So, you want to buy a table tennis table? I admit!

Playing table tennis / ping pong is a mighty fun pastime. It is also a sport played around the globe and attracts both genders alike. If you have a liking to it, you may find yourself spending hours at the ends of the table smashing balls about. But before buying a table, be sure to make up your mind that buying the table is a good decision.

The first thing to consider is whether it is suitable for you to buy a table or not. This is not a small hitch and requires plenty of consideration. Buying a table requires a significant investment and you have to make sure it does not end up catching dust in one of the seldom visited areas of your house.

Before Buying a Ping Pong Table: 4 Important Tips to Keep in Mind

1. Give me room!

So the first thing you have to consider is whether you have the space for the table. The ping pong table has dimensions of 9 feet by 5 feet. Plus giving some elbowroom of at least a meter on each side, the space needed to enjoy a game is considerable. You won’t be fitting it into just any room so be prepared to dedicate one to it.

Most tables fold up and can be kept leaning on the wall, but if you take that option, be prepared to clear up some space and then setting up the table each time you play. You will also need to clear up once you are done playing. Often, the effort required to do so proves to be a great hindrance for the not-so-passionate (lazy?) players.

You may place your table outdoors to allow freedom of space, and for that, you may look for an outdoor table which costs higher. We shall talk about outdoor tables in a bit. There are also convertible tables which can be set up on your snooker/pool tables if you have one but the problem with those are that the pool table sticks out from each end (unless you have a smaller pool table) and the height of the table is also noticeably higher than ideal.

2. It takes 2 to tango!

Playing table tennis also has a major need for a partner because, well, you can’t play without one can you? (Unless you’re superman or flash)!  So make sure you have a partner before investing in a table. Family members are ideal partners as they tend to lurk around often. Investing in a table is usually only worth it if you can play regularlyso make sure the table can see enough gametime.

3. Outdoor vs Indoor Ping Pong Tables

I mentioned outdoor tables earlier and they are exactly like indoor tables. Only a notch sturdier and more resistant to the elements. They also come at a quite higher price. As a rule, you should only look to buy an outdoor table if you’re looking to keep it outdoors all the time. Otherwise an indoor table will suffice. Keep in mind that even though outdoor tables do a better job at fending off weather effects, table tennis tables are not meant to be kept outdoors and so the table will soon enough start to show signs of wear. The extra price does help in the longevity but don’t expect miracles.

4. Thickness is key!

The most important attribute of a table is the thickness of its surface. All the gloss and shine mean nothing if the thickness isn’t there, so keep the thickness your main concern when buying a table. Thicker tables have better bounce and generally perform much better. They are also inevitably more costly as manufacturing thick table tennis surfaces is not cheap. Its simple math: the thicker the table, the better the table.

So now that we have a fairly decent outlook on the science behind buying tables, let’s get down to business and rummage through a small catalogue of tables to find your fit.

The STIGA Outdoor Vapor Table is a fantastic option for an outdoor table. The table has a very sturdy build that is designed to fend off anything Mother Nature throws at it. The table has a solid steel frame and a rust proof, powder coated undercarriage that makes it very muscular against the forces of nature.

The table is made to be portable and it folds up into two parts. The table also is easy to transport around due to its wheels and light weight. The table features leg levelers that lend ease when setting up on non-uniform surfaces and the lock on the wheel make it very stable when set up. The table is very compact when folded which makes it really easy to store.

The table boasts silk screen printed lines so that the ball is not deviated in the slightest when it hits the lines on the table. The material also resists warping and chipping and can stand up to very rough use due to its high level of durability. The bounce is not the same as on a wooden table though and the table tends to play faster and skidder than a normal indoor table.

Overall, the table is a fantastic purchase. The light weight of the table may make it less suitable for windy environments but the table can stand up very well against other elements of nature. With the easy to assemble design and a low price, you get a lot of positives out of this table.
