Why does the type of ball make such a difference in a game of Table Football?
It’s all about ball control and enhancing the level of skill in the game. Each table has a particular type of ball which suits it better in terms of playability depending on the shape and size of the players and the pitch surface. For example all 5 of the International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF) Official competition tables have different balls.
Cork Balls (old) Vs. ITSF B (new)
Many Baby-foot, Bonzini, Renee Pierre players will have discovered the game using cork balls (mostly in France) instead of plastics one generally found in the UK. The cork ball allowed a level of control through pinning which was far beyond what was achievable with plastic balls and therefore became extremely popular and giving “baby foot” such a great reputation. Since 2007 the “ITSF b” has taken over as they allow the same level of control but are much more durable in keeping their round shape and most importantly are much heavier. This increases the speed and fun factor of the game dramatically. Without a doubt official competition balls, offer a far greater gaming experience than the cork ball alternative.
Can I use an “ITSF b” other than on a Bonzini or Rene Pierre?
Yes, but there might be one better suited. If you are not sure, don’t hesitate to enquire.
