 Stiga Chicago Open 2022 Table Hockey Tournament



July 23, 2022


What you need to know:

*The Stiga table hockey tournament will take place on Saturday, July 23, 2022. Doors open at 9:15 a.m. Player meeting at 9:45 a.m.. First puck drops at 10 a.m. There will be two round robins, a lunch break, and playoffs.

*If there is enough interest, we will hold a Coleco tournament on Friday late afternoon. It would be played on the Carleco/SOHO-style games. Players can bring their own games. We will have 3-4 games on hand. Feels like 8 player-minimum to make that a go, but we'll see how it all shakes out.

*This is the tournament formerly known as the Stiga U.S. Open. Jim Rzonca retired from running it. Eric Krol continues as the organizer.

*Stiga registration fee of $30 for players who have played in a USTHA/ITHF event before. For first-time players in a USTHA/ITHF event, the cost is $15. For players 14 and under, it's $15. Coleco registration fee: $15 with a paid Stiga registration or $25 for Coleco only. Prices are good until July 22, 2022. It's $5 more after that. You can pay via PayPal or Venmo if you'd like. In fact, that's preferred. Please email for details. All prices in US dollars.

*Stiga tournament is sanctioned and part of USTHA/CTHA North American Tour and ITHF World Tour.

*We will post updates on the tournament Facebook page, which is HERE.

*Once again, there will be a free raffle of NHL and table hockey merchandise.

*To register please e-mail Eric Krol at

*Venue is the same as 2020 and 2021. We'll be playing in the banquet room at Front Row. It's a sports bar and grill. The address is 14903 Founders Crossing, Homer Glen, IL 60491. It's about 15-20 minutes from the old venue in Lemont. Front Row website

*Lunch. You might have noticed the entry fee has been cut by 40% over previous years. We're hoping that you use the savings to buy some lunch at Front Row. There is no group tab. Everyone responsible for your own lunch bill.

*Hotels. There are a group of hotels at Interstate 80 and LaGrange Road. The cluster includes a Country Inn and Suites, a Hilton Garden Inn and a Super 8. A Holiday Inn Express in Lockport is about 10 minutes away. It recently opened. Three miles east, at Interstate 80 and Harlem Avenue, there are even more hotels. Suggest you use google maps to search. There is another cluster of hotel in Bolingbrook at Interstate 55 and Route 53.
