It’s been a long winter, and we’re dreaming of lounging poolside with the barbecue going and the kids playing. Instead of keeping all the fun games indoors, why not bring them outdoors?
An outdoor foosball table is always a great hit amongst friends and family of all ages. They’re easy to put outdoors and not worry about bringing it in at the end of the day since they are designed to withstand outdoor weather conditions.
Often, we’ll find a good deal on a foosball table for the kids or for entertainment at a party. However, they are often plastic, flimsy, unstable, and can break easily if knocked over. Also, you are usually only advised to keep these tables indoors, as heat, humidity, and rain can cause damage, making it unappealing to play on.
An outdoor weatherproof foosball table can help with that! You won’t need to worry about potential water or heat damage. An outdoor table can also encourage the kids to get outside and play rather be stuck indoors all the time.
It’s a game the whole family can play together, but it’s also a game that can be played professionally. Your friends will get a kick out of a mini-tournament in the comfort of your own garden!
Garlando have been making foosball tables since the late 1940’s, so they can certainly boast having knowledge in quality tables.
They do not disappoint with their G-500 indoor/outdoor weatherproof foosball table. This was Garlando’s first weatherproof outdoor foosball table and it’s still a popular choice.
Every detail was kept in mind when designing a table to withstand the outdoors, including the waterproof glue and stainless steel fixtures that have been coated with a tropical anti-rust treatment, even every nut and bolt used to put the table together.
Ideal for humid environments! The roller bearings that attach to the 1 ¼-inch thick cabinet are also anti-rust stainless steel and glide easily to a high impact game while reducing stress on the wrists.
The chromium plated rods are telescopic, so they can be adjusted to be easier for children to use without worrying about being jabbed with the handles. The table is predominantly blue, with a greyish (marine) plastic laminate playing field and blue silk screen playing field lines. The plastic players are molded onto the rod which keeps them in place! The cabinet is a marine cabinet made with plywood but waterproofed.
The steel legs have a leveler that keep the table stable and level on any surface, whether it be indoors on carpet, or outdoors in the garden on dirt, cement, tiles, and more. They are a 4x4-inch square, which adds to the stability, and is coated with a washable powder varnish. In fact, the whole table is washable so you do not need to worry about dirt and grime build up leaving any damage.
Pros & Cons
The best thing about this weatherproof table is that you can leave it outside without the worry. If you do choose to bring it inside, though, it is not easy to fold up like some other lighter versions and carry. You will definitely need two people to bring this back and forth. Weatherproof does not mean it will be free of leaves and bugs! You will need to make sure it is covered, but thankfully Garlando supplies the vinyl cover that can help with this.
You’re only left with a choice of blue and white players! You also have to put some time into putting it together but it isn’t anything too complicated and the Garlando outdoor foosball table reviews suggest it should not take more than an hour.
It is on the expensive side, but you get what you pay for with Garlando. The quality you get is top notch from a company that specializes in foosball tables.
This outdoor foosball table was built to last. Even though it is indoor/outdoor, you could leave it outside permanently and not have any problems with the condition of the table.
Garlando has created something that is suitable for the whole family or even for a more professional player. There’s no excuse to stay indoors. If the sun is out, there is no reason you can’t be out there with it having fun!
