Table football rules of play
Aim of the game
The game is played until one of the teams has scored 11 goals. A ball that comes back out of the goal does not count as a goal.
Start of the game
Each new ball starts with the middle player on the 5-player bar. Both players should indicate that they are ready to start the game.
Whenever play is started (or restarted after a break or if the ball goes out of play), the ball must be touched by two players on the same bar. Again, both teams must indicate that they are ready to start the game.
Handling the bars
Rotating the bars is not allowed (max 270°). Collisions between the bar and the side should not influence the course of the game either. During the game, all hands should be on the handles.
If the ball is stationary in a place where nobody can touch it, the ball is taken to the nearest corner of the game.
Ball out of play
A ball that ends up outside the field of play is brought back into play to the team that went last.
If you are in possession of the ball, you must not release the bar where the ball is lying. You can ask for a time-out to release the bar. Each team may request 1 time-out per half of the game.
After 10 goals, the teams change sides. This way, every team gets a chance to set up. Changing places with your teammate is only allowed after a counter goal.
By long tradition, the loser treats the winner to food or drink!
