About the Tournament
The Wisconsin Foosball State Championships is one of many tournaments held across the U.S. on the Foosball Pro Tour. Players from all over the nation will travel to Appleton to compete against one another in variety of events – including both singles and doubles. Men, women, and children of all skill levels, beginner to professional, are eligible to compete against one another.
Tournaments on the pro tour don’t use your typical home foosball table, but an exceptional top of the line model. The Tornado Tournament 3000 (T-3000) table is the standard competition table in the U.S. market, and used on the Pro Tour and World Cup Championships. IFP observes International Table Soccer Federation (ITSF) rules for all tour events.
The tournament takes place at Mad Apple Billiard and Burger Co, located in Appleton, Wisconsin. This family friendly restaurant venue serves amazing food and is typically a pool hall… but for one weekend every year it turns into a foosball hall!
Unlike typical foosball tables, these foosball tables do not accept quarters. Each participant must pay a one time registration fee of either $10, or $15 based on the child’s ranking. New players generally fall under the beginner ranking, which is $10. Once the registration fee is paid, it will cost an additional $5 per junior event.
So for example if a child is new to the sport and would like to play singles and doubles it would cost $20 total.
