Welcome to Alan's Foosball Page

I'm not really planning to put much on this page except a few links to some foosball sites and what they offer. Also, I'll put any major tournaments I've placed in.

Foosball Heaven

This is a good place to get brackets if you're running a tournament.

Bonzini USA

This is the official website in the US for the Bonzini (French style) foosball table. I play in weekly tournaments on this type of table. If you're interested and you live somewhere near Raleigh, NC, check out the POWERKICK website. This is 'our' tournament website. Beginners are welcomed!

A little bit more on the Bonzini table...it's a lot of fun, but has a smaller player base than the Tornado style foosball table. The biggest reason for this (regardless of what you may hear) is the price. When bars/parents/fraternities/etc are looking for a foosball table, and they can get a Tornado for 1/2 to 2/3 the price of a Bonzini, they normally go with the Tornado style. I recommend playing on all types of foosball tables...in addition, a lot of the tournaments for Bonzini are local, so you'll have the opportunity to play in many tournaments if you play on a French sytle table in the Raleigh area.

Tornado

This is a tornado site I found...deals with tables and parts as well as local tournaments. Unfortunately, it looks like the closest around here is in Greensboro which is about 2.5 hours from here.
