These fun tables will keep your crew happy for hours.
Air hockey tables are a wonderful way to keep your crew active and engaged for hours at home. The simple rules and accessible action make it a great game for people of all ages and athletic abilities. Air hockey tables come in a range of sizes and prices, with a variety of accessories, but we have found a great mix that is sure to include a few that will be perfect for you and your team.
Making a big purchase like an air hockey table requires serious time and thought. Not only will it take a lot of space in your home, it will eat up a big chunk of your budget. Keep the below in mind, and you’ll emerge victorious.
Type: There are smaller tables, standard tournament-size (84 inches), and even tabletop versions. Keep the design in mind, too: Some feature a lot of loud graphics, while others are designed to blend with the style of your décor.
Versatile: A few of our tables do more than “just” provide a space for playing air hockey.
Accessories: Will you want a light-up game, a scorekeeper? Some tables are very basic, while others offer an array of game-day accessories.
Players: Are you looking for a table you and your kids can play at occasionally, or are you a serious competitor? There’s a big difference in price and quality of the tables we selected below, so keep in mind how often the table will be used, and what kind of expectations the players have.

Bonus: Assembly of the 14-pound table is a snap, and the play zone comes with two air hockey strikers and pucks.
