Table Football - A potted history

Subbuteo was invented and produced by Peter Adolph in Tunbridge Wells.  His Langton Green based business became an international phenomenon.

From an early age Peter Adolph had two great passions - ornithology and football.  After serving in the airforce in World War II, Peter returned home to live with his mother in Langton Green.  He worked for the Pensions Office and sold birds eggs for extra money.  Inspired by a button from Woolworths, Peter thought that he could improve on the table football games popular at the time.  He made a base using the button, weighted down with a washer.  The result was to revolutionise table football as it allowed players to spin and curve - just like a real footballer.

By 1948 Peter's table football game had been patented as 'Subbuteo', the Latin name for his favourite bird, the Hobby Hawk.  Subbuteo was sold by mail order through adverts in Boys Own Magazine and at School Boy Exhibitions.  By 1950 Peter was able to give up his full time job to concentrate on Subbuteo.                          

Over the next fifteen years the popularity of Subbuteo grew beyond all expectation.  It reached a peak when England hosted the World cup in 1966.  By 1968 Peter could no longer keep up with demand.  To provide investment for the company, Peter sold Subbuteo to Waddingtons but stayed on as Managing Director. Peter, who had had complete control of the company in the past, found it difficult to adjust to being a company man.  In 1970 he resigned from Subbuteo.  He said that it was like losing an arm.

Peter Adolph died in 1994.  He lived in the Tunbridge Wells area much of his life and was well known for his love of sports cars and ornithology.  And as for football - he was a Queen's Park Rangers fan all his life.
