Foosball Academy

Post by Oatsey » Fri Nov 28, 2014 10:26 am

Hi all,
I have been working on a project to open a place to play foos in Bristol for over 12 months . It has finally come to fruition and we celebrated the opening of the Foosball Academy with two private functions this week.

Details can be found on our public Facebook page here :

When I get them I will try to post some pics of last nights event.

A big thanks to Ben Leahy for coming all the way from Reading.

Lets hope we can now rebuild the Bristol local scene!

From a PM to Dave


Thanks for the games last night Dave it was worth the journey. I know a great deal of effort has gone in to maintaining a scene in Bristol but even so bristolians are still fortunate to have so many players passionate about the game. From my perspective its just nice to have a couple of games against good opposition.

Take a care, Ben

Hi, In case anyone is interested who can get this channel just to let you know "Made in Bristol" Tv filmed a news item and a longer feature on the foosball academy today. The news item will be shown at 6 and 9pm I think and then the longer feature tomorrow at 6.30 and 9.30 I believe in case anyone wants to see me embarrass myself!
Channel 159 on virgin and also on sky somewhere.

That is the channel Rob, just local TV for Bristol . I was appalling as usual on the news item last night. The feature segment is tonight at 6.30 and 9.30 so i am told but you can never be sure . Hopefully we will end up getting some new people interested as that is the objective!

Hi
As some of you will know I have been trying to live stream the camera from the academy but as I don't seem to have the band width on my wifi in the academy to do this with any quality I have decided to just upload the recorded video to my you tube "Foosball Academy" channel. I will do this shortly after each Thursday night club night so those present can see their games and what they did right or wrong!!

Obviously this will be a bit tedious if you were not there (or even if you were!!) but there could be some bored foosball sad people who are interested so I have posted the links here to the you tube channel

here is a link

Also if you want to see a taster video of the dubious skills on display see the Foosball Academy facebook group here
