Air Hockey table, puck and mallets



What does air hockey have to do with hockey played on a field? Nothing. Although the name might lead you to suspect otherwise. What do you need to play air hockey? An air hockey table, a puck and two mallets. These are the nylon handgrips the players use to bounce the puck into the goal. The goal is a small slip on the short side of the table.


Air hockey tables with holes

What makes the air hockey table so special? The air, of course! The system is ingenious: a compressor pumps air up through little holes in the table top. This means the puck has virtually no friction on the playing field. These tables are most frequently found in game arcades, canteens and club houses.
