The 7 Best Mini, Portable and Tabletop Football Tables with Buying Guide
Last updated 1st October, 2020

Anyone who has played or even spectated a game of table football (known to many as foosball) knows that this table-top equivalent of the world’s favourite sport is an absolute thrill. Be it in outdoors in the sun, in a games room or at home table football brings players together for a piece of healthy competition the whole family can get behind.

However, many simply don’t have the space for a full-sized table, and this is exactly where mini, portable and tabletop versions come into play!

Why buy a tabletop football table?

Providing smaller alternatives, these tables are easy to store away when not being used, more child-friendly due to their form factor and more often than not weigh in at a lower price-point than their full-sized counterparts. But as with any product, there’s an absolute sea of choice! In this article we’ll be taking a look at the best mini, portable and tabletop football tables to help you decide which table will be the best for your players, space and budget.

Top 7 Tabletop Football Tables

1. Mini Kick Table Football Game

The mid-ranged Mini Kick Table offers one of the largest tabletop football experiences with a 3-foot table. Its firm, chrome-effect grips, 3-3-3 formation and its striking black-and-white aesthetic mean it will be right at home in any setting. Weighing in at 10kg, the table is portable enough, but may prove to be a little too heavy for children to set up on their own. Yet, given its form factor, this table offers a fantastic playing field for both adults and children alike.

Key features:

  • Size: 51cm (20”) x 94cm (37”) x 30cm (12”)
  • Material: N/A. Sleek black-and-white aesthetic, not weatherproof.
  • Weight: 10kg
  • Rod Type: Solid
  • Legs: Short removable standing legs.
  • Accessories: 2 footballs

  • Supplier: Liberty Games

2. Gamesson Striker II Foosball Table

The Gamesson Striker II offers a mini table football experience on any surface given its lack of legs. This means the table will sit flush against any table, floor or other surface. Such a feature is perfect for a portable foosball table allowing it to be easily stored away between play sessions. Pairing this with its large pitch size and lightweight design, weighing in at 6kg, it presents itself as a prime option for children and teens in a household low on space. Its tasteful black carbon-fibre finish will also help the table remain inconspicuous when placed away.

Key features:

  • Size: 41cm (16”) x 83cm (33”) x 21cm (8”)
  • Material: N/A.
  • Weight: 6kg
  • Rod Type: Solid

3. Global Gizmos Deluxe Table Top Football Game

As an extremely affordable option for a 9-aside mini foosball table, the Global Gizmos Deluxe table is certainly a mouth-watering option. Offering a relatively large play space in an incredibly light-weight package, it is certainly a good option to entertain kids or adults on a budget. Moreover, despite its small price tag it still bears the name of a specialist toy manufacturer, ensuring that you will be getting a quality product for the price. Along with this, its light wood-look aesthetic provides a bright tone which contrasts a few of the black-focused tables we're also sharing with you.

Key features:

  • Size: 37cm (15”) x 69cm (27”) x 24cm (9”)
  • Material: N/A.
  • Weight: 3.2kg

4. Roby Colour Mini Football Table

The Roby Colour Mini Football Table offers something unique, aimed at children between 3 and 6. It stands 75cm off the ground, has a good-sized playing field featuring 3 players per side, and packs a bunch of safety features including telescopic safety rods and an optional plexiglass cover to avoid little hands being caught and injured in the play space. The overall build quality of the table is exceptional, valuing aesthetics and practicality as well as its most standout feature of safety. However, weighing in at 17.5kg and being the most expensive table on this list, this premium kids foosball table will be a special buy for those who want extra peace of mind.

Key features:

  • Size: 66cm (26”) x 72cm (28”) x 75cm (30”)
  • Material: Plywood, plastic, metal rods, optional plexiglass cover.
  • Weight: 17.5kg
  • Rod Type: Telescopic safety rods
  • Legs: 75cm, plastic.
  • Accessories: 2 footballs
  • Price Range: £££

5. 5-in-1 Deluxe Wooden Games Table with Football Table

What’s unique about this table is that (you can tell by its name) it contains four other games to enjoy. In all, this small package contains play spaces for miniature versions of tabletop football, billiards, table tennis, backgammon and chess all to be played on any surface thanks to its flat bottom. Offering such a variety of games in one package is obviously a tantalising steal, but given its small form factor, it’s worth considering its main user-base as the extra-mini sports may not be suitable for adults. That said, having so many games in one small, portable and lightweight package is great for travelling!

