How Pool started their logo design journey

Company name

coolpoolspots.com / coolsnookerspots.com

Overview

coolpoolspots.com will be a worldwide online community and directory for people who love to play pool and snooker wherever they are. I´m a billiards enthusiast and when I´m travelling, I´m always searching for nice places to have a game which is difficult sometimes. So I would like to provide a platform where pool and snooker aficionados can share they´re favorite places to play with fellow billiards lovers who are travelling their area.
If you're new to pool, snooker and billiards in general, that's no problem. Just have a look at wikipedia to get an idea: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cue_sports

Since I know how important feedback is I will try to give as much feedback on your designs as I can.

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach

The people coolpoolspots.com is made for love playing pool or snooker, travelling and getting in contact with other friends of the game. They love great places to play where they feel comfortable, nice billiard halls, good playing material and so on. Therefore, the logo should illustrate the fun of playing billiards and getting to know new friends. This project is global, there will be places all over the world. There is no other platform like this.

Requirements

Since it´s a new product and we have nothing designed so far, you´re free to let your creativity flow. There are some things I would like you to keep in mind:

General

EDIT: I like clever ideas of illustrating the concept. A nice font and a billiard ball is not enough!

Although it should be clear that it's about billiards and not swimming pools, play with those concepts: map marker, people/characters, travelling, location, pool table, sharing places, meeting people

Please don´t make it too rational, cold, serious, technical. The logo should be fun and motivating. Pool and snooker are games where people get together and enjoy themselves. The logo should show this.

The URL coolpoolspots.com should be incorporated into the logo. Please provide another version with the URL coolsnookerspots.com

colors
You´re free to use the colors you would like to.

dimensions
Since the logo is mainly for the website, the format should be a rectangle shape for the head area of a website. (For example like the 99designs logo.) If you have a combination of a brand icon and a logotype (again, like in 99designs), that's ok, but it's not a must.

font
again, you're free. I like clear, crips fonts as well as some more artificial or handdrawn fonts. It should be readable, of course.

data format
Please provide an editable vector file, so I can make small alterations afterwards, if i would like to (ai, svg, pdf with editable paths are great). Please provide a CMYK and a RGB version. Please show how the logo will look like on a bright and on a dark background.
