Table Football training: On this page, Subbuteo beginners will find some moderate Subbuteo training exercises to improve their flicking skills.
Cutting around (video tutorial)
Place the ball inside the playing area but as close as possible to the sideline. Put some defenders close to the sideline as shown below. Now try to cut around the ball with your attacker (one or two flicks; the ball must not leave the playing area!) and pass it with your third flick along the sideline – without touching any defenders. [Ten stages.]
Flick a Subbuteo ball with three attackers on the pitch . Be careful to commit no foul while combinating and perform with each player a maximum of three flicks in succession. [Place ten defenders on the field and repeat the exercise.]
On the lines
Place ten attackers along the Subbuteo pitch edge to central line, shooting lines and goal lines . Flick successively all attackers at least 20 cm on each line into the pitch. [Repeat the exercise with more speed.]
Contact and shoot
Put five balls into the Subbuteo shooting area and put five attackers ten to 30 cm behind them on the pitch. Flick any attacker so that it slightly touches the ball and then shoot immediately a goal. [Three stages.]
