So if you’re in the market for a table tennis table here are some great tips for you. I just got one for my family and here’s what I learnt during the buying process. If you’ve ever bought one then I would really lie to hear about your experiences and how you choose the best suited one for your family.

Here are some great ideas to help you buy the perfect table tennis table:

Don’t buy a table for a pro

It goes without saying that if you are buying a table to use at home then you don’t need to go for one of the top brands, it’s not an international tournament you’re playing in so please forget about the most expensive options.

Is it the first table you’re buying?

If it’s the first time you’re getting a table for your family then it’s always best to look at the lower end of the market, this way you won’t worry too much about the family damaging it as they learn the ropes of the game. Home Leisure Direct have some of the best options on the market, take a look at them before you make any decision I did and I am very happy for it!

Is it going to be fixed or moved around?

Work out whether you are going to be leaving the able permanently in place. If you are going to be packing it away on a regular basis then make sure that you buy a table that is simple to move and also to set up. Remember that you’re hopefully going to be a little tired after each time you use the table, the last thing you want to be doing is struggling to put it away!
