If you live in a small house, apartment or condo, then you might not have a dedicated home game room space. But you don’t have to let that stop you from enjoying a little foosball whenever the mood strikes you.
You can buy a portable folding foosball table so that you can pull out the table when you’re ready to play and then fold it up for storage when you’re not challenging someone to a game of foosball.
There are few different models of foosball tables that fold, so let us go through a few of our favorite models. Below we’ll tell you what we like and don’t like about each of these so that you can determine which model is a good choice for your home.

Garlando Open Air Indoor/Outdoor Weatherproof Foosball/Soccer Folding Game Table
best quality overall (#1 pick)
If you’re interested in a high quality folding foosball table that will last your family for years to come, then our #1 choice for you is this Garlando model. Though it is not the cheapest option on this list, we do believe that it is the highest quality you can find in a folding model.
What’s unique about this particular table is that it is a weatherproof model, which means that you can play indoors or outdoors (and the bad weather won’t damage it). This means you can move it out onto the patio when friends are over, which really makes this a versatile gaming table.
Another great benefit of this model is that it is the ultimate in portability. Say you want to take this game to the beach, the park or the lake – no problem! The legs fold in and this thing has carry handles making it the most awesome portable foosball table on the market right now. You can literally just put it in your trunk or the back of your car and take it anywhere for a fun day of foosballing.
Plus, this thing is super lightweight, which means transporting it around is a lot easier than you’d expect.
Bottom line: if you don’t mind the price and want something that will last for family for years to come, then you can’t beat the quality and value of this folding model.
HATHAWAY Gladiator 48 in. Folding Foosball Table
best for teens and younger kids
Though this table gets top marks from our editors, it’s not the right choice for every foosball enthusiast out there. Overall, it’s a good value for the money and it comes in at a great price for families on a low budget.
Who is the Hathaway Gladiator good for?
- Teens and younger kids
- Anyone on a tight budget looking to spend under $200 – $300
This space saving foosball table has a lot to offer if you’re not a serious player. It is compact at 48-inches and very colorful, in fact it looks great in a kid’s room or play room. And it really folds up to take up very little space when you’re not using it.
You’ll notice that it comes with a soccer ball style of ball, which means that you’re not getting superior quality foosballs with it.
Bottom line: if you can afford to spend more, then make a different choice because this is a cheap table and you really do get what you pay for. But, if you just want something inexpensive for the kiddos, then this model will likely be good enough.
KICK Folding Foosball Table Monarch, 48 In
best value pick (for the mid-level budget)
If you don’t want to spend what the Garlando tables cost, but you want higher quality than the Hathaway model above offers, then the Monarch table from KICK is your best bet.
The nice thing about this table is that you get decent quality at an affordable cost, which makes it a good choice for families, teens, and even adult enthusiasts.
While it doesn’t get as compact and portable as the Garlando model listed above, it is easy to store and the wheels on the stationary legs make it easy to move this one around your house.
You get the normal KICK quality from this table – it’s sturdy, durable, and a good value for the money.
Bottom line: For the budget-minded foosball player, this table is the perfect intersection of affordability and quality. If you can afford the Garlando, it’s a better choice, but this one is your next best option.
Garlando Master Pro Outdoor Foosball Table with Folding Legs, Safety Telescoping Rods, Abacus Scorers and 10 White Balls
best professional style folding foosball table
If, like us, you’re not crazy about the design of the Garlando model listed above, then we think you’ll like the design of this other foldable foosball table that they offer.
This model has that nice, classic design that you’re used to and also offers the added benefits of being foldable and designed for use outside.
You’ll notice that the cost of this one is similar to the other Garlando model listed up above, but there are some key differences here.
In addition to the design difference, this table isn’t as compact when folded up. The legs do fold in for storage, but this model does not have they carrying handles on it, which makes it not very portable. This model is also heavier than the other Garlando model listed up above.
Bottom line: This is a high quality table that is the perfect choice for the serious foosball enthusiast who needs something that is easy to store when not in use. And it’s just a nice bonus that you can also leave it outside without worry.
