Question:

What are some features of ping pong tables?

Basic knowledge of Ping Pong Table

• Top Thickness: table tennis table tops are usually 1/2" to 1" thick. The best (and more expensive) tables have the thickest tops. A thicker top enhances bounce quality and consistency and tends to retain its playing characteristics longer.
• Frame Thickness: Larger size legs and support framing improve table durability if frequently stored and setup rather than left in place. A larger, sturdier frame also contributes to bounce quality and consistency. A larger frame can also prevent warpage over the years.
• Wood: Most ping pong table tops are made of wood. These should not be exposed to excessive humidity, moisture, or temperature extremes.
• Aluminum: Tables using aluminum have a great resistance to moisture and warpage. These tables are suitable for outdoor patio usage.
• Roll-Away: These ping pong tables usually have halves of the table attached to a center frame with wheels allowing quick set-up and fold up for storage. Some Roll-Always have 4 wheels on each side allowing each half to be rolled away separately.
• Playback feature: Some tables can be used by one player alone for practice by raising one half of the table to the storage position to be used as a practice backboard.
• Permanent Net: A few roll-away tables have net brackets permanently attached to the frame for both playing and storage. This type makes setup a little faster, but is usually less adjustable and sturdy than separate net and post sets, which are preferred for club and tournament use.
• Outdoor Use: Aluminum surface tables (encapsulating wood) are weather resistant for outdoor use.
• Net Included: Most tables come with a net and post included.
• Compact Storage: When not in use, these tables store in a smaller space, particularly important for some clubs, schools or recreational facilities storing multiple tables in limited storage space.
• Leg Thickness: The thicker the legs, the more stable the table will be in terms of its tendency to remain ion place.
• Casters: The larger the casters, the easier the table will be to move around.
