Correct option is B)

When a plural noun is a proper name for a singular object or collective unit, a singular verb is used and vice versa. In the given sentence, 'are a connection' is incorrect as 'billiards' is the singular noun thus, the singular verb should be used. 
It should be replaced with 'is a connection'. 'Popularly played' is the correct tense used. 
Thus, option B is the correct answer.
