Every person has an internal desire for sports. A few people might express it obviously, whereas others rarely have time to immerse into one. At the same time as there are different options for enjoyment, trends are becoming obvious. Foosball tables are a great way to have fun at home, amidst the other games.

Foosball replicates the same mechanics as soccer when it comes to playing the game. There are no clear indications about the origin of the game or the word. However, it is being speculated that the game was originally played in Europe. Just like all other games, different variations of foosball have come into existence over the period of time. A Swiss companynamed Kicker were the earliest producers of foosball tables. Initially, these tables were hardly known but they gained a lot of popularity after the World War II. Apart from being an exciting indoor game, foosball tables are also used to improve hand-eye dexterity for battle veterans in need of treatment. Even today, most people play the game in order to improve their eye-hand flexibility.

There are different variations of the table; however all of them have a same basic design with a cabinet,four legs, two ball returns as well as 8 rows of plays. While choosing your foosball tables, you must pay a lot of attention to the size of the cabinet, since it should be heavy enough so that it doesn’t move during the game. On the other hand, the cabinet should be flexible enough, so that it could be easily moved during vacuuming and cleaning. As far as home plays are concerned, anything above 150 lbs should be good. Professional foosball tables range from 200 to 400 lbs. these tables cannot be moved that easily and provide a lot of stability during games. Most professional players have a tendency to shift slightly on the bars. These players are kept in place with the help of compression bumpers on these professional tables. Such tables also possess reinforced stress points that are tested with ball speeds greater than 100 mph. The rods are easy to move and long-wearing. In addition, there is a 3-man goalie option which translated into full-field game play.
