Are your Tables ITTF Approved?
Outdoor Table Tennis Tables all fall outside the guidelines specified for ITTF approval and therefore no manufacturer can offer ITTF approved Outdoor Tables.

Do your Tables conform to EU Safety Regulations?
Yes. All the tables we sell go beyond the requirements of the EN 14468-1 European Safety Standard. This Standard is made up of 4 categories for different levels of play and each Table level is clearly shown at the top of each of our product pages. This is also a good way of comparing other tables from different manufactures.

How do I decide if I need an Indoor or Outdoor Table?
Indoor tables are not weather resistant but they provide an excellent bounce and are good value for money. However they must not be stored in damp conditions (such as a barn or garage) as exposure to moisture will cause the playing surface to crack. They will also warp if left outside in the sun for only a short period of time.

Outdoor tables are more shock resistant and can be safely stored outside all year making them more long lasting.

What are the main differences between the Cheaper and more Expensive tables?
In the range of Table Tennis Tables that we sell, as the tables get more expensive, the playing surface gets thicker (therefore giving a better bounce), the legs of the table get sturdier, the frames get heavier, the wheels get larger, the net and post sets have more adjustments and you have the choice of playing surface finishes with MAT Top on Outdoor tables and SKIL Top on Indoor Tables.

Can I compare your Tables against each other?
Yes you certainly can by looking at our comparison tables:

Do all your tables have the Playback Facility (Solo Practice)?
All the Rollaway Tables in the range of Table Tennis Tables we sell can be used as a Playback Facility (Solo Practice) Table - Simply just fold one half of the table which will then create a surface for you to play against.

Can I leave my Table outside all year round?
If you have one of the Outdoor tables from our range then the answer is yes. All outdoor tables are resistant to sun, rain, snow and frost and can be left safely outside without any risk of deterioration.

We do however recommend the use of a cover. The purpose of the cover is not to keep the table dry but to keep it clean so that it is always ready to play and for additional child safety. It will also extend the life of the table.

Can Disabled players use your Tables?
Any of the tables in our range that have the Compact Technology folding System are suitable for use by disabled players in wheelchairs as the leg assemblies in these tables have been designed to allow a wheelchair to get under the table.

Do you sell Tables specifically for Schools and other Recreational uses?
Yes we have in our range a number of Tables for both Indoors and Outdoors, for use in Schools, Clubs and other Institutions. Special attention has been given during the design and manufacture process to the materials used ensuring both Intensive use and sturdiness of the table.

Are your Tables difficult to assemble?
All the tables in this range that have the Compact Technology design have the entire security mechanism pre-assembled before delivery thus enabling a 30% reduction in the time taken to assembly your table. All instructions for assembly are very easy and clear to follow and if you require can be downloaded in advance from the relevant product page.

You should allow 45 - 60 minutes for 2 people to carry out the assembly of your table.

Tell me about your Assembly Service?
Not looking forward to assembling your Tennis Table and disposing of all the rubbish? Don't panic as we have the perfect answer. The delivery people will unpack your table and install it in the place you request. Then to finish the job they will remove all the packaging and dispose of for you - leaving you just to enjoy your new purchase.

How long are your Tables guaranteed for?
All the tables in our range have a 3 year warranty (2 years for the Tectonic Brand)
The playing surface panels on the Outdoor models come with a 10 year warranty ( 3 year for the Tectonic Brand) against Deformation, Delamination and disappearance of markings. This warranty is limited to the supply of parts as recognised as defective by Cornilleau.

How long does delivery of a Table take?
Most of the popular models are kept in stock and can be delivered in 10 working days from our Specialist delivery Warehouse. We use a specialist carrier so that the tables don't get damaged in transit.
