CERN Table Football Club’s aim is to provide the whole CERN community with the chance to enjoy the game of table football, no matter whether you are a beginner or an expert.

Founded in 2017, we have 2 tables on the Meyrin site and 1 in Prevessin. We meet every Thursday evening in R1 and organise wider tournaments several times per year.

- Your GROUP GAMES will be held on either the evening of Wednesday (24th) or Thursday (25th) and FINALS & PRIZE GIVING CEREMONY on the Friday (26th) evening
- Which evening you play your group games will be determined once registration is complete on 21st July
- ALL 3 TABLES will be in R1 for the event and your matches will be distributed across each of them
- Matches will be DOUBLES
- You can partner with anyone you like provided you both have an existing CERN access pass necessary to reach R1
- Looking for a PARTNER? Let us know in the Facebook comments or by DM or email table.football@cern.ch

*N.B. – If teams scheduled to play a group game one evening agree instead to play during the day, this is fine of course and will help ease potential table traffic later. Just remember to record your score as each goal counts!
