Registered BFA Foosball Clubs
A Registered BFA Foosball Club, at its most basic, has at least four players, at least one foosball table, and a club captain, which is registered as a club with the BFA.
In most European countries, foosball is organised on a club structure.
Club membership is the way forward to organise grass-roots foosball in the UK, linking local players into the national scene.
Clubs provide a vital point of contact drawing new players in the area together and providing a focal point for organised foosball sessions and social activities.
