Hi guys,

Wanted to bring up the thought of making a Table Hockey Heaven group on Facebook. There are numerous groups on there for Electric Football and Subbuteo and I don't know if there is one for table hockey at all?

It's incredibly easy to make and setup and can be convenient for sharing pictures and tips when something doesn't really need a full blown forum post.

I've built these for the Canadian Subbuteo Table Football Association, World Amateur Subbuteo Players Association, and Calgary Electric Football League and would be happy to do it for THH. (Literally only takes a few minutes)

If there are a couple guys that want to help bring admins and if Paul is ok with using the Table Hockey Heaven name there I'd be happy to slap something together.

Let me know if there is interest and I'll put something up.

Good evening.

There are numerous table hockey groups on Facebook. Just about every association has one.

I think you hit the nail on the head when you suggested you'd want to work with Mr. Paul Ruiz to do one for tablehockeyheaven.

I've seen league pages. But I haven't seen a honest to goodness discussion group for sharing info etc.

I just figure having a Table Hockey Heaven group just makes sense and would probably help in just having people see the game when searching around for table hockey.

After further review, why do I want to create a Facebook page & drive forum members away from THH.?

A group isn't to drive people away at all. The forums should always be the place to go for detailed information. A Facebook group should be used more for casual conversation and quick hits for sharing what is going on, as well as helping guys with any problems they may need help with.

The biggest thing Facebook should do is actual direct more traffic to Table Hockey Heaven where information here can be linked to help out guys with questions and ideas.

I speak as a guy that had no use for it myself for the longest time but as President of the CSTFA and Calgary EFL it makes communication easier and the world smaller.

The best example I can give is a post Tonscia made in the cafe about Table Hockey Pucks. If someone has a question about pucks (I did the other night and had to search for a while to find the answer) they can quickly be referred to a detailed post like that.

Using the Football groups as an example if someone were to ask a similar question someone usually is online and can give give a good answer linking to the MFCA or other forums.

Go for it

Best to put your own spin on it anyway. The subbuteo page you linked to tells me you'd do a great job. And I don't even like subbuteo.

Many on here have asked how to get the youth involved in table hockey. Most of us have figured out that kids do spend a lot of time on FB. You'd have better luck catching one with a quick hit than having them scour the forums.

I don't see where it would hurt this forum. The stuff on here is more in depth. Having a FB group would only lead more people here. Everyone wins.

Sure there's others. Just had a look at Table hockey freaks and Vancouver TH Club. Both are very good, but mostly local. There's room for more.

I would suggest getting rid of needing approval to post otherwise it defeats the purpose of a facebook group.

But other than that it's exactly what I was talking about. Clapping
