Registration is required to compete.
The game of table hockey was invented in 1932 by Donald H. Munro Sr., in Toronto, Canada.
Stiga Games in Sweden are used in the table hockey sport administered by the International Table Hockey Federation.
The arcade version is called ‘dome hockey‘ or ‘bubble hockey‘, because of the large plastic dome that covers the playing surface in order to prevent the puck either becoming lost or stolen. The most popular of these ‘bubble hockey’ tables is Chexx (USA vs. Soviet Union) and its successor, Super Chexx (Canada vs. USA).
In contrast to traditional table hockey, the concept behind air hockey was initiated by a group of Brunswick Billiards employees in 1969. Their goal was to create a game played on a fully frictionless surface, an effect finally achieved by creating a constant cushion of air across the table’s top. The first air hockey game was released in 1972.
