So the aim of this article is to guide you through this crucial yet tricky process, so that you end up with the table of your dreams and long lasting companion.

Before you venture out on your journey to find the perfect ping pong table for yourself, ask yourself some questions. Questions like –

  • Do you want a table that’s portable and can be moved around?
  • Are you looking for an amateur or professional table?
  • What is your budget?

INDOOR OR OUTDOOR – THE BIG QUESTION

If you are a professional ping pong player who wishes to battle with your opponents, be it rain of snow, the indoor table is your thing. But if you are the kind of person who likes to take it easy, play with friends and family on a sunny day, go for the outdoor table.

Since outdoor tables are exposed to more elements as compared to the indoor tables, they have certain specifications which set them apart from the rest. To protect them against these elements that can be exposed to, outdoor tables are generally built stronger than their indoor counterparts. They have a lot of weight which has been added to the table with the help of galvanized steel undercarriages, or even concrete. This helps the table stay steady even with strong winds blowing. The upper surface of the ping pong table are also made up of materials which are weatherproof, so that they can resist sun or water damage. These extra specifications and features are what set outdoor tables apart from indoor tables, and can also result in higher costs as well. But with all these features, one must remember that being exposed to all these elements for so long can mean lesser durability of the outdoor tables, so think before you buy. Outdoor tables also require more maintenance than indoor tables.

DOES SIZE MATTER?

Of course it does. And this size solely depends on where you want to put your ping pong table. A standard table tennis table is about 9 feet long, 5 feet wide  and 2 and a half feet tall. According to table tennis regulations, the net of the table extends to about 6 inches from both the sides of the table, and 6 inches above it.

Outdoor ping pong tables don’t suffer much when it comes to space as they can always be moved outside, but this is an issue to be kept in mind for indoor tables. Depending on your space constraints at home, choose a table which best fits your home and your style. Keep  some space as a margin so that your paddles don’t touch the walls again and again. You know how annoying that can get, right?

WANT THE TABLE TO BE AS FLEXIBLE AS YOU?

Portability is one such aspect that depends on who chooses to buy the table. Some people are perfectly happy with the table having a fixed position in one corner of their home, while some like the adventure of moving it around to newer locations. You do you, but make sure you aren’t pushing the table way off its limits.

NOVICE OR PROFESSIONAL?

Now this factor depends completely on your personal ping pong skill levels. If you are just a beginner seeking for some good old fashioned fun as well as an occasional workout, go for a basic table which just about fulfills your needs. But if you are a professional and buying a ping pong table is worth much more than just pure entertainment purposes, then spending a couple more bucks on a table that actually suits your needs is what makes most sense. Again, this choice depends completely on your personal inclination towards the sport.

DOES THE TABLE VALUE YOUR POCKET?

I understand the urge to buy the best of whatever is available, but while making a purchase you must keep in mind the purpose of the purchase. If you overpay and under-use, you will somewhere down the line realise that you may have spent too much money unnecessarily. But also keep in mind that sometimes the cheapest tables are not the solution to being economically wise. Nothing hurts more than paying an amount for a product that’s below subpar.

BEAUTY LIES IN THE LITTLE DETAILS

Pay attention to the little details, trust me, they will help you in the long run. One such detail is that the table must be made of just one material without any mixing of materials. Mostly, wood is used, or some other material similar to wood as it makes the perfect surface for the ping pong ball to bounce off of.

THE EVOLUTION OF THE PING PONG TABLE –

The game has a very humble history. Lawn tennis players who were unable to play out when the weather was not agreeable would play indoors, with anything that resembled a ball, ping pong paddle and a table. The materials of what were used as equipment did not matter, as long as the ball was being passed to one side of the table to another. This was in the 1880s. Cut to now, when this sport has become a worldwide phenomenon. Not only is this game great in terms of fun, but it is also a choice of sport for fitness freaks. Be it schools, gyms, offices and even homes, the presence of ping pong is everywhere. The minute you see a ping pong table, you know it’s going to be a good time!

This article has been brought to you after an extensive and detailed research and comprehensive trials of about 40 Ping Pong tables. We have  shortlisted just 25, which was quite the task, but we only want the best for our readers!

INDOOR PING PONG TABLE –

Cornilleau Sport 500 Indoor Table Tennis Table

 

Wanna know why I love this table so much? Why this table is an absolute winner for me is because of the array of perks it provides for its price. Sure, at $1149.99, it definitely is not cheap, but this is a price you must pay if you want a table as luxurious as this one. This table is easy to store, can be separated into 2 halves, used for multiple purposes and also has wheels! The locking system of the wheels is a good addition. Apart from the fact that the table has the perfect thickness for that dream-like bounce, it comes along with a net too, saving you the trouble of going to the store and buying one yourself.

 

Some of the perks that I absolutely loved –

 

  • Ball and racquet storage

At either ends of the table, players get a compartment attached to their side which makes the it very easy to store all your ping pong memorabilia in one single place

  • Weather resistant net

The polyester net can withstand any kind of weather

  • Sturdy legs

The arched legs of the table add extra strength and integrity to the table

  • Corner protectors

This additional protection feature saves the players from unnecessary snags and scratches

  • Wheel brakes

This helps you secure the table in place so that the wheels don’t make  the table wobble all over the place

  • Adjustable legs

Each of the legs of the table can be adjusted, which helps you make up for an uneven playing surface

  • Ball dispensers

Ball dispensers at either ends of the table for a smooth game.

  • Wheelchair friendly

A feature not many manufacturers think about, but it is such an important one.

 

 

Kudos to Cornilleau for creating such a beauty!

There was no way I could critique this table, it is just too good to be true.

With all the professional features at an affordable price, this table is just the one you need. This table is considerate towards your space, is super compact and fits into almost any closet space.

  • Playback position possible

The table can be separated into 2 halves making playback position possible

The added perks of including ping pong paddles, balls, ball holders and a net and post sold this item to me. I highly recommend this item to anyone who wishes to have a killer ping pong table in their home.

 

 

TABLES BASED ON AFFORDABILITY – ‘

 

What to expect from –

 

LOW PRICE RANGE ($100-$500) PING PONG TABLES-

Within this affordable price range, you can expect to get all the features of a beginners ping pong table. A decent (but not great) bounce of the table top, a smooth finish of the top, sturdy legs and portability. These features are generally present in all good ping pong tables, regardless of the price. But do keep in mind, that if you want something extraordinary, there is a price to pay for that! If you are lucky, tables costing around $400 and above might have roller casters, which makes moving the table around an absolute joy.

 

MID PRICE RANGE ($500-$900) PING PONG TABLES-

Ah, it’s true what they say, you know? Sometimes, money can buy you happiness. Happiness in the form of a gorgeous ping pong table. Within this price range, you can be sure of the fact that your table will come along with roller casters with a locking system, an easy-to-clip on ping pong net, a great table surface with enough bounce and some adjustable legs to make your ping pong experience all the more memorable. Be assured of great portability, ease in setting up and some great ping pong memories!

 

HIGH PRICE RANGE ($900-$2000) PING PONG TABLES-

Oh the price one has to pay for luxury! But I can say one thing without any hesitation – every buck spent on these luxury tables is so worth it. Look forward to rubber wheels as roller casters with safety locks, ping pong paddle holders, ball compartments, a table top made of quality materials and an exquisite bounce, some corner protectors for safety and a net and post set. These perks come at a price, as you can see, but is completely worth it, in my professional opinion.
