Two Men Playing Foosball

5 Ways To Improve Your Foosball Skills

Today we are going to talk about 5 ways that will improve your foosball skills consist of shot and passing tricks. So let’s not waste time and get into action.


1- The Push Kick

Spot a gap in the defense?  Push the ball laterally between your strikers, aim, and shoot. The ball will become fast and super deadly.
This trick is easy to master and effective in games. Master this skill and own your friends while playing foosball.

2- The Wall Brush

Wall Brush is a passing technique where the first 5 – 3 men pass that everyone learns when starting out. It’s simple yet super effective.

It’s done typically along the wall that is nearest to you, and only on tables that utilise tournament bumpers. Keep your 3-men tight by the wall and tilt. When done right, the result is a trapped ball on your 3 bar.

3- The Dink

The dink is a sneaky little shot. It’s a little push on the ball by the wide strikers, followed by a shot that’s designed to spray (angled) a little.

The target is typically the near post gap, where defenders may occasionally leave out due to their focus being on the central striker. The dink is typically a secondary shot.

P.S: After mastering both The Dink shot and The Push Kick. You can combine them together and perform a deadly combination shot to score.

4- Stick Passing

This trick is similar to the Wall brush, but it required you to fully utilise the 5-men bar, by maneuvering the ball along the bar until you spot a lane in your opponent’s five bar and pass the ball to your next lane quickly without being block.
It’s a great move to use and mix it up other tricks to achieve a good effect.

5- The Pin Shot

The one of the best shot to perform on a Garlando table. The pin shot begins with a setup to pin the ball in front of the goalie, followed by sliding left to right to create openings, and lastly, outracing the defense to pot.

This shot is extremely effective and is considered a high percentile shot on a Garlando table due to its immense versatility.
