Table Tennis Tables Buying Guide

At first look, it might be difficult to distinguish one table tennis table from another. And for purely recreational use, the differences might be too subtle to investigate deeply. But it’s worth being versed in the basic variations so you can purchase a table that best suits your family’s needs.

Types of Table Tennis Tables

Types of Table Tennis Tables

At the outset, where you’ll use your table determines what kind of table you need. After that, other nice features might be important.

Indoor

A table tennis table for indoor use only has a surface made of wood, particleboard, or engineered wood, such as Masonite brand. Table surfaces can be ½ to 1 inch thick, but a table surface at least ¾ inch thick is recommended because it resists warping and provides the best bounce during play.

Outdoor

For outdoor use, such as in a garage, on a covered patio, or in a pool house, a table tennis table needs a surface made of an aluminum-plastic composite to resist warping. The supporting metal frame also must be made of weatherproof, rust-resistant materials.

Fold-Up

Some tables fold at the middle, which lets you move or store them. A hinge mechanism and the supporting frame on wheels make this possible.

Practice Feature

If you play table tennis alone or plan to spend a lot of time practicing, you want a table with a “play-back” feature. Half the table folds upward, perpendicular to the table surface, creating a practice backboard to bounce the ball off.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here are a few other things to take into account when you shop:

Removable Net vs. Stationary Net

Some nets and net brackets are fixed in place. This is common with fold-up tables. This makes the net easy to set up, but it doesn’t allow for adjustment if the net bracket becomes bent.

Ball and Paddle Storage

Some tables have caddies built into them where you can store balls and paddles when not in use.

Stability

When the table tennis table is set up, be sure it’s level and stable. Is the undercarriage supportive? Are the legs thick and substantial? If so, the table will last longer and withstand frequent or aggressive play.

Wheels

If you buy a table on wheels, make sure the casters are large and sturdy. They should swivel and lock, which makes the table more stable when you move it or play on it.

Practice Gap

If you buy a table with the practice feature, check the way the mechanism works. Some mechanisms leave a gap at the juncture of the two table halves, which can be tricky to play across, whereas other mechanisms ensure the two table halves abut.
