Foosball Table With A Glass Playing Surface
Why Do You Want A Table Glass With A Glass Surface
Glass playing surfaces have a number of advantages over surfaces that are derived from wood or plastic surfaces. The main ones are:
• Once attached to the table, very strong and will last forever
• Very easy to clean, can use most cleaners with no damage
• Can be kept outside with no adverse side effects
• Spills and rubbish falling onto the table will not damage it
• Allows for a very fast game, if that is what you are looking for
There are a couple of disadvantages
• Very expensive compare to other table surfaces
• Vary fragile until it is attached to wood/board on which it rests

Adding A Glass Surface To Your Foosball Table
If you are considering adding a Glass Playing Surface to your existing table then StealthBoy has written a guide to doing exactly that. I cannot really comment too much on this as it is not something that I have personally tried to do
Also, I needed to figure out the playfield surface. In order to closely reproduce the surface of a Tornado (which is non-smooth), our playfield is made of a base 3/4″ inch particle board, a paper playfield, and then 1/8″ Plexiglas roughed with 60-grit sandpaper, all sandwiched with a clear artists’ spray mount adhesive. This gives it a nice, translucent look while giving the right texture for ball pinning. I drew our playfield using the Gimp. You can download the file here. So, our playfield cost $29 instead of the $250 for a real Tornado top. It’s all about the budget.
