Official table football rules
Most people have tried to play table football before, and the rules are actually quite straight forward. But let’s clarify the most important aspects of the game once and for all.
Before starting the game, all players have to agree upon the number of points required to win. Normally, the amount of points needed to win is 10. In this case, the game continues until a team reaches a score of 10 goals.
To decide who serves the first ball, rock-paper-scissors can be used. When serving the ball, the ball needs to be passed between at least two player figures to establish two-ball possession. This avoids goals immediately being scored from the 5-man rod which can be unfair.
When the ball connects with a team’s goal it’s a point, even if it bounces back onto the field again. Once a goal is scored on a team, they are the once to serve the next ball.
To regulate too slow ball possession on the field, the teams can determine a maximum time for player figures to have the ball. A good idea is to differentiate between maximum ball possession depending on the different rods. For example, set the maximum time at 15 seconds for the 5-man and 10 seconds for the remaining rods.
Remember that lifting, pushing, bumping, and other interference with the football table is not allowed when playing!
Spinning in table football
There’s no official rule about whether spinning is allowed or not in table football. However, most teams agree upon banning spinning when playing. There are both advantages and disadvantages to spinning. Many people believe that spinning is too random since the player has less control of the rod and which direction the ball is passed.
Good luck on the football field!
