Question:

How do I pick a table tennis net?

Table Tennis Net Selection

• "Universal" Ping Pong Net and post Sets- Most nets are designed to clamp directly onto a table top of any brand. Some sets, which have extra wide clamp openings will also fit tables with thick framing in the center area. "Universal net/posts may not fit some tables designed for use with a dedicated net/post set. "Universal" net sets must usually be removed before moving or storing the table. They are often sold separately from the table, allowing you to customize your choice of table & net qualities and features.

• "Special" or "dedicated" Ping Pong Net and Post Sets- These net and post sets are designed to fit specific roll-away style tables by attaching to the table frame or other special fittings. They can often be left on the table even in storage or roll-away position, but usually have less adjustability than tournament nets.

• Tournament Approved Table Tennis Net Sets- Approved net & post sets include adjustable net height, and all must include a cord through the top of the net with adjustable tension, and 6 inch extension beyond the side of the table. This is a 72inch table tennis net.

• Home/Recreational Table Tennis Net Sets- These usually lack some of the features and adjustability of tournament nets and use thinner, lighter bracket materials not suited to repeated removal and installation on table.

Ping Pong Net Assembly

• The playing surface shall be divided into two "courts" of equal size by a vertical net running parallel to the end lines.
• The table tennis net assembly shall consist of the net, its suspension, and the supporting posts, including the clamps attaching them to the table.
• The net shall be suspended by a cord attached at each end to an upright post 15.25 cm. (6 in.) high, the outside limits of the post being 15.25 cm. outside the side lines.
• The net, with its suspension, along its whole length, shall be 15.25 cm. (6 in.) above the playing surface. The bottom of the net, along its whole length, shall be as close as possible to the playing surface and the ends of the net shall be as close as possible to the supporting posts.
