Outdoor vs Indoor Table Tennis Tables
The two major classification of tables are Indoor and Outdoor tables. There are numerous factors involved that make each type of table unique for it’s specific playing conditions. Outdoor tables are made up of a material that is designed to not fade from long hours of direct sunlight and rain. This distinction is very important when considering the type of table you should buy. Although outdoor tables are designed to not warp from harsh weather conditions, this has a direct affect on the playing surface. The surface must be re-inforced with different material that affects the bounce quality.

Indoor tables are generally built to a higher standard. The manufacturers don’t have to weather proof the table top, the wheels don’t have to be as large, and it doesn’t need to be able to move as well. That being said, the indoor tables are only suited for indoor play. Indoor tables will generally have a better and more uniform bounce than outdoor tables.

Folded table tennis table
Folded Version

This is one of the best tables for playing ping pong. The surface offers good bounce in play and the assembly is fairly straight forward. Good quality table and a reasonable price. The net which is included is also sturdy. The paddle and ball holders along the side are useful and convenient. Most of the reviewers report that the table is a great value for the cost and that they would recommend it to others. Although there are less expensive tables on the market, this one is superior in quality and well worth the extra few dollars that is costs. Some users reported that they love the table, but they had difficulty with the assembly and that the instructions are very complicated and should be simplified.

Pros

This table features a solid and durable construction and a useful design that even includes paddle and ball holders along each side of the table. The table is constructed with solid ¾ inch wood table top and steel railing rim and legs. High quality workmanship and durable table that folds up easily for storage and is easy to move from one place to another with the fixed wheels and casters on the legs.

Cons

The net comes in a little short of being adequate but it is fixable by tying it up with string. It takes about 3 hours to assemble and many of the hardware pieces are similar which could lead to confusion if they’re not laid out in order first. It comes with two fixed wheels and two fixed casters, some customers would rather that all of the wheels were removable casters. The instruction manual is complicated.

Conclusion
