How to Choose a Table Tennis Table

You're considering buying a table tennis game table. You are making a great decision. It will be something you will never regret. There are many things you need to consider before making your purchase. The following article will discuss the most important factors to consider when choosing a table tennis table.

There are subtle differences between indoor and outdoor quality ping pong tables. Outdoor tables are made from durable materials that will not deteriorate or fade in the elements. If the table is going to be used outdoors, it should not be stored in a garage or shed.

There is an important tradeoff. An outdoor table tennis table's playing surface is generally less than an indoor table tennis table of the same price. Your indoor table tennis table can still be used outdoors, but it is best to bring it inside if it rains or in direct sunlight.

A tabletop conversion kit is the first thing you should consider. You can convert any table or pool table into a tabletop suitable for table tennis. You can also add a net (which is usually included) and you are good to go. Conversion kits can be folded in half to make them portable and compact. 

The quality of these conversion kits can be very different, from the lowest to the highest quality units to the most expensive. This is due to the thickness of the table and the fact you are merely putting a fancy board over a regular table.

However, as with the conversion tops, these types of tables will only allow you to progress so far with the sport, and if you're serious about raising your skill level then a full-sized table tennis table is the way to go.
