DAVE COURINGTON Inducted 1999

Considered the father of the modern Tornado pro tour, Courington was instrumental in creating today's American foosball-playing environment. Originally from Alabama, Dave began his career in Houston, Texas as a player, promoter and operator of tables in the early 1980s. His overall contributions in the areas of table design and manufacturing, along with his guidance of the Tornado professional tour from the mid 1980s through the late '90s make him one of the most influential foosball men of the last twenty years. Dave has been a major part of the table soccer scene for more than three decades and continues to be a bigger-than-life presence on the American and international pro foosball tour.
