Outdoor Foosball Table Reviews:The latest materials allow foosball tables to be taken outdoors and used in backyards. Outdoor foosball tables have marine plywood cabinets, waterproof glue, anti-rust treatments, and more. Most are priced at just over $1000 and hold up quite well in outdoor environments. You see them at summer camps, outdoor rec areas at companies and in people's backyards. Two manufacturers stand out in this category - Kettler and Garlando. Both are European made and designed with durabilty in mind. If you are going to spend $1000+ for an outdoor foosball table, you want it to last. Some people take regular foosball tables and use them outdoors - which is fine. Unfortunately they are not meant to handle any moisture, so if they get wet they can get ruined. If you want to use your foosball table outdoors and not worry about maintenance, go with an outdoor model. The models we will look at are the Garlando G-500 Weatherproof Soccer Table, the Kettler Weatherproof Indoor/Outdoor Foosball Table, and the Garlando G2000 Outdoor Foosball Table.
Choosing an Outdoor Foosball Table - The key factor when considering any outdoor foosball table is quality materials. You'll want a table made with marine plywood, plastic laminate, waterproof glues, nylon bushings and fade resistance paints. If the table is going to hold up outdoors, it will need high end components that can withstand moisture and relentless sunshine. The Kettler Weatherproof Foosball table features a weatherproof resin for cabinet construction and a glass playing field. The all weather durability is what owners appreciate. Customers comment on the glass playing surface which ensures fast play. The Garlando G-500 Weatherproof Soccer Table is a best seller with leg levelers for stability (good idea for outdoor use), waterproof and washable coatings, and chromium plated telescopic rods. The Garlando G-500 is considered 'sturdy and and easy to assemble' by many customers. Owners repeatedly mention how solid the materials and construction are. Whether you are buying this for a company game room or outdoor family fun, the table takes abuse and holds up well in the elements. The players are counter-balanced and the poles are heavy-duty. Most tables come with a cover - something we tell all our customers to use. No sense in allowing extra moisture to get onto the table if you don't have to. Look for tables with rust-resistant hardware, dual ball returns, and a scoring system. Assembly is usually much more straight-forward on the high end tables. Typically you are looking at 1 hour or less compared to the 2+ hours that cheap tables require. View all outdoor foosball tables here.
