Table tennis, also known as ping-pong, is a game in which two or four players use small solid rackets to smash a lightweight ball, also known as the ping-pong ball, back and forth across a table. When a player fails to return the ball within the regulations, a point is awarded.

Table tennis tables are usually divided into indoor and outdoor varieties. Outdoor tables are usually made of materials that will not deform or fade. A waterproof surface is important if the table is going to be stored outside and not stored in a shed or garage when not in use. 

On bright days, you can use your joola indoor table tennis table outside, just bring it back inside and don't leave it out in the rain or direct sunshine for too long.

Mini tennis tables are also available in various sizes. They can be great for kids learning the sport because the angle of the table can be adjusted so that the center (where the net is placed) is lower than the two ends.

Mini table tennis tables are also available in new counter sizes and even inflatable tables with hard or springy surfaces. The best tables have wooden surfaces with a thickness of around 25-28mm and serious gamers should look for a thick table.

If you are serious about improving your skills then a full-size table tennis table is the best option for you.
