^ The Danish team plays on the "giant" Bonzini table at the 1998 World Championships. The giant table has 22 bars (for 11 players, like in soccer) on each side, so that 22 people can play at once. The bars on each side are laid out in the following pattern (from goalie to forward): 1,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,2,5,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3,3.

These are some "electric" tables that were on display at the 1998 World Championships. Not only does it do things like keep score automatically, but there is a TV screen inside the goal to view your progress on the tournament chart, information on your opponents, etc. >  smNanteselectabs.jpg (11808 bytes)

A view of the tournament charts, with some people in the way :-), at the 2nd Annual Tournament Provincial De Baby-Foot in Canada March 1999. Note the different tournament format of the charts, using round-robin qualifying "pool" play followed by single elimination, rather than just double elimination as in the USA. > Canada99BBFoot10Charts.jpg (17363 bytes)
