Listed below is information about local foosball action in Alabama including known popular foosball table locations along with foosball tournament events and the eventual collected resulting information, all of which, creates our Alabama Foosball Program. Information is usually updated during the first five days of each month-if not before; however, all is subject to change at any moment--you should check back often for possibly updated information. I would also suggest that prior to making a long drive to participate, you should first contact someone "in the know" to get an idea of current activity status. Sometimes the turnout and player participation varies. As a result, the weekly events are usually notification status, which means an announcement is circulated when a potential for substantial player participation is expected or when someone has committed to being present for pick-up games and/or is intending to coordinate the scheduled event with enough interest. Now a days, the regular participants will communicate via group messaging methods to predict player participation status prior to the events. Be "in the know", join the group messaging notifications process—submit contact preferences [HERE]. .....Otherwise, follow [ALABAMA FOOSBALL PROGRAM ON FACEBOOK] for those notifications.

ALABAMA FOOSBALL PROGRAM..... foosball tournament notes & announcements:

* At this time, the weekly events are notification status, which means announcements are circulated via [ALABAMA FOOSBALL PROGRAM ON FACEBOOK] and/or group messaging methods when a potential for substantial player participation is expected for a or when someone has committed to being present for pick-up games and is intending to coordinate the scheduled event with enough interest.
* I don't want to invite players out to play foosball tournaments that are potentially not going to finish and/or are finishing unreasonably late. Unless otherwise announced, the tournament playoff format is double-elimination bracket-play with matches determined by the best of 3 games played on the winners side of the chart, while only 1 game played on the losers side. However, in the case that the tournament is deemed at risk of running late or past the business closing time, the tournament director shall dictate changes to the playoff format that is needed to obtain an appropriate finishing time. Since the double elimination tournament format creates the potential for a fair amount of foosball to be played in order to reach a winning team, the tournament coordination process needs to be time-efficient. Participating players should help the process by being on time for the events and then promptly available and ambitious to play their matches when applicable. I don't want to spoil the social enjoyment part of the foosball player gatherings but the priority should be about playing foosball. Many may have to juggle priorities with work and family in order to create their potentially limited opportunities to play foosball in this way. All pre-tournament pickup games and/or between-match practice-play involving the tournament foosball tables should end immediately upon the presents of the players that are to be involved in the matches due up to compete. Please do not hold up the tournament playoff process.
*I'm not always present to coordinate the scheduled foosball tournaments as much as I was in the past. In my absence, there's usually someone dictated to handle the tournament directing duty and, if not, the players do a great job collectively handling the process. Ultimately, it helps greatly to have a consistent process in coordinating the tournament events. I want to share, for those interested, the process one can expect when I make it out to coordinate a particular tournament: I'm expecting all interested participants to arrive the tournament location at, or just prior to, the scheduled tournament time. Upon which time, I will determine if enough participation exists and will then begin excepting sign ups with a collection of entry fees. I usually won't close the entry opportunity until at least 15 minutes past the tournament time allowing a short grace period for potential late arrivals. My goal is, at 15 minutes past the scheduled tournament time, I want to "draw-it-up" w/creating the tournament chart while, as soon as possible, calling the affected players/teams to the foosball tables to start playing matches.
*Late arrival entrants will be allowed, but only as applicable of two ways. You can request to be included in the tournament team charting process and I'm ok with doing so and will also hold off calling your matches allowing you as much time for arrival as possible but without delaying the tournament playoff process. Alternately, you can simply show up as soon as you can. I will then allow you entry to the tournament at the appropriate spot on the chart. You will be allowed to participate accordingly as qualified under one of the allowable options such as iron man, buddy system, or Mr. Recruiter. Be advised, I won't hold up the tournament waiting for you to arrive. Any unreasonable delays in tournament play by any team/player will be subject to proportional forfeiture processes.
