Ping pong tables vary in size and color, depending on whether they are used in professional tournaments or simpler recreational games. A typical table is usually made of wood. A net (usualy white) runs across the middle. All pingpong tables have grid lines that determine the ‘In and Out’ zones. They usually have coated surfaces to resist scratching and fading.
Types of Ping Pong Tables
Kinds of Ping Pong Tables include the following:
Recreational ping pong tables
Recreational ping pong tables are made of green wood boards three-fourth-inch-thick.
Outdoor ping pong tables
Outdoor ping pong tables are usually made of lightweight and weatherproof aluminum. They have warp-resistant boards and silk screened grid lines for an even and smooth playing surface. They are held up by sturdy metal legs coated to prevent corrosion and rust.
International tournament ping pong tables
International tournament ping pong tables are regulation tables made of 7/8 inch-thick composite boards. They are used in professional games. Most have steel tube legs and swivel wheels for mobility. Some tournament pingpong tables can even be folded.
Choosing Ping Pong Tables (Buying tips)
Features: Choose a ping pong table with a flat, smooth, and even table with clearly-drawn grid lines. Get a weatherproof ping pong table if you intend to use it outdoors.
