The billiards competition at the 2022 World Games took place from July 13 to July 17 at the ballroom of the Sheraton Birmingham Hotel. It consisted of three events, "Carom - 3 Cushion", "Pool - 9-Ball", and "Snooker".

The same three disciplines of billiards (or cue sports) have been part of the World Games since the 2001 event in Akita, Japan. The Birmingham edition marked the sixth time billiards was included as a regular event at the World Games. All three games are played under the auspices of the World Confederation of Billiards Sports, headquartered in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium.
