Let's see how to shoot on table soccer.
1. Know the composition of the table.
Note that the table looks like a mini soccer field, with 8 rods going across the field. These are labeled based on the number of mini “players” on each rod. Each team has 2 offensive rods, known as a 5-rod and a 3-rod, along with 2 defensive rods, known as the 2-rod and goalie-rod. Along the sides of the table, you can find a serving hole where the ball goes to start the game.
Once the ball enters the goal, it rolls into the table’s cabinet. There are slots or openings along the sides of the table where you can find and reuse the scored balls.
