The AirSoccer table is an exclusive and scientifically designed table, in which after a lot of study, we concluded that a slight inclination would be the best option for this sport. The table is made with a steel or aluminum frame, a water resistant surface, a fixed net in the middle of it made of reinforced a material, and it also has an exclusive rubber bumper protector covering the entire perimeter of the table to avoid any accidents
The tables measurements are as follow :
9.84 ft in length and 4.92 ft in width with a 23.62 in highest and 22 in 27 in for beginners lowest point in height
The AirSoccer ball must be spherical (soccer ball), of a circumference of not more than 28 in and not less than 27 in and not more than 16 oz and not less than 14 oz in weight at the start of the match.
. Air pressure of the ball in competition equals to 0.6 – 1.1 atmosphere (600 – 1,100 g/cm2 ) at sea level (8.5 lbs/sq in – 15.6 lbs/sq in).
- The net must be permanently fixed to the AirSoccer table.
- The net must be made out of the following materials: Translucent acrylic, reinforced plastic material
- The size specification of the net: a. Width: 1700 mm b. Thickness: 20 mm c. Height: 140 mm (measured from the surface of the AirSoccer table)
Our net will have to be very resistant and also very stable because the chances of it getting hit along a match are very high
