Table football or table soccer are other names that are commonly used for the recreational room sports game of Foosball. This game is similar to the game of soccer (football) but is an indoor game that is played with semi stationary characters attached to a horizontal rod in a larger box. The object of the game is to get the ball into the opponents goal; the team with the most points is the winner.
There is no standard size for foosball balls equipment but many foosball forums generally have the same standards across the board when it comes to ball sizes. The balls are actually sold in multiple sizes and weights. the ball size that is most commonly used is a 34.5 – 35mm sized ball. Balls that are 31.75 – 32mm are smaller (1.25″) and 38mm+ larger (1.5′) are more commonly used for tournament play.
