For footie fans, the summer gap between the European and World Cups are a lost ten weeks. It’s a strange, unfulfilled emptiness that lingers along with you, stalking your existence at every corner, and when you think you’ve come to the acceptance, it kicks back into your mind with the startling absence of competitive action. No, the Confederations Cup does not count.
Fear not, lovers of ‘the beautiful game’, for Bar Kick in Shoreditch is turning the heat up and tabling a weekend (June 28-30) of footballing action (albeit at a miniature level). Iron-wristed competitors of all ages from across the country are descending upon London for a three-day competitive table-football tournament. It’s serious; it’s cash prizes; it’s the Bonzini National Open.
The tournament caters for a variety of skill-levels and tickets range from £5-20 depending on skill. They’ve got 11 tables, and Bar Kick will serve food and drink throughout the day, so gather a team of cheerleaders and buy them a beer.
