Table Tennis Tables
How big is a table tennis table?
Classic table tennis tables have a standard size. Here, the length measures 2.74 meters and the width 1.525 meters. The height, which is measured from the floor to the edge of the table, is 0.76 meters. Thereby, the official height of the table tennis net is 15.25 centimeters.
In addition to this classic measurement, there are midi table tennis tables as well as mini tables, which are equally suitable for children and adults. The midi plates are slightly smaller but possess the same height, while the mini plates are significantly smaller. However, there is no standard for these plates.
How much space do I need for my ping pong table?
You need enough space for a ping pong table. In addition to the dimensions of the table, the room needs to have enough room to move around. Ideally, it should be 30 square meters, so that you have two meters of space behind the table and one and a half meters at the sides. If your table tennis table is in the basement, you should also consider the ceiling height.
If you don't have that much space available in your house, it can also be worth buying a mini table tennis table or an outdoor table for the garden. Many models can also be folded, so you can store them more space-saving.
What material are table tennis tables made of?
The material of a table tennis table differs according to whether it is designed for indoor or outdoor use. For outdoor tables, a weatherproof material is absolutely necessary, such as melamine resin or, more rarely, aluminum-wood composite. In public facilities you will also often find slabs made of concrete. For indoors, the ping pong tables do not have to be weatherproof, so there it is usually fine chipboard or pressboard.
What color should I choose when buying a ping pong table?
The color of a ping pong table does not say much about the quality. In the past, most of the tops were green, but nowadays the color blue is more popular, especially in the professional field. The most important thing is that the white balls are easy to see and contrast with the plate. But there are also plates in grey or pink. So you can choose the color freely according to your taste.
How do I transport a ping pong table?
If you want to transport your ping pong table, for example when moving house, there are many things to consider. First of all, you should consider whether transporting a table tennis table that is already very old and partially damaged is even worth it. Indoor panels may weigh less, but they can break easily and need to be protected from moisture. Outdoor panels may be heavier, but they are also more durable.
First of all, you should dismantle the panel, i.e. unscrew the legs. Then you need a van with a large loading area or a large VW bus. Here the table tennis table fits without problems and should be well padded with blankets and cushions. Especially the corners should be adequately protected during transport.
Which table tennis table is suitable for outdoors?
For the outdoor area, whether in the garden or under the carport, you need a weatherproof plate, the moisture and UV rays do not mind. The best table tennis tables are made of weatherproof melamine resin. You should place them in a place that is windless and offers plenty of space.
Make sure that you protect the tabletop with a tarpaulin when it is not in use for a longer period of time. In the winter, it is best to store the table in your garage, garden shed or tool shed, so that it is not damaged by frost or other influences.
Which table tennis table is suitable for children?
With table tennis tables for children, stability is usually the most important thing, because children also like to crawl over or under the table. Make sure that your table tennis table has thick legs and if possible a cross bracing to the sides. So the construction is particularly stable.
Folding plates are well suited if children only want to play a round now and then. However, just the folding also represents a particular danger for children. Therefore, so-called mini table tennis tables are well suited for children, which are space-saving, stable and significantly cheaper.
How do I clean my table tennis table?
Outdoor table tennis tables can be cleaned with a soft broom from dirt. Before winter, it is best to clean the entire table thoroughly with a cloth, lukewarm water and washing-up liquid. You can also clean indoor tables in this way, but you must not use too much water and must dry the table thoroughly afterwards so that no moisture penetrates.
For cleaning, you can use both simple household remedies, such as washing-up liquid, as well as professional table tennis table cleaners from the manufacturer. Generally speaking, a folded tabletop is less likely to accumulate dirt and with proper care, you can extend the life of the tabletop. Also remember to regularly oil or grease the frame.
