Table Tennis Table Selection Guide

General Table Selection Information

Top Thickness: Table tops are usually 1/2" to 1" thick. The best, (and more expensive) tables have the thickest tops. A thicker top enhances bounce quality and consistency and tends to retain it's playing characteristics longer.

Frame Thickness: Larger size legs and support framing improve table durability if frequently stored and setup rather than left in place. A larger, sturdier frame also contributes to bounce quality and consistency. A larger frame can also prevent warpage over the years.

                                                           Wood vs. Aluminum  

Wood: Most table tops are made of wood. These should not be exposed to excessive humidity, moisture, or temperature extremes.

Aluminum: Tables using aluminum have a great resistance to moisture and warpage. These tables are suitable for outdoor patio usage.

                                                                      Features

Roll-Away: These tables usually  have halves of the table attached to a center frame with wheels allowing quick set-up and fold up for storage. Some Roll-Aways have 4 wheels on each side allowing each half to be rolled away separately.

Playback feature: Some tables can be used by one player alone for practice by raising one half of the table to the storage position to be used as a practice backboard.

Permanent Net: A few roll-away tables have net brackets permanently attached to the frame for both playing and storage. This type makes setup a little faster, but is usually less adjustable and sturdy than separate net and post sets, which are  preferred for club and tournament use.

Outdoor Use: Aluminum surface tables (encapsulating wood) are weather resistant for outdoor use.

Net Included: Most tables come with a net and post included.

Compact Storage: When not in use, these tables store in a smaller space, particularly important for some clubs, schools or recreational facilities storing multiple tables in limited storage space.

Leg Thickness: The thicker the legs, the more stable the table will be in terms of it's tendency to remain ion place.

Casters: The larger the casters, the easier the table will be to move around.
