Human Foosball

Human Foosball Game

Human Foosball is the life-size version of the popular table game played worldwide. A huge wood arena has 4-foot tall wood walls, ensuring continuous play and great spectating. Each player holds on to a pole stretching width-wise. Like the toys in the table game, teammates can only move side to side within their specific zones, avoiding physical contact. Teams compete on each side of the 40-by-20-foot field using an official- size soccer ball to score goals. Foosball Table Human Foosball.

This life-size remake of the game is a blend of playing indoor soccer while mounted to a shish kabob. We have seen a variety of materials used to construct this game over the years from elaborate wood craftsmanship to large inflatable jump houses, but there is always one common theme — fun. Everyone likes to join a team and be competitive, which makes human foosball a great fit for team building corporate events all the way to children’s birthday games.

The game takes the tabletop version of the sport to the max and makes it closely resemble the sport it originated from, soccer.

 

 

 How to Play & Rules

The game is very similar to foosball in that two teams are connected to rods so they can only move laterally across the court instead of up and down like traditional soccer. The ball is served between the two opponents in the middle of the court and players must kick the ball to other players on the same rod or advance it in an attempt to score a goal. Games are played for 15 minutes.