Key features:

  • Size: 52cm (20”) x 32cm (12”) x 17cm (6.6”)
  • Material: Wood.
  • Weight: 6.26kg
  • Rod Type: Solid
  • Legs: None.
  • Accessories: 4 other games!
  • Price Range: £
  • Supplier: Amazon

6. Costway 27” Football Table Top

Built from high-quality, sturdy and lightweight MDF this table weighs in at an incredibly portable 4.5kg, making it easy for both children and adults to move around. Its relatively large pitch, ergonomic handles and intuitive score-counter make it a joy to use, and thanks to its legs being removable (although it can be a bit of a faff) the table can stand above a surface or sit flush to it. Ultimately this table is a great middle ground for price, size, portability, weight and user-base making it one of the best all-rounders on this list!

Key features:

  • Size: 74cm (29”) x 37cm (14.5”) x 24cm (9.5”)
  • Material: MDF, Steel Rods.
  • Weight: 4.5kg
  • Rod Type: Solid
  • Legs: Stable wooden legs.
  • Accessories: 2 Foosballs
  • Price Range: ££
  • Supplier: Amazon

7. Funtime Neon Table Top Football Table

As one of the cheapest, smallest and lightest tables on this list, the Funtime Neon is truly a portable foosball table. Not only this, but the table comes pre-assembled so the eagerly awaiting players can get kicking as soon as it arrives! Its unique neon green, blue and black colour scheme also provides a nice break from the norm of wooden-style tables we’ve seen throughout this list. Of course, given its form factor, featuring 6 players a side, may be a little too small for adults to truly enjoy. And its affordability means that the materials used aren’t the best-of-the-best, but for its price point, this mini foosball table is likely to bring a good number of smiles.

Key features:

  • Size: 51cm (20”) x 30cm (12”) x 8cm (3”)
  • Material: N/A
  • Weight: 2.1kg
  • Rod Type: Solid
  • Legs: None.
  • Accessories: 2 Foosballs
  • Price Range: £
  • Supplier: Amazon

Buying Guide

It’s likely that you’ll have found a table to suit your needs from the list above, but before buying there are a few factors worth considering which might impact your mini foosball table’s use.

What to look for when buying

1. Playing surface and storage space

The major benefit of having a mini or tabletop football table is of course that it takes up less space. Yet this also means it’s worthwhile being conscious of where you will play and where it will be stored when not in use. For playing, you’ll need at least one potential flat surface which doesn’t get easily scratched—as those table legs often find themselves wandering in especially competitive moments! And remember, if you are looking to travel with the table, you’ll need to make sure it fits in your vehicle.

2. Who is playing?

Adults and kids obviously have different wants and needs. If the table is being purchased for teens or adults the larger the table, the better. With children it becomes a little more complex, with size, safety features and ease of use all being factors worth considering. Ultimately, looking for the products recommended age will be a great indicator, but the younger the potential players will be the more safety features you will want to be considering.

3. Budget

Price is of course a huge factor in buying but always remember that cost is relative. Higher quality tables, made with more sturdy materials and sporting better features, will often come with a higher price tag—but as a result these tables will likely have a much longer lifespan.

But when considering price it is definitely easy to get caught up, so it’s always worth keeping your maximum price in mind (within reason!) and trying to stick to it.

4. Accessories

Any product can be enhanced by accessories or additional features. The most important for a foosball table is getting a good amount of balls out of the box—so you’re not relying on only one! Be sure to factor in the cost of some additional/replacement balls as these easily go astray! We recommend these foosball balls for the quality, affordability, and retro look.

Conclusion

Miniature, portable and tabletop football tables offer a unique opportunity to all age groups—allowing adults to play where and when they’d like and providing children with a foosball experience suiting their smaller form-factor.

Throughout our analysis of these top-tier miniature, portable and tabletop football tables we have consulted many sellers, products and reviews to narrow the list down to only the very best, making sure you'll have a great time with any of the tables listed above.
