Please note that the posting system used on this website may be difficult to navigate.

We plan to move away from the posts to static content in the near future to eliminate some of this confusion.
Currently operating weekly NCA sanctioned Carpetball games, the Central Ohio Carpetball Society is dedicated to professional and amateur Carpetball throughout Central Ohio and bringing fun and innovation to the sport.
For FREE information on building your own Carpetball table, see the National Carpetball Association website for details. Check out our posts for details and photos related to our very own Carpetball table, as seen below. Over time, we plan to publish more information related to how we play the game and ideas for game modifiers to naturally enhance your Carpetball experience.
I often refer to our table as our prototype because it is our very first table build, built with some mismatched parts and some roadside finds. We expect to be building new tables as time goes by with many lessons learned from our first project. This table will always be near and dear to our hearts.
Carpetball 3d: The Game
If you are not ready to take on the challenge of building your own table, in our spare time, we are developing Carpetball 3d: The Game to ensure everyone can have a realistic Carpetball experience from the comfort of their own home. Though the real thing can never be duplicated, we are certainly going to try our best.
According to the National Carpetball Association, the correct name for our sport is Carpetball. While the names Carpet Ball and Gutter Ball have been tossed around, our society agrees that these are incorrect when referring to our sport. It is also the opinion of the C.O.C.S. that neither Carpet Ball nor Gutter Ball are appropriate terms to describe the skilled sport of Carpetball. See: Controversies
It has also recently come to our attention that Carpetball is also known in some circles as Torpedo Ball.
We hope that, over time, we can show that we have made a difference. In March 2014, we founded the Central Ohio Carpetball Society and expect to see an uptick in search trends as we spread the word and get more and more people excited and interested in learning more about this wonderful sport.
