Foosball tables are a nice option for home rec rooms, garages and patios because they are smaller and more affordable than say, a billiard table. The Tornado Tournament 3000 foosball table is a great example of a nice table for home play. This table is well made but compact. It has nice features like access to internal parts, sturdy players, and three tournament style balls.

However, this may not be the perfect table for every foosball player. To help you find the right foosball table, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite products on the market. And to help you further narrow the options, we’ve provided a buying guide with product features you should look for.

Our Best Foosball Table For 2023

Tornado Tournament 3000 Foosball Table

Tornado Tournament 3000

Our favorite foosball table is the Tornado Tournament 3000. This is a tournament quality foosball table, that is also a great option for your home rec room. The Tornado is heavier than many tables, at 355 pounds. This added weight increases stability and is indicative of the quality of construction. On this table you’ll enjoy chrome-plated rods with comfortable non-slip handles, smooth action, and better play control than you’ll find on other tables. The Tornado also has traditional style scorekeepers for easy record of games and score.

What We Are Looking For

Whether you are shopping in person or online, you’ll want to consider a number of product features that make a foosball table a good option. Not all tables are great for every person or space, so knowing what to look for when you are shopping will help you find the perfect table for your home and your style of play.    


There are two parts of the table that you need to think about when it comes to material. First, you should consider the playing surface of the table. This is usually the part of the table that most people focus on because it makes the greatest impact on play. Most tables are made with laminate or melamine surfaces. Both are fine and do a good job of providing a smooth playing surface. However, for tournament grade tables or higher end tables, you’ll find laminate. Laminate is smoother and typically increases play speed.

On some lower quality or lower priced tables, you may find smooth plastic surfaces. These aren’t great because the markings that are added to the table don’t stick as well to plastic, and you’ll find that they come off over time.

The second part of the table that you need to consider material of, is the players (or foosmen). These come in a variety of materials, shapes, and colors. When it comes to shape and color, you’ll have to decide which you prefer. Material on the other hand can make a difference in how your table performs and the quality of play. You’ll most often see foosmen made of plastic, steel, and wood. We would avoid plastic if you can, they are light and don’t work as well. Steel is our preference because the players are heavier and they won’t get dinged or dented over many rounds of play. 


As with any large item you’re putting in your home, you’ll want to start by measuring the size of the space where your foosball table will be set. Then, you can start shopping for a table. Most full-size tables are between 48 and 56-inches long, 34 to 36-inches tall, and 29 to 31-inches wide. There are of course smaller and larger options. You’ll need to consider the size options that fit best in your space. You may also want to consider the size that is best for who will be playing. If your table is for your kids, you may want a shorter table or table top option that is easier for kids to reach.   


This is the only part of the table that you will actually be interacting with, so picking a table with nice, comfortable handles is an important consideration. Traditionally, you’ll find foosball tables with plastic or wood handles. These are great for durability in pubs and arcades, but aren’t really that desirable for a home table.

Our handle preference is rubber. Rubber handles are comfortable to grip, provide a bit of extra control for aggressive play and they just feel nicer. Look for rubber grips that are ergonomic for an even more comfortable experience.


There’s not a ton to say about the rods of foosball tables, but there are some considerations. First, rods come in steel or chrome construction. Either material is fine. The real consideration is hollow versus solid. Hollow rods are lighter and make play easier. If your table is going to be in a smaller space, or you want to make it safer for small children to be around, look for a table with telescoping rods. These are nice because they push into the table when you’re not playing, so you don’t have to worry about running into them or your small child hitting their head.

The 10 Best Foosball Tables Review 2023

1. Tornado Tournament 3000 Foosball Table – BEST CHOICE

t2 table

What We Liked

  • Professional grade construction
  • Heavy-duty legs for better stability
  • Customizable goalie configurations
  • Certified for professional tournament competition

What We Didn’t Like

  • Ball service drop doesn’t have a cup to catch the ball
  • Table is very heavy
  • One of the most expensive tables you’ll find

Our pick for the best home foosball table is the Tornado Tournament 3000. This table is designed for professional players, but is also a great table for the family that loves to play foosball. 

The Tornado is just one of five tables on the market today that is certified by the ITSF for competitive play. It is an amazing table and is well worth the money. The table is constructed from high quality, commercial grade MDF so it will easily hold up to a ton of wear and tear. The cabinet comes in two pieces so you can easily access the inner workings of the table should a ball get stuck.

The high quality construction doesn’t end with the cabinet on this table. The rods are made from hollow steel rods that are chrome plated for shine and smooth play. The players are counterweighted for better control and more rapid fire hits. The ergonomic handles are comfortable and are slightly rough on the outside for better grip and control.

One thing to be aware of if you are considering this table. Besides being one of the more expensive options it is also one of the heaviest you’ll find. You will certainly want help setting up this table or moving it in your room.

