1. I missed the start of league. Can I still join?
Absolutely! Just reach out to Min ( or 650-704-7284) and let him know that you'll be coming next week, or even just show up the night of.
2. What about just dropping in for a week or two?
Yup. There's no commitment, just come as many times as you like.
3. I've never played any organized foosball, are there any rules I need to know?
We'll be playing with simplified rules at the beginning: No jarring and no spinning. As players become more comfortable, we'll introduce and enforce more rules, including: the ready protocol, time limits and 5-bar passing rules.
4. Will there by any teaching/coaching sessions?
We will plan to have a local pro join us one of these weeks and show us some basic skill sets. More information to come as we get our league under way.
5. Who counts as a beginner?
Absolutely no pros allowed, or any player who has attended a tour event. League director reserves the right to evaluate a player's skill level. We want to ensure that everybody can learn and have fun at the same time!
6. Do I need to bring anything to league?
Just your registration fee the first time you join us, money for the tables (there is a change machine on site), and an awesome attitude! Be ready to have some FUN! If you know about wraps and/or own some, bring them.
