best foosball tables for kids
Most of products that pass as ‘tables for kids’ cost under $200.
For adults I’ll try to just point at the best value for the money.
Kids, however, could play pretty much on any given (professional) table and be okay. But in most cases it’s just not fun for them, so one of my main criteria will be the visual appeal of the table.
The most important feature for children safety is telescopic rods, that don’t extend outside the playing cabinet of the table when the handle is pushed fully in. It makes a little chance of injury even smaller. Unfortunately it’s really, really difficult to find this feature in cheaper tables.
Yes, it’s a bummer, that the majority of manufacturers don’t put emphasis on this feature but that’s because tournament tables traditionally don’t come iwth telescopic rods. All I can do is to bring this fact to your attention.
And one last point: when I call any table from this category ‘sturdy’ that really means ‘relatively sturdy for such a low price’. I did my best to find high quality products, but in reality it’s close to impossible to do so when we’re talking about something under $200. I don’t want to discourage you, it’s just that I personally feel a bit guilty using words like ‘sturdy’ here and when describing tournament quality tables.
