In pool/billiards, "to rack" means to set up the game by placing the balls into the triangle frame. What is the corresponding (technical) term in Japanese if any?

Is there a better way to express this? Alternatively I suppose 準備 and its synonyms would work to describe "preparing the game for play". But it's not specific to pool/billiards.

  • Good thing you clarified you weren't after the "chi chi" style rack! Feb 27 '12 at 11:09

Wiki says it is usually expressed like 「ラックする」「ラックを組む【くむ】」「ラックを立てる【たてる】」.

See also: ラック (ビリヤード)
