As shown in the drawing and, particularly, in FIG. 1, in order to avoid the maneuvering handles 11'a to 11'd and 12'a to 12'd permanently projecting from the walls 5, which would increase the size of this table football machine to no useful purpose, in the zone of each bearing 9 corresponding to a maneuvering handle, each wall 5 has a recess 17a to 17c and 18a to 18c capable of receiving this handle when the rod with which it is associated is displaced to the end of travel in the direction of its free end.
As shown in the drawing, this table football machine consists, as is known per se, of a box structure 2 whose rectangular base 3, which reproduces a football pitch, is surrounded by four vertical walls, namely two transverse walls 4 and two longitudinal walls 5.
In any case, the invention will be satisfactorily understood with the aid of the following description and with reference to the appended schematic drawing which represents, by way of nonlimiting example, an embodiment of this table football machine:
It should also be noted that the arrangement of the table football machine according to the invention does not involve any weakening of the rods supporting the players and that there is, moreover, no notable effect on its cost price.
