We are pleased to announce that Home Leisure Direct have agreed a partnership with the BFA (British Foosball Association) where we will work together to promote and develop the game of foosball throughout the UK.

BFA Logo

The British Foosball Association (formerly the Bar Football Association) was established as a players' association, tasked with making table football as popular in the UK and Ireland as it is all over the world.

The founder members recognised the need for a central point for players to express their views and concerns, in order to ensure the continued growth of the game.

The BFA boasts over 1000 members and is internationally recognised by players, manufacturers and promoters. The BFA is an independent association run by an unpaid elected committee. We raise money via special events and sponsorship in order to promote the game and keep membership costs low.

We will be working with our friends at the BFA on several fronts, which include the following:

  • Coaching Videos - working with BFA President Ben Mason we have filmed a series of coaching videos to help players develop their skills. Visit our "How to Play Foosball" section to enjoy these.
  • Special Offers - we will be launching some great offers for all customers buying their foosball table from us, which will include free 1 year membership to the BFA, free BFA Tournament entry, free professional coaching and 1 weeks free access to where you can catch all the competitive foosball action from the last 8 years on video.
  • Coaching Events - we will be hosting professional coaching events each month where anyone can come along to be coached free of charge and enjoy a few competitive games too. Places will be limited so please keep your eyes on our Facebook page for the dates and booking process.

There are a host of other initiatives we are working on, so keep an eye on our blog, Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date.

We are incrediby excited about our partnership with the BFA. Our combined enthusiasm to develop the game in the UK will greatly improve the outreach across both the home player sector, as well as the competitive foosball scene.

We are the only retailer in the UK to be able to offer all the ITSF certified foosball tables, the only place where you can enjoy all the amazing free gifts when buying a foosball table, as well as being the only place where you can receive BFA certified professional training free of charge.
