Want an air hockey table for your home that offers the same type of gameplay experience as the tables at your local arcade do? Then your search is over. This best-selling air hockey table from ESPN offers the ultimate gaming experience in a table that has a lot to offer in terms of flash, stability, and power.
Overview and Features
This table will be a perfect addition if you want an arcade style table that can offer the same type of gaming experience. Of course, this table will take up some serious space, so pay close attention to the air hockey table dimensions in order to determine if this table can comfortably fit into a dedicated spot in your home. Remember, you also need to factor in two extra feet of extra space at each end of the table to ensure players have enough room to move around comfortably.
When people are shopping for an air hockey table for home use, often they’re looking for a flashy model that comes loaded with LED lights, sound effects, and a total pro setup. This table by ESPN can totally deliver. The overhead LED scorer is not only eye-catching, but it’s also very accurate. The scorer’s design stretches over the expanse of the entire table and emits arcade-style sound effects, projection lights, and a game timer, for a total arcade style gaming experience.
Unlike other competing models, this table comes with a total of four strikers and four pucks. The table also has a couple of cupholders, allowing you to enjoy a cold drink as you play an intense round. Additionally, the table also comes with a couple of storage spots so you can keep all of the accessories neatly organized and easily accessible.
The table’s playing surface measures in at three-quarters of an inch thick, with a high-gloss finish. The high-gloss finish combined with the powerful blower system is designed to provide a smoother gaming experience, allowing the puck to easily glide across the surface.
The one hundred and twenty-volt blower motor is UL certified.
The table measures in at four feet by forty-eight inches by thirty-two inches and weighs in at one hundred and forty-one pounds.
This model has sort of a nostalgic feel to it. Playing on it will take you back to the days when you played arcade air hockey for hours at a time. The lights, sound effects, and larger high-gloss playing surface offer the total gaming experience. ESPN has clearly paid attention to what air hockey enthusiasts want in a table and designed a model that comes loaded with all the features a true fan would want and appreciate.
This seven-foot air hockey table features full panel leg supports in addition to tops rails, reinforced aprons, and protective corner caps. The protective corner caps aren’t commonly found already installed on an air hockey table, but they’re a must-have if there are small children in the home.

The table’s leg levelers can be individually adjusted and are designed to compensate for an uneven surface. However, if all of the leg levelers are adjusted you can essentially lower the table, in order to accommodate shorter players. These are six-inch leg levelers that are highly adjustable and easy to use.
As we mentioned earlier, the corner caps are a great extra, especially if you live in a home with small children. Aside from preventing an injury, these caps can also protect the walls and doors from scratches. The caps also give the table a clean, modern look.
The table is covered by a ninety-day product warranty. Considering the price, we were disappointed with the length of coverage. At any point during the three-month coverage period, if you encounter issues with the table, including the electronic scorer and blower system, you can contact the manufacturer for replacement parts or repairs if the table is defective.
This table really is a steal for the price. Competing models such as the Brunswick 7ft Air Hockey Table, which features a basic design, complete with a manual scorer and a lower powered blower, is offered at a higher price and can’t stand up to this ESPN table’s power, arcade style design, and top of the line blower system. Of course, if you want a table that features a simple low-key design, then the Brunswick model will be a better choice.
