Rules to play Foosball
A ball shall be declared a dead ball when it has completely stopped its motion and is not within reach of any player figure. If the ball is declared dead between the goal and two man rods, it shall be put back into play by placing the ball in the corner nearest the spot of the dead ball and releasing it into play from rest. The goalie must have the assurance that the opposing team is ready for play to continue before putting the ball back into play in this manner. Furthermore, the goalie must then move the ball from one player figure to another one and then stop the ball for a full second before the motion of a shot or pass may begin. The time limits begin one second after the ball touches the second man. If the ball is declared dead anywhere between the two man rods, it shall be put back into play with a serve by the team that originally served that ball. A ball that is spinning in place is not considered to be a dead ball. A ball that is intentionally made dead in order to advance the ball or reset the time limits shall be given to the opposing team for a re serve (example: the two man placing the ball just out of reach in order to re serve the ball). The penalty for illegally putting the ball back into play is the opponents choice of either continuing play from the current position or re serving the ball. This includes the cases where a player either loses the ball or scores on himself before the ball has been put back into play.
