Perhaps they did not want a load of pros attending, stealing the prizes and spoiling the fun for the noobs?

That's a pretty negative view, Dave.

As Joe says, there are no decent players in Liverpool. And that includes me, Joe and Boris! Ha ha ha....

As with the last event they held, I do not expect Joe and I to enter.

Joe and I will be there to show people how to play, win a few challenge games, and I will suggest to the Foosball UK guys that we let people pay £1 to play us, and the best result of the evening wins say £20, profits to a charity. (Best result decided on goal difference / time lasted before we won etc...)

My hope is that there may be a few decent players who can up their game and join us for more competitive evenings later in the year.

I did not mean it negatively Cap, and by pro I meant "good" players.

It was merely meant as a possible explanation of why they were not publicising it nationally/more given they could have.

Others may not agree but yourself and Joe are" Good" players to me :lol:

Well done to the foosball UK chaps for running this. Turnouts getting larger, and everyone seemed to have a good time.

Awaiting photos and results.

We player 3 minute challengers, with the best results against us after three minutes taking home a small prize.... The best result was a GD of -7! We're hoping for some closer games next month!
