How to Assemble a Harvard Foosball Table

Foosball dates back to the late 19th century, and emerged around the same time as soccer did. The objective of foosball is to score as many goals as possible against the other team. Both teams use three sets of plastic men which they control using metal rods which go through either side of the table.

Click both parts of all four legs together and place to one side.

Slide three players on to each metal rod and slide the rods in to the six sets of holes on each side of the table.

Apply the screws that came with the table to the front and back of the table with the screwdriver. Place the two goals either end of the table.

Turn the table upside-down and screw in each leg on to each corner of the table.

Turn the table back on to its legs. Attach the corner caps that came with the table to the four corners of the table. Attach the scoreboard by pressing it in to the two holes on the side of the table.

Things You'll Need

  • Harvard foosball table kit (table, players, legs, screws, goals, metal rods, scoreboard, corner caps)
  • Screwdriver


  • You can get additional players and accessories by going to the official Harvard website.
