Kevin began playing table hockey as a child growing up with his three brothers. The Rafferty boys received a table hockey game for Christmas one year -- and the rest is history!
Kevin -- now over 50 years of age -- shares his love of table hockey with boys and girls and men and women of all ages. Kevin runs the Southern California Stiga Table Hockey League (SCSTHL) -- the largest table hockey club in all of North America.
Kevin is an elementary school principal and hosts once-a-month, free, table hockey tournaments at his school for boys and girls, older brothers and sisters, moms and dads, friends and neighbors, table hockey enthusiasts, and first-time table hockey players. Players range in age from five to one hundred five. The top player at each monthly drop-in table hockey tournament earns a championship trophy to keep!

Adults remember playing table hockey as a child. Some call it "old school!"
Today's kids -- sadly, sometimes -- have not seen the game. It is not sold in stores in the USA.
Table hockey games are sold via Internet-based companies like ours.
Table hockey is not electronic. No batteries required.
Table hockey is completely, manually operated. It requires fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination. Players are controlled by metal rods that travel in tracks below the ice surface.
Puckhandling, passing, shooting, scoring, playing defense, and goaltending are all accomplished by moving the metal rods and twisting with your fingertips. Table hockey is similar to foosball -- with a greater degree of fine motor skill involved.
One of the great things about table hockey: no matter where the hockey puck goes on the rink at least one player on the ice can always reach it to play the puck. There are no dead spots. No need to ever move the puck with your fingers on the ice surface.
Another great thing about table hockey -- age is no barrier. Kids are on an equal playing field/ice surface with adults. Many kids develop the skills needed to beat grown-ups.
Currently, the top ranked table hockey player in the world is a 22-year-old from Finland.
Table hockey is ideal for two players.
Table hockey is recommended for players age five and above. A certain level of fine motor skill and eye-hand coordination are necessary.
Table hockey can be played as doubles teams -- with two players on each side.
Also, youngsters can play goalie while the older child or adult can play with the five skaters. The goalie control rod is located at the left corner of the game.
