With curved sides and geometric legs, the AMF Varsity is one of the unique foosball tables that we spotted. Designed by Sportcraft, it features a lighter colored wood veneer on the sides of the cabinet, short legs that match the black accents on the cabinet and metal rods with black handles.
Those handles slide out and move so smoothly that you’ll never again have a problem taking a shot or sending the ball back across the field.
Though it has the same four rods on each side that similar foosball tables have, this one evenly spaces out those rods to let more than two people play at the same time, and you can play in teams of two.
The surface of the model uses a smooth material to keep the ball rolling and moving more smoothly. Our helpful guide provides you with everything you need to know about the AMF Varsity before deciding whether to bring one home for your family.
Worth the Investment?
We think that the AMF Varsity from Sportcraft is worth the investment because it’s an affordable model that comes with features like a smooth playing surface on top and solid legs.
Goal boxes on each end feature three players mounted on one rod to help you block more shots, and each goal has a scorekeeper above it from keeping track of the current score. As this option is a little more on the expensive side, you may find yourself looking at some cheaper models.
We recommend the Atomic Pro Force, which has a mid-century modern look and the Harvil Beachcomber. Both tables feature manual scorekeepers and leg levelers.
Foosball tables are like shoes because one size doesn’t fit all, but we think that the Sportcraft AMF Varsity is one of the few products that really will fit in and work in most homes and with most players.
The smooth surface keeps the ball rolling as smoothly as it would on grass, and a handy ball return makes it easy to start the next game as soon as someone scores the winning goal.
Goal boxes on each end feature scorekeepers and a rod with three players to block shots. With a cabinet that looks like real wood and some chrome accents on the cabinet, it blends with all the other furniture in your home too. It may just become a focal point in your home.
