Splash And Relax Float On Air

Splash and Relax have a comprehensive set of games tables for all occasions and one of the best is their range of air hockey tables. Air hockey has grown in popularity over the years and it is now a great family game which can be played by everyone. It is particularly good for the energetic teenager as it will provide a game which requires a good deal of exercise and is a very fast and competitive game.

Splash and Relax have a wide range of air hockey tables from the simple and relatively cheap table to the luxury air hockey table that is a good and expensive full sized air hockey table. The cheaper tables are called air hockey tables but they have a table covered in a plastic which allows the puck to travel fast over its surface but is not air assisted. The luxury tables have sophisticated air cushion systems in which air is blown under the table and is released through a number of very small holes in the surface of the playing table. This allows the puck to slide smoothly over the surface and results in a very fast game.

There is a table for almost anybody who wants to play and this is a game that can be started on simple plastic base table and then progressed to a major luxury table as experience and skill improve.

The basic tables are usually smaller than the typical air hockey tables and fold up so that they can be stowed away after use. The luxury tables are almost always a table that is quite large and of a permanent construction and are ideal for a special games room. Splash and Relax have a number of top of the range tables that can be used by single or double team players that can be used at a standard close to a professional level.

Splash and Relax are keen to give every keen air hockey player the chance to get equipment that will improve their game to the best level possible and have taken a good deal of time and effort to get air hockey tables that will allow the players to achieve their dreams. To this purpose Splash and Relax are pleased to offer three air hockey tables that are 7 feet long and of a very high quality and which match those which will be found in arcades. They have excellent high powered motors, which generate a great air cushion for the puck to float on and full electronic scoring boards and scoring systems. These are not quite too the American World Championship standard but as there are no professional leagues in the UK this is as close to perfection as will be found in the UK. The tables provide a fast and accurate game, which provide players with the opportunity to play at professional level standards.

Splash and Relax – http://www.splashandrelax.co.uk – are pleased to promote air hockey and have a portfolio of equipment to allow any player to reach the best level possible.

Splash And Relax Bring Air Hockey To The Table

Splash and Relax are always increasing their range of great relaxing products and one of the best ways for the sporting activity of a household in the long winter months without braving the winter’s storms is by playing one of the many table games, which are available. Splash and Relax have worked hard to provide a range of good games tables and Air Hockey is becoming a firm favourite in many places.

This is a great game that can be played by 2 or 4 players and can bring in the whole of the family so that it becomes an inclusive family entertainment. Hockey may not be a standard British sport and especially the version which resembles ice hockey but most people have seen it on the television and soon become addicted to the game once they have played it for a while. It is also a game that can be played equally as well by the ladies. This sport requires skill and agility and a modicum of energy and will bring a great deal of sporting combat as well as a great deal of fun and enjoyment.

Splash and Relax have tried to pick a full range of air hockey tables from the small 3 feet fold away table for 2 people to the Vortex 7 feet Air Table for 2 or 4 people, with a cost range from £50 to £500 so that hopefully there is something for everyone. The larger units will fit into a games or activities room and come with all the modern additions.

The Vortex Air Hockey Table provides a great playing table with an air supply that gives great fast puck movement that will really test the skill of the players and make for a very energetic game. The 7 foot long table comes with an electronic scoring system that audibly tells you the score. It is a very presentable table finished in black with chrome effect corners and piping. The playing table looks excellent and will certainly take the players efforts and resist damage from pucks and strikers. The great thing about this game is that it does not require a vast space around the table in order to play the game, unlike snooker or pool the strikers are small and hand held and the players stand up to the table and whilst they require some space behind the table it is limited and the table can be accommodated in a standard sized room. Splash and Relax have recognised that space is often a limiting factor in deciding whether to get a games table and this sport certainly fulfils that requirement.

Splash and Relax – http://www.splashandrelax.co.uk – always try to make things easy and whilst many things that they supply are delivered to the door to reduce the cost they take a great deal of care in trying to offer a setting up service to the customer for many products. This service is great in taking out those annoying problems found in instruction books and provides a good deal of comfort by allowing the product to be erected and tested before it is passed over to the family.

30 Days to Go…Bronze, Silver & LASIK-for-the-GOLD!

Team LASIK-FOR-THE-GOLD, is a collection of champion Olympic athletes from across the country who have all had LASIK vision correction surgery by Cary M. Silverman, M.D., Medical Director of EyeCare 20/20.

30 Days to Go...Bronze, Silver & LASIK-for-the-GOLD!

With exactly one month to go to the start of the Winter Olympic Games, American athletes are scattered around the globe, some are desperately looking to secure their spot on the team, others making the final preparations of a never ending quest to deliver their life’s best performance next month in Vancouver, when it matters most. With the clock ticking, the LASIK-For-The-Gold Winter Olympians appear poised to bring home their share of Olympic hardware. Here is an update on each of the world class athletes who are patients of Cary M. Silverman, M.D. and the team of eye care professionals at EyeCare 20/20:

Katherine Reutter (short track speedskating) – Reutter is now a 17-time world cup medalist who is locked-n-loaded for her Olympic debut. She will compete in four different events and is considered to be one of Team USA’s most likely Olympic medalists.

Chad Hedrick (speedskating) – Already a gold, silver and bronze medalist from the 2006 Olympics in Torino, Hedrick has recently returned to his championship form and earned medals in both of his last two world cup events, including a gold medal in Calgary, Canada in December. Hedrick will square off against fellow American Shani Davis in the 1500 meters at this year’s Games in what promises to be one of the must-see showdown events of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Curt Tomasevicz (bobsled) – A pusher behind U.S. driver Steve Holcomb in Team U.S.A.’s number one sled the ‘Night Train’, Tomasevicz and his teammates are on the podium more often than they are off of it. They are considered the team to beat when the Olympic medals are on the line next month.

Eric Pac (bobsled) – Long since considered ‘likely to make the Olympic Team’, Pac has recently shown that simply getting to the Olympics isn’t good enough. A world cup bronze medal in Salt Lake City in November turned heads on the international bobsled circuit and marked Pac as someone to keep an eye on in Vancouver. She currently holds a 5th place ranking in the overall World Cup standings.

Molly Engstrom (hockey) – A bronze medalist at the 2006 Olympics, a World Champion, and a long time member of the U.S. National Team, Engstrom and her teammates are highly likely to do battle with the host Canadian team with gold medals on the line. In this heated international rivalry, silver doesn’t count.

Dan Joye (luge) – Joye, who is part of the doubles luge team of Niccum & Joye, will enter the Games, his second Olympics, as part of the number one ranked U.S. sled. A recent world cup fourth place finish marked the team’s best ever placing – one step up in Vancouver will put Joye on the podium.
