Table tennis tables in this price range, $500-$850 are going to have a thinner playing surface. The playing surface is actually a good representation of the quality of table you are going to receive and this table has a relatively thin (low) surface, however that is what you would expect from a table of this caliber and price.

The ¾” inch surface this table has is still decent, so don’t interpret this review in a negative fashion, the playing surface on this table is exactly what you should expect and want from a table of this price.

Assembly

Other great things about this table include the easy and quick assembly. With other Table tennis tables, especially rather cheap ones such as this, assembly can be a real pain.

We’re talking 3-5 hours of assembly due to frustrating instructions and missing parts. However, this table comes competition-ready with Quick-Play® Chassis technology, which means this table, arrives almost completely assembled, a few bolts and screw and you’re ready to go!

This Indoor Table tennis table also comes with 2” legs and 3” wheels. While the 2” legs are nothing to fret about the 3” wheels are generally 2”, so you get a little bit larger wheels in-case you might feel like taking your Table tennis table outdoors on a sunny afternoon.

This table is sturdy overall, it comes with 2" Powder-Coated Steel Apron with Patented Half-Length Ball Storage which means it naturally reduces rust as well as increases durability and strength. Not every Table tennis table has a ball storage, so this table really has a lot of the perks you wouldn’t expect in a cheaper Table tennis table such as this. Bringing the table out and in, such as closing and opening the table, is actually quite easy. The Quick-Play Chassis is also to the that advantage, causing the table to open and close relatively easy and quickly for quick play!

Conclusion:

This is a great table for those interested in something decent quality but cheap for the family. Just because this is a cheap ping ping table doesn't mean it's poor quality. Yes, relative to what is out there this a cheap table, but that doesn’t mean this table isn’t quality. Other than the JOOLA Inside, this table truly is one of the best inexpensive Indoor Table tennis tables on the market.
