Foldable ping pong table: How to choose?
Between sporting goods and gadgets, a foldable ping pong table is for anyone who wants to play spontaneously, any time of the day and anywhere.
They are available in various sizes smaller than the classic ping pong tables. Generally a Foldable ping pong table is only 60 cm long and around 30 cm wide. Few of the references exceed 150 cm in length.
Suffice to say that these are ultra-compact models. The weight is generally between 4 and 20 kilograms. Some references only consist of a tray where others have small folding legs (between 13 and 76 cm most often), or sometimes even adjustable to several heights.
Characteristics to take into account.
In addition to the dimensions and weight of the model, you will need to look at:
They generally carry the minimum necessary to play directly (net, rackets, balls).
Sometimes there are specific spaces for storing all the accessories attached to the table.
Even compact, a small tray remains more advantageous for transport when it is possible to fold it.
If a few references have it, be aware that some variations can turn into a suitcase.
Type of coating, material, impact-resistant finish, weather protection can be a bonus.
