Bought this for my seven-year-old's birthday, but he can't play alone, so his ten-year-old and thirteen-year-old brothers, not to mention his forty-eight-year-old dad and undisclosed-year-old mum, have all played plenty on it.

If you've assembled Ikea furniture before, you won't find the construction too taxing. Take your time at the start to ensure the teams are correctly positioned, as initial constuction is done with the table upside down. I made the foolish mistake of simply facing the teams symetrically, without placing the forwards.. well, forward. My kids spotted this the moment I'd finished constructing the table, which meant I had to completely dismantle it to make the correction. Advice: ask the kids to check the team positions right at the beginning.

The table plays like a pub table (except you don't need to feed it with coins), with that satisfying thwack when you hit the sweet spot. It's solid, and doesn't feel like it'll fall over with every shot, as some tables do. The players are firmly screwed on, though some initially worked slightly loose, so I tightened them up and they've stayed secure.

All in all, a really good table that I can see lasting a long time to come.

This football table is really great, very sturdy and well made. However, you do need to completely put it together yourself and ideally have 2 people to do this although the instructions don't tell you you need a second person until much later on in the build. I did manage to build it by myself so it can be done. It took a couple of hours to put together and when I got the last part, putting the legs on I discovered that I did not have 4 correct legs so have been unable to use the metal cross supports. In honesty though I have not contacted the supplier about this as was for Christmas so was put up on Christmas Eve ready for the morning and the table works fine as it is, still sturdy and strong.

I would def recommend this but just be aware that it is alot of work to put together.

Comes as a flat pack and takes some putting together. Be careful to look at the picture of the finished unit when building it as it can be confusing if you just go by the construction notes. It is a good size and has been well used and is great fun to play. One slight niggle is that the plastic bushes around the rods come loose all too easily when you turn the player handles, a little glue will probably do the trick.

This football table is as good as it looks. Firstly it went together very easily. The instructions were easy to follow, everything was packed separately so you could easily distinguish between parts and once fitted togehter and everything's tightened, its a very solid construction.
It was bought for my 4 year old and although he does love it, he's still a little too young to really get to grips with it but I can tell it's gonna last a long time and he'll have great fun with it in a year or so. In the meantime, my husbands having great fun with it instead. Over Christmas it took a good battering with 4 adult males playing on it quite a few times and the table has really stood up to the test, still no wobbles or loose parts!!
All in all, well worth the money indeed....

A good sturdy table that's easy to construct, heavy enough to not fly all over with a bit of rougher play, but not so heavy that its impossible to move around and store in the corner when not in use. It looks really good as well and it great fun to play, but only for one or two games if you're vaguely tall. Myself and my (very) tall siblings get back ache quite quickly from stooping over it. It would get 5 stars if I was shorter (or the table legs longer)

Looked good quality and was easy to assembly. Within in a month one of the players had broken in half and the wood had fractured. It is no longer suitable for the children to use, but out of the 30 day period so stuck with it. Worst experience with Amazon ever as usually very good.

Great table, our 2 children (7 and 9) have had hours of fun on it. Seems very sturdy.

As happened with other reviewers, my husband put the players on the wring way round at first so take care when assembling.

This package arrived ahead of schedule in the post. The end panel was partially damaged (probably due to transportation) but I decided to put the table together in spite of the damage, as I needed it quickly, taking me about 2 hours to assemble. (As it turned out the damage was internal and minor). Instructions are pretty clear and the parts in bags are individually labelled to help. (Take care when putting the players in position to face the right way!). You will need a second person near the end to help upright the table. If you are on a sloping floor you will need to put something under the legs to level the table.
The rods seem pretty solid, spin around easily and move smoothly without sticking. The table is sturdy and stable during play but is still just about light enough to relocate (22kg) to another location without too much trouble. My boys (12yrs old) have given it a good work-out and it is playing well. If you are a tall adult though prolonged play with this could give you a sore back. The product is good value for money with 2 balls provided and a built-in score device. Would have given 5 stars if not for the partial damage.

This table is great, definitely one of the more study ones on the market. I bought this as a birthday present for my 4 year and and so far both my 4 and 6 year old have loved playing with it. We needed something strong as the boys can be a little heavy handed to say the least and it seems to do the job.