*Can't make it on time? Get here when you can... Players unable to make it out for the tournament time are encouraged to arrive whenever you can. There's always the potential you can get in the tournament action. In the case someone is competing iron man that has declared to except the first available player as a partner. Or maybe there is still an opening on the chart. If nothing else, a potential for participating some pickup games once the tournament has played out to the point when an open table becomes available.
*Do you want to learn how to play foosball? Best advice is get involved. Learning and improving your skills playing foosball will happen quickly with experience playing foosball competition. Many of our already experienced foosball tournament players would love to help you learn and improve your foosball playing ability. The Spot' DYP tournament and with it's added challenging strategies that it presents has proven to be an effective new player development platform. Load up all your foos-friends and bring them with you, all are welcome to participate. For those that prefer, foosball playing lessons are available for anyone interested.
* Due to the varying skill levels of the local players participating--along with an interest in creating an inviting atmosphere for the "beginner" and/or "new" player participation--the popular weekly tournament format is the spot-in-advance draw-your-partner(DYP) tournament. The format dictates the possibility of spot advantages. For example, according to a projected "level of experience" of a team of players paired together compared to the experience level of their opponents, sometimes the format dictates one team having to score additional points in order to win a particular game during competition while the other team only has to score the traditional 5 points in order to win that game.
* During the Programs' events we will allow a protection circumstance for rule violations committed by players with limited tournament experience and those who are not yet accustom to playing by the official rules of play. The spirit of the rule violation protection procedure is to allow new players some flexibility when it comes to the rules while participating in the Programs tournaments. In other words, we don't want to discourage new players from participating our tournament events simply because they are unfamiliar with the rules of play, or perhaps their style of play may conflict a simple rule or two. We will encourage players to play by the rules but, for those that need, we will allow a grace period that will allow them to compete according to their style of play while gradually learning to play according to the official guidelines of play.
Check out the foosball tables in Hanceville, Alabama where has often been a hot spot for foosball in the past. OUTBREAK GAMES is a shop specializing in card and board games and now has two very nice Tornado foosball tables set up and will serve as a location to coordinate foosball tournaments. We've already played a few tournaments at the site and have decided to make it an EVERY WEEK foosball gathering. Make plans to join us on Sunday evenings for "Ala-Amateur only" and "spot'advance type" tournaments at 4pm. Anyone can play, hope to see you there. [PHOTO] [2] Pictured is players competing in the open doubles final of the 2019 North Alabama Open tournament-Shannon Coley & Keith Bates vs Bruce Stancel & Todd Brooks.
The 6 Pockets Bar & Billiards is now set up to become the new host of the Program's "EVERY WEDNESDAY" foosball tournament activity as of February 2019.
Competition of the North Alabama Open was recently presented at the "6 Pockets" location and several teams from surrounding areas turned out for the multiple event foosball tournament. Twenty-two players entered the open singles event where Randy Raposo, traveling from the B'ham area to compete, remained undefeated during the event earning the first place title. A couple of players out of Mississippi captured the open doubles title-Shannon Coley & Keith Bates. The photo shown is of the two teams playing for the championship win of the open doubles event where Shannon & Keith outlasted the come-back efforts of the Chattanooga,TN team, Bruce Stancel & Todd Brooks, in a two-match finale. Eleven teams had entered the open doubles event. Additional results are listed above.
The EVERY-WEEK tournament effort will remain, at this time, on a notification status--which means a text, or email, message will be sent to those that have requested to be informed when a turnout is expected and/or when someone will be in attendance as coordinator of a potential event. There are two or more Tornado foosball tables on location regularly at this time. Be sure to watch the schedule and announcements for periodical special events. Thanks...Rodney
I often use the back side of scrap paper to print tournament charts used on location for the foos-tournaments these days. I have a large stack of used paper that I take from which includes old foosball tournament flyers and the similar. Sometimes while using these charts what is printed on the other side grabs someone's attention. I thought I would share this one today because it took me back to fun memories of a few years back with the foosball action that we had going on at that time. This page happens to be a page that was included in one of the mail-out newsletters that I use to distribute to players via postal mail that included the tournament schedule, results and so forth--before we used the internet. This was a distribution during the summer of 1998. Notice the locations listed where we played and the tournaments that were scheduled. It turned into a fun "flash-back" as I passed the page around the tournament room. Some remembered the time period and some did not... See [OLD NEWS]. Pictured is an old photo of Bama foosball players: Ernie(Toby)Todd, Leigh O'Quinn, Terry Armstrong, & Big JOHN.