2. Carrom Signature Foosball Table

What We Liked

  • Robust and adjustable legs
  • High quality materials and construction
  • Reasonably priced for the quality of material

What We Didn’t Like

  • The player quality doesn’t match the rest of the table
  • The handles aren’t very comfortable

Perhaps you aren’t really in need of a professional grade table, but you don’t want to buy a cheap foosball table. The Carrom Signature foosball table is a good combination of quality and price. It is one of the higher priced tables at this level, but we do think it provides you with everything you need for a great game of foosball.

The Carrom Signature is made with a 1” thick wood cabinet that is set on sturdy legs with easy to adjust levelers. When properly adjusted this table is exceptionally stable and shouldn’t move much even with aggressive play. The rods are also of good quality and the players are made from quality materials so they are long lasting and resist denting.

While we love the polished looks and solid construction of the Carrom Signature foosball table, it is far from being a professional grade option. We like this table best for intermediate players or for the leisure player that is willing to invest a bit more to have a great looking table in their home.

3. Valley-Dynamo Tornado Elite Foosball Table

What We Liked

  • Heavier steel rods.
  • Dual ball return that allows for single player practice.
  • Upgraded counterbalanced players

What We Didn’t Like

  • The Elite is the most expensive table offered by Tornado.
  • Weighs a lot.

The Tornado Elite foosball table is another great offering from Tornado. This table is a professional grade table that comes with upgraded features for a more attractive and durable table.

The Elite foosball table has some of the nicest features of Tornado line of foosball tables. The victorian cherry laminate on the ⅕-inch thich wood cabinet makes this table an easy fit into any decor. Combine that with the heavy-gauge metal rods with high quality counterbalanced players, and you are set up for an amazing foosball experience. The Tornado Elite steps up the elegance with solid wood handles for comfortable play.

The Tornado has a ¾-inch laminate playing surface for smooth action across the field. The playing field is marked with the Tornado logo and traditional foosball table markings. The biggest difference between this table and others is the upgraded player foot that has more cross hatching and a square instead of angled sides for better ball control.

4. KICK Legend 55″ Foosball Table

KICK Legend 55

What We Liked

  • Counterbalanced players without any added effort
  • Can be configured for one or three goalie arrangement
  • The Legend has a lifetime warranty

What We Didn’t Like

  • Rounded legs make this table a bit larger than other options
  • The included balls aren’t great quality
  • Table is heavy

A great option for advanced players that want to upgrade their table is the KICK Legend tournament size foosball table. This 55-inch table is great for improving your play, but is also one of the more uniquely designed foosball tables on the market. Given the quality of material and construction of this table, we think this table is a great investment and a good value.

The Legend is constructed of heavy-duty MDF and features a 1/2-inch laminate playing surface. The Laminate surface is smooth, allows for high speed play and doesn’t have many dead spots. The players included with the Legend table are counterbalanced from the manufacturer so you don’t have to do anything additional to keep players from blocking shots.

Knowing that foosball games can get intense, the thick legs of this table are fitted with rubber surfaced levelers. Not only do these allow you to perfectly level your table on any floor surface, but the rubber base keeps your table from moving and scratching flooring.

All around this is a good table. You may want to invest in a better quality ball however. The balls that come with this table leave something to be desired.

5. Tornado Sport Foosball Table

Tornado Foosball Table

What We Liked

  • Elegant mahogany exterior to fit with any home decor
  • Good quality rods and handles
  • Leveling feet adjust height and alignment

What We Didn’t Like

  • Players aren’t counterbalanced
  • Price is a little high for the quality of the table.

The Tornado Sport is the mid-level option in the Tornado line. This table features many of the details of construction and materials that you can find on the other two levels in the Tornado line.

The Sport version comes with a 1-inch MDF cabinet and 0.75-inch playing surface. The exterior of the cabinet has an attractive mahogany laminate finish so it looks great in any room, office or pub. The Sport table is perfect for families with younger children since the adjustable legs allow you to not only perfectly level the table, but also increase or decrease the height of the table as needed.

Like other Tornado tables, the Sport offers end ball return to keep the play moving with minimal downtime. The hollow steel rods move smoothly for easy play and better control of your foosmen. To further improve play control, the rubberized handles are comfortable and provide plenty of grip.

6. Valley-Dynamo Tornado Classic Foosball Table

Valley-Dynamo Tornado Classic

What We Liked

  • Mid-level table comes with counterbalanced players
  • Relatively easy assembly
  • Solid steel rods with roughed wood handles

What We Didn’t Like

  • Only has a ball return on one side of the table
  • Quality difference between the Sport and the Classic isn’t much

The Tornado Classic is the best selling foosball table in the Tornado line. This mid-level table is perfect for the player that wants to fine tune their skills for intense competition at home or in tournaments. 

