders aren’t very “magnetic” and this can be an issue when playing as the chalk holder keeps falling off. The belt clip (no 4) in pic is the best clip-on (opinion).
SnookerZone’s Chris Gaynor also recommends the Q-Card Multi-tool (the final image in the pic) It simply goes in your pocket and you can place your chalk on top of your pocket and it will stay there. That’s been reviewed on this website.
Another difficulty for holders is finding ones that cater for the Taom or round chalks. The clip-on one in the pic (no 4) is ideal because it has a round case that comes with the belt clip and it enables those who like using Taom or rounded chalks the ability to use those.
It also has a protector on top, so when you’re not using it, the chalk is protected – whether you’re using the square or round chalk.
What does everyone like using a pouch or a magnetic holder?

The three-time World Women’s Champion Ng has now claimed 19 ranking tournaments on the World Women’s Snooker Tour during her career so far and her triumph in Albania is one of the toughest earned so far, according to the WWS.
With a strong field of players behind the top 10, it’s only a matter of time before there is a changing of the guard on the circuit.
