What should I look for when buying a table tennis table?
Play Surface: The first thing to look for in a table tennis table is the thickness of the top. Tops will range in thickness from ½” to 1”. The playing surface should be at least 3/4 inches or 19mm thick. Anything of lesser thickness will warp too easily and not give consistent ball bounce.
Playing style: Ping Pong uses sandpaper which provides medium to slow speed and medium spin. Table tennis has a faster pace and a higher amount of spin. Table tennis has an offensive and defensive playing style. Ping Pong can mix both playing-styles in a game.
Stiga table tennis rubbers are made in Japan, whilst ready-made rackets, balls and bags etc are made in China. Stiga table tennis tables are made in three factories around the world.
MD Sports isn’t as well-known in the table tennis industry as Joola or Stiga, but they’re still a fairly established brand selling a wide variety of indoor games. The table’s measurements are regulation standard – five by nine feet – and the net is tournament-grade.
Its no brainer – shipping a table, storing a table etc will cost more than say of equal value in rubbers. Cost must include freight, storage, return on investment-profit margin, marketing etc and this is only the retailer part. ITTF approved tables are mostly 25mm, and cheap tables are 19mm or even lower.
The standard size of a ping pong table measures 9′ long by 5′ wide, so your ping pong room needs to be at least this size. If you’re just playing solo with one side of the table folded up, the length of the table is only around 5′.
The Ideal Standard
If space and budget allows we recommend that the table you purchase should meet International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) requirements which state that: A table should measure 2.74m long, 1.525m wide and be 76cm high. The ball should bounce 23cm high when dropped from a height of 30cm.
If you want to do serious training, a ¾ size table is not so good. You’ll have to adjust from playing on a smaller table at home to a bigger table at a table tennis club, which isn’t ideal. Some people have a room which is big enough, but the space is already taken up by a dining room table.