A Blast from the Past! Be sure to check out the Leigh O'Quinn photo collections that I recently added: [LEIGH O'QUINN BLAST FROM THE PAST]. Long time "Alabama Great" foosball player out of Tuscaloosa, Leigh O'Quinn, recently gave me permission to share some of his collection of photos that were taken back in the 1980's. Included are photo's taken during a foosball tournament he and Cindy Head coordinated during the early 1980's at a foosball location in Bessemer, Alabama.
The long-time foosball tournament location for the Alabama Foosball Program in Birmingham, The Break Restaurant & Billiards, sold the property and closed it's location back in November of 2018. I was recently in the Five-Points-South area where it was located and noticed that the building has already been totally demolished and removed making room for a new high-rise building to be built on the property. I mention because, I want to let those interested know that the Break owner mentioned plans to re-open the business in a different location. He also stated that he'd like to include the foosball tables but said that it would be at least a year before the new location will be ready.
As of June 2018, The Cullman Bowling Center is closed for a major remodeling project and the foosball tables have been removed for the process. Management has stated interest is to keep the foosball Program once the remodel project is complete if possible. My fingers are crossed since the property improvements will create a favorable atmosphere for the foosball activities that we've enjoyed at that site for so many years. The business improvement plans include a restaurant/bar creation. Looking forward to potentially continuing the tournament program in Cullman once the Cullman Bowling Center re-opens for business. Thanks for your patience during this period.
The Cullman Bowling Center did re-open for business; unfortunately, no room for foosball at this time.
Also, I recently removed the foosball table that was on location in Montgomery at Ric'n Moes.
IN MEMORY OF.....Shortly after I started playing foosball back in the very late 1970's, I became interested in creating a Angel competitive opportunity for my friends and I, and for all those in my area that enjoyed playing the game at that time. Eventually, I was encouraged to expand my tournament promotional efforts into other areas of Alabama and ultimately into the surrounding states which became an effort that I referred to as our Southern Foosball Program. Along with this project came an opportunity that I cherish, I had the privilege of meeting a lot of people of whom share the similar interest as I in this unique game/sport of foosball. Along the way, special friendships have developed and an expanded community of foosball enthusiasts exists as a result. Periodically, I receive the dreaded notifications about a fellow foosball player that has passed away. Regretfully, I usually want to share this information among the foosball community. With all due respect and condolences, I would like to keep the memory of these beloved individuals among us as we continue. Please see: [IN MEMORY OF]
Thanks, Rodney Jenkins

If you're reading this you'll probably agree that foosball is a very unique game. It can be very fun, and some people will say that it can be addictive. In most areas throughout the Southeastern USA it's not easy to find places where you can walk in and find a foosball table with experienced players available for games. It's been my suggestion that foosball players should try to establish a location where they can designate days and times for enthusiasts to show up and all can then satisfy their craving to play foosball. In fact, that's exactly the principle that lead to the creation of this Southern Foosball Program. It's a popular practice for these types of gatherings to eventually lead to some type of coordinated competition format. Ala-foos logo

It's my intention to include submitted information that will help any persons interested in finding foosball activity in areas scattered throughout the Southeastern USA. If you know of places where coordinated efforts have established an event, whether it's every-week, bi-weekly, or even monthly, if it's presented in sportsmanlike fashion and if it's open to anyone to participate, please submit this information to It's very likely we will add that information here so that possibly others will learn of it and open the door for the possibility of growth in the local player base.
