Simon Winfield and Bill Harper had for years worked in the corporate world but both harboured hopes of a joint business venture, something unique and with the potential for fun – an antidote to the every day grind of being part of ‘the machine’. Uncovering a chance find from a car boot sale during a house move led to the magic moment which inspired the foundation of their dream company. The battered remains of a vintage mini-golf game brought the house move to a halt as they remembered “all the fun we had playing it as kids and how it brought the whole family together!”
Could this be the enterprise the friends had been looking for? Was there an opportunity to re-introduce the game to the UK? Maybe it would also be possible to re-engineer it to play other sports? After bouncing many ideas and identifying all possible opportunities Simon and Bill came up with their exciting new venture…
Simon and Bill initially re-created the American 1920’s parlour game of mini-golf with their MiniMaster Golf. This proved to be a huge success and from this the team have moved forward to the creation of MiniMaster Football.
The mechanical prototype for the football figure was tested and retested until perfected – players can now shoot distances up to 4m! The figures have been crafted with care so that they never need to gather dust in the box but can be left out on display in the office or home – to reach for at any moment to enjoy that fantastic winning shot goal! The game comes complete with all accessories, including the 1:8 scale footballer; display stand; 5 lightweight balls, goal frame and net. All figures are made to be custom-painted by their owners – be as inventive and detailed as you like!
The perfect combination of a fun sporting game and decorative personalised accessory, to be enjoyed either with or without friends, at home or in the office, or to re-create that winning free kick from last weekend! With the World Cup around the corner, there’s no excuse not to perfect your technique!
