Buying an Outdoor Table Tennis Table

by Lisarit Richie Best Choice

Table tennis or ping pong is played in singles or doubles so there would either be two or four players playing at the same time. The manner the game works is almost similar to tennis. A racket is used to hit the ball. The playing surface is a table tennis table much like a mini tennis court. The legal measurement of the table tennis table is 9 ft x 5 ft x 30 in high (2.7 m x 1.5 m x .762 m). The usual colors of the table tennis table are green, dark blue or black. A net serves as the divider.

The table tennis table maybe the playing surface but the International Table Tennis Federation (ITTF) requires a large space or room so that players can move freely. The measurements provided for by the ITTF is an area not less than 14 m (46 ft) in length, 7 m (23 ft) in width and 5 m (16 ft) in height. The covering of the floor area should exceed by 1.5 m (5 ft) in the four corners.

This is why the table tennis table although essential to the game is actually only a portion of the playing field. For a player, the entire half of the court is his side for as long as the ball bounces on his side of the table it is his job to make a legal return even if the deflection takes you far away from the edge of the table.

Table Tennis can be played both indoors and outdoors. The more formal games are usually held indoors but as a recreation it is nice to play table tennis outdoors. Whenever you decide to play outdoors, bear in mind that the wind will be an important factor in the game especially since the table tennis ball is very light. Table tennis started as a recreational sport usually played after dinner time.

This is a perfect choice because when played for fun, table tennis does not need so much effort. During the earlier times, dinner tables or any big table inside the house were used as improvised table tennis tables. In contemporary times, the table tennis tables are now commercialized. In fact, there are various brands of table tennis tables, both for indoor and outdoor, available in the market.

Indoor table tennis tables and outdoor table tennis tables come in same measurements. There is really not much difference between an indoor table tennis table and outdoor table tennis table. It is good to purchase foldable outdoor table tennis tables though so that the area where table tennis table is located can be used if no one is playing. Folding outdoor table tennis tables are also suitable for people who like going to parks and spending quality time with family and friends there because that way the folding table tennis table will come in handy.

The bringing around of the folding outdoor table tennis table from one place to another may cause it to be destroyed so make sure that when you put it inside a transportation it is folded properly and that it can fit the area provided for. Come to think of it, you can also use an outdoor table tennis table as a picnic table good for a lot of people. Just bring along a nice table cloth to go along with your weekend theme.
