Most people may not remember their first time playing Air hockey, but chances are they’ve played it more than once. It is the kind of game that seems to pick up frequent players in the blink of an eye.
It starts with a round table for those who do not know how to play or what air hockey is. It has a very smooth table for playing Air table Hockey games.
History of Air Hockey
Air hockey was invented by the inventor of foosball, Edward F. Murphy, in 1954. It was originally called “paddle hockey.” It wasn’t until 1971 that it was renamed “air hockey” because of compressed air to propel the puck.
A group of Brunswick Billiards personnel created it from 1969 to 1972. The Hockey Players Association (AHPA) was proclaimed in March 2015 and provided air sports hockey players with an extra organization overseeing the sport of the games.

Air hockey games
The games are played using a standard vulcanized rubber puck. The puck is hit with a hockey stick and the rules of hockey. Air rules are the same as those that govern table hockey, except that the puck is shot with a compressed air gun rather than a broomstick.

The sports puck is the same as the vulcanized hockey puck, but it is less dense and made of rubber.
