How To Choose The Right Table Tennis Table


Whether you are choosing a table tennis table for your home, office, or recreational center, our team here at has you covered.  Our team has compiled a list of questions to help make it easier to choose the best table for you.  The following questions are important to consider when making a purchase:

  • How much do I want to pay?

  • How and where am I going to utilize my ping pong table?

  • What is the layout of my room?  

  • Do I require a table tennis table that is stationary or do I need one that has wheels?

  • What are my storage requirements?

    Before you set out to look for a ping pong table that is right for you, it’s important to be aware of the different types of tables.   

    Although many table tennis tables fall into multiple categories simultaneously, generally, table tennis tables can be broken down into six (6) different types: 1) indoor; 2) outdoor; 3) rollaway; 4) stationary; 5) beginner & recreational level; 6) advanced & tournament level.

    Indoor Table Tennis Tables

    Indoor table tennis tables are designed for indoor usage, typically for inside the home, office, or recreation center. Usually, the table’s top is made of material that isn’t condensation-resistant, which means the table tennis table could have a much shorter lifespan if used for outdoor play or left outdoors for an extended period of time. Please view our fine collection of indoor table tennis tables: Indoor Table Tennis Tables.

    Outdoor Table Tennis Tables

    Outdoor table tennis tables are designed for outdoor usage and typically have a more durable table top that is made to ward off the possible harsh effects of rain, snow, and warmer temperatures. These tables typically will feature technology that prevents expansion and contraction under variable weather conditions. Please view our fine collection of outdoor table tennis tables: Outdoor Table Tennis Tables.
