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.
Secondly, is 15mm good for table tennis?
It also provided a consistent bounce yet not quite as good as you would find on a thicker (and more expensive) competition table. You will get better performance from an 18mm, 22mm or 25mm table tennis table. But a 15mm table is good enough. I recommend staying away from 12mm tables – these are horrible to play on!
Beside this, how much is a good ping pong table?
With that said , the average cost of a ping pong table falls in the range of $150 – $400 for indoor , $400 – $700 for outdoor , $200 – $300 for conversion tops and $1,000+ for luxury , high-end tables.
What size is a small table tennis table?
The mini tables are about the size as a small home office desk (approx. 125-136 cm x 75 cm), which means that they are easy to accommodate almost anywhere.
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.
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.
18mm thickness – These are ideally the minimum standard needed for a table and are decent for household use. 22mm thickness – These have a good bounce and they’re ideal for clubs.
It’s 3/4 of the size of a full-size table so is ideal if you don’t quite have the room for a full-size competition-size table. … That being said, if you’re looking for a table to give a really good bounce we wouldn’t recommend getting a mini table tennis table.
The Butterfly Centrefold 25 is a great table for anyone who needs a good quality match standard table but also needs a table which is easy to manoeuvre and store away. … I’d recommend this table for anyone who’s serious about their game and wants to use a top quality table tennis table.
There is a big difference between indoor and outdoor table tennis tables. Outdoor table tops are designed to stay outdoors all year round. Indoor table tennis tables must be kept inside all year round. An indoor table tennis table uses a wooden table top which could become worn when put in an unheated room.
