Hi I live in Korat and decided to build and sell Foosball tables about 5 years ago. Long story short I sourced the absolute best parts and built a bunch of amazing tables but they did not sell. They are ridiculously strong, with professional grade parts, steel legs, and are WATERPROOF.  Here is my ad on Bahtsold (hope this is allowed.)  https://www.bahtsold.com/view/fireball-foosball-tables-28-000-free-shipping--257368. I'm in town for the next week or two and have drastically lowered the price for local Koratians.

I have 5 of these I would sell at 15,000 THB (local pickup). There are an additional bunch that just need the top rails. I would sell these for 10,000 THB. I live near Ko Kraut and anyone is welcome to come check them out. Additionally I would be willing to donate a table or two to the Thai Childrens Home or other worthy charity if any members have the contact info or any ideas.

Hello Mike, the contact for Baan Mittraphap Childrens Home is a lady called Khun Julaporn 0818761572.

They are located on the left hand side of the main road heading out of Korat towards Sung Noen, at a guess about 5-10km past Save One.

I'm sure they would be delighted with any donation you made.

Can you explain better please?


or other worthy charity if any members have the contact info or any ideas

You could try offering one to Pankan shop at The Mall, basement floor next to Watsons, near where the banks are. They are on Facebook (Korat Pankan Shop). They raise money for Yuvabadhana Foundation. I annex a couple of old photos for reference.

Hi guys. Thanks for all the replys. I will be calling Khun Julaporn today to see if they are interested. If they don't want a table, maybe we could set up a raffle with the proceeds to benefit the Childrens home. Ditto for that shop in the mall...i will try them too.

This picture is a finished table. I have a large number of tables that don't have the hardwood pieces that you see on the top ends and along the sides. The hardwood is not a structural piece, table still plays great without it but still kind of necessary because the top corners and rails would be a little sharp without it. Those (the ones that need top rails and goal top) are the tables that cost 10,000THB.



Just a few more details...stainless "rattle boards" make an awesome PLONK when a goal is scored. The Fireball rods are slick and fast and super strong...rods dont' bend at all. The bearings are designed so the Fireball pre assembled rods can be installed. Roll pins (not screws) attach players. All parts are professional grade and were used in the ITSF "world cup of foosball", including the balls (you'll get 10 which is enough for forever). The cabinets are made from Grade A plywood and Formica brand laminate. Playfields are 3/4 inch plywood with laminate on both sides and 6mm phenolic resin board bonded to the top. Totally waterproof (and kid proof and drunk proof).

I'm probably only in town for a few more days but I might make a new video of me and my kid jumping up and down on one just to demo how strong it really is.

I have a bunch of these and have run out of ideas on how to sell them. If anyone has any ideas, I am open to suggestions.

Yeah, thanks. Tables turned out great. I put a lot of effort into the cabinet design, and execution. Too bad I couldn't sell them. I'm still trying to figure that out...the tables actually look better in person and the solidity of the cabinet (and speed of gameplay) is awesome.

Thanks to Anton and Slimeball for giving me the info for the Children's Home and the Pankan shop. We are prepping a couple of tables to donate to them. :)
