Choosing a Foosball Table
This company was founded by foosball enthusiasts who share a passion in improving the quality of foosball playing for consumers. After studying dozens of tables on the market through critical eyes of an educated consumer, we identified many areas of design and manufacturing we can improve upon in our quest to build tables with rich features and quality material that can live up to our un-yielding standards of User-friendliness, Playability, and Durability. Tips for choosing a foosball table include figuring out who will use the foosball table by age and height, choosing a safe foosball table, choosing light rods, grippy handles and the right lubrication, field surface and ball service, and wiggling men on the rods. A section on what to look for, in addition to folding foosball tables is also included.
Texas air hockey website features the latest information about air hockey, including air hockey news, air hockey rules, air hockey tournaments, air hockey leagues, air hockey locations, links, Texas rankings in air hockey, USAA rankings, member pages, polls, stance and grip, tables parts, controlling the puck, forums, air hockey player profiles, air hockey photos, downloads and more. Most tournaments are double-elimination, and the bigger tournaments have "Spinoff tournaments." What that means is that if you get eliminated from the main tournament, you then compete in a tournament bracket with all of the other players that got eliminated at the same time as you did. This serves two purposes- the players get more match play for their money against players of roughly the same skill level, and it helps to determine the overall ranking of players who "tie" because of where they finished in the main tournament. In local tournaments (also called "Weeklies"), there aren't Spinoffs, but there are always practice games that are played before and after the tournament, allowing players to hone in their skill and get warmed up for the tournament. Weeklies usually last 3 to 4 hours, and are a way for newcomers to get to know the Air Hockey veterans.
