Then, what size should a table tennis table be?
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.
Why are table tennis tables so expensive?
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.
1-star and 2-star balls are less durable and they are usually bought in mass in packs of 100 or 200 to be used for rallying or practice. The three star ratings represent the best balls and they are the only balls you should be using in matches and competition.
According to the laws of table tennis, a player can win a game of table tennis by scoring 11 points – with one point awarded for every infringement. Every player gets to serve twice in a row. The first to 11 points is declared the winner.
Ping-pong tables come in all different shapes and sizes. Well, maybe not, seeing as they are all rectangular and the overwhelming majority of tables have the same dimensions. There is one standard size defined by the ITTF (International Table Tennis Federation), and all manufacturers comply.
Most tables are not hard to put together but take someone with a little patience. Show the table assembly to your local handyman and see if they want to take on the project. They usually take anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 1/2 hours to put together.
