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.
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′.
