Tornado Foosball Tables
The origins of foosball are rather romantic. It was invented by a Spanish poet, Alejandro Finisterre. While fighting against the fascists in Madrid during the Spanish civil war, he was injured by a bomb. There were many injured children in the hospital with him, some who would never run again. Finisterre came up with the idea of a table football game that they could play. (European football is called soccer in America.) He patented his idea in 1937, but lost the papers while escaping from the fascist coup d'état.
Today, the compassionate poet's invention is a worldwide activity with global competitions. The official American-style table for tournaments is the Tornado T-2000. The playing field is laminated, and supported with extruded aluminum. The rods are made of .156-inch thick centerless ground, chrome-plated hollow steel. Counterbalanced men, split bearings and friction grip wooden handles assure optimal control.

We have other Tornado foosball tables as well. You may remember the Tornado Storm II, with marbled sides and black and yellow men, from Joey and Chandler's apartment in Friends. Even the budget-conscious Whirlwind II has centerless ground, chrome-plated hollow steel rods (.125-inch thick), a three-man goalie, boot-style levelers with shims, and friction grip wooden handles. Whether you want to train for a pro tournament or hang out and have fun, there's a Tornado foosball table for you!
