Table Use for Business- An Overview

Whenever I think of foosball tables, I reminisce about episodes of Friends in Joey and Chandler’s apartment. “Good game” would be given by Chandler upon the end of a played against his roommate. The actors make playing the game seem so easy and I have wanted a foosball table since their first game. However, have you ever tried to play a game of foosball?

I was in a friend’s rec room one time, and he had a good foosball table. My one friend and I pretended to be Joey and Chandler playing foosball. Having never played before, I had no idea how difficult it was. Seeing the tiny ball, moving the players died to the side and having them kick forward and also acting as a goalie.

There are multiple factors in purchasing a table, including:

Budget: If you aren’t going to be playing that much, you shouldn’t be spending close to $1,000 or more. Personally, I wouldn’t spend more than a few hundred. Casual players like me can get away with a cheaper quality table, and that was one of the determining factors for me. As a casual foosballer at parties, a $100-$500 table could suffice.

Who’s It For?: When I bought my foosball table, I purchased it for my college friends and I. Knowing the people I was going to be playing with, I didn’t want to buy something too expensive. If you’re also a college kid, I wouldn’t recommend shelling out $1,000 unless you’re going to be forming a competitive and professional team. Always make sure to buy for the people who will be using it most and keep in mind if they’re rough, or gentle.

Table Material: My friends and I are a bit rougher, which is why I went for the durable plastic. I was afraid that a wooden table would be too easily scratched and something made of particle board would easily break.
