From Beijing to Foosball Malaysia Central Region Tournament

Well, one thing is for sure, there are no foosball tables in Beijing, or at least I did not find one. I tried asking around... but could not really say the word, "foosball" in Mandarin. Struggling with some sign language, twisting both my hands, did not get me anywhere. Instead, I got to discussing about China's first ever World Cup Football qualifying.

Anyways, after coming back from Beijing on Oct 17th, it was time for some serious foosing... LOL. Went and got myself qualified for the Mild Seven Nationals on Oct 19th and on the following night, participated in the Foosball Malaysia's Central Region Tournament. The results and some info on the tournament are as follows:

From 19th October to 20th October 2001 at Bravos and Breakers respectively, Foosball Malaysia organised a Central Region Tournament as a warm-up to the Mild Seven Malaysia Nationals, which will be held from Nov 9 to Nov 11 2001 in KL Plaza.

As with most FM's foosball events, the turnout was good with players from Penang, Johor and Klang Valley. I think photos should be available at Foosball Malaysia's site.