The Classic from Tornado features a robust 1.5-inch black laminate cabinet for long lasting durability. The ¾-inch thick playfield allows for smooth and rapid play, while also resisting scratches and dents. This table fits between the Elite and the Sport version of the table with upgraded rods, counterbalanced players and wood handles for a higher quality and more responsive level of play.

7. Giantex 3 in 1 Multi Game Combination Game

Giantex 3 in 1 Multi Game Combination Game

What We Liked

  • A great multipurpose table for families
  • Great for garage, game room or kid’s playroom
  • Lightweight construction
  • Reasonable price

What We Didn’t Like

  • Not stable enough for aggressive style play
  • Initial assembly is a bit complicated

If you are looking for a more versatile option than just a foosball table, then our pick for the best multisport table is just what you are looking for. The Giantex 3-in-1 combination game table offers you three fun games in one table.

This table allows you and your family to enjoy pool, foosball and slide hockey all in one table. Switching between the games is simple, but does require a couple of adults. Each table is its own top that locks down using easy to connect hooks.

This table is the perfect table for casual play, and for families with younger kids. While it is plenty sturdy for home use, this table doesn’t stand up well to more aggressive levels of play. The table is pretty lightweight and assembly is fairly straightforward.

Keep in mind when purchasing this table that while this combo table is fun for families, and is a decent quality, you’re not going to get the best quality features in any of the tables that you would from separate tables.

8. Hathaway Matrix 54″ 7-in-1 Multi-Game Table

Hathaway Matrix

What We Liked

  • Fun way to enjoy a larger variety of table games
  • Fits nicely in most spaces
  • Comes with all the necessary equipment for all seven games
  • Fairly affordable for a 7-in-1 game table

What We Didn’t Like

  • Table doesn’t have good storage for all the tiny pieces
  • Not good for aggressive players

If you really want to have the most versatility from your game table, but still want a good foosball table at the same time, then check out the Hathaway Matrix 7-in-1 game table. This table has all of the fan favorites all in one package.

The Hathaway Matrix is a compact game table that fits nicely in smaller game rooms or garages. This table gives you seven classic games on an easy to switch table. You can easily enjoy ping pong, slide hockey, foosball, pool, backgammon, checkers and chess.

While this table is fine for adults, it really is made for kids. We found that it was fairly easy to switch between the tables, with the exception of the foosball table. This one was a bit bulky and awkward to set up. Assembly of the table is fairly simple with easy to follow instructions. The table comes with all of the accessories and parts that you need to start playing as soon as the table is assembled.

9. Hathaway Playoff 4’ Foosball Table

Hathaway Playoff

What We Liked

  • Perfect size for kids
  • Smaller cabinet is perfect for kids rooms or small game rooms
  • Smaller sized handles are easier for small hands to grip

What We Didn’t Like

  • Could be made of better quality materials
  • Not super sturdy
  • Graphics are kind of distracting

We do like Hathaway’s line of table games, so we’re adding one more to our list. The Playoff Foosball table is the perfect, compact foosball table for families that love to play, but don’t have space for a full size table.

Weighing in at only 51 pounds the Playoff table is a 4-foot foosball table that while small has all of the features of a larger size foosball table. The cabinet of this table is made from good quality engineered wood and alloy steel for durability but without the bulk. The table is the perfect height for younger kids and is perfect for helping them learn the skills of foosball.

If you aren’t keen on the size and quality of the foosball table included with the Hathaway 7-in-1 table, this is a good step up. The Playoff table is mid-way between lower level kids tables and standard tournament style tables. It has all of the features of a tournament table but in an affordable, kid sized package.

One of features that we like about the Hathaway Playoff foosball table is the graphics that are used on the table. Instead of just a plain cabinet around the playing field, this table looks like a soccer stadium full of people.

10. MD Sports 48″ 2-in-1 Combo Table

MD Sports 48 2-in-1 Combo Table

What We Liked

  • Easy to switch between games, even for kids
  • Foosball table is fully assembled out of the box
  • Smaller sized table is great for compact spaces

What We Didn’t Like

  • Cabinet and tables are really “plastic-y”
  • Not stable enough for aggressive players
  • Pretty small for adult players.

So if you want the joy of a multipurpose game table, but you don’t want seven or even three options then the MD Sports 2-in-1 combo table is a good pick. This table is a good quality foosball table combined with a small size billiards table. 

The best feature of this table is that assembly is minimal. The foosball table comes fully assembled with all of the players in place. All you have to do is install the legs on the table and you are ready to start playing. 

Switching between the foosball table and the pool table is really easy. The table turns in place, you don’t have to remove anything or worry about lifting heavy parts to go from foosball to billiards and back. This easy switching is also great for kids, who may want to play without the assistance of mom or dad.

The MD Sport 2-in-1 table comes with all of the accessories you need for both foosball and billiards. This great table also has a storage pocket on both ends of the table for holding billiard and foosball balls, and other game accessories.
