Founded in 1926 in the United States by Walter and Sophia Holdstein, the General Sportcraft Company was born after the couple discovered the growing popularity of backyard games in Europe, during a visit to family. The games include croquet and badminton.
The company expanded to include other family-oriented games throughout the 1900s. This is when foosball was included in the list, along with air hockey, darts, pool, and table tennis.
The foosball tables that Sportcraft produces come in many varieties, from kid-friendly toy tables to those in furniture styles. The latter makes for an elegant addition to any home, making them more than just a source of entertainment.
So it’s not a surprise that furniture-style tables are preferred by homeowners.
Sportcraft foosball tables are available all over the United States in some major retail stores, such as Target and Walmart. With offices in Hong Kong, Los Angeles, New Jersey, Toronto, and Shenzhen, the company has a global presence and sells their products to over 13 million customers.
Compared to other foosball brands, however, Sportcraft table models are not chosen for use in professional foosball tournaments. This is because the product parts can’t withstand the demands of complex shots and fast and intensive gameplay.
In other words, it is not a tournament-style table.
