    From my experience, (we have the same kind of "flat landscape" football table at work) the problem is the ball sometimes (too much often in my opinion :p ) is stuck in a corner and doesn't come back "alone" in the field.

    On "professionnal" table the corner are a little bit higher than the rest of the field, so the ball can come back in game (it's only for information, that's a great instructables and great idea)

    However I think molding the players is a better idea.
