Playing surface

Hey guys,

I have not researched this yet but I was wondering what are some ideas on what type of surface to put the board on for play? I see some up on types of what appeared to be folding stands similar to what a piano keyboard would sit on. I used to just play on the floor as a kid but my aching back and Joe Nameth knees cant stand much of that

Coffee table? Poker table? Seems you would want good support under the field..some kind of flat surface.

Thanks,
Scotty

I use a folding table. I found that works the best for me.

I use a fold up, ultra-lite table and I place a beach towel on top to absorb some noise and vibration.

Playing Surface

I have used various playing surfaces from the kitchen table, to a fold up table, to a custom built table that my boards can set down in. Towel underneath is pretty standard for dampening the noise of the motor.

For my Electric Football room I use saw horses from Home Depot with a half inch plywood and green felt stapled on the plywood. It makes for a nice looking and stable place to put your board. See "My Electric Football Room" thread in the Collectors Corner Forum.

I use a padded rectangle card table. Works great and it absorbs some of the bounciness of my SpeedTurf field.
