Frequently asked questions

 

 DO I NEED AN INDOOR OR OUTDOOR PING PONG TABLE ? 

Indoor ping pong tables aren't resistant to weather conditions but provide a great bounce quality at an affordable price. It is important though not to store them in humid places or locations subject to temperature changes that would cause cracks on the top panels. Prolonged stay under the sun (or even brief) can also cause the table to bend. Outdoor tables are much more resistant to impact and can stay outside all year long therefore, they are much more durable.

HOW TO ASSEMBLE MY PING PONG TABLE ? 

Tables are delivered in kits with many pre-assembled pieces and an instruction manual. Furthermore we recommend that you check out the Youtube assembly video dedicated to your table before you start off. Assembly usually takes bewteen 1h30 to 2h for 2 persons.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE MOST AFFORDABLE AND MOST EXPENSIVE TABLE TENNIS TABLES?

Choosing the superior table, despite being more expensive, will provide a better bounce quality (because of a thicker panel) and additional features to the table such as more robust legs and frame, big wheels, better net and options to adjust the table.
