This allows you to practice your ping pong skills when you have no one else to play with. It also takes up a lot less space when playing on only a half table, so you can even play indoors with this configuration.

Another brilliant use of the ping pong table is as extra individual tables for entertaining guests. Just make sure you drape a table cloth over your ping pong table so that it doesn’t get chipped or dirty.

Weather Proof

The undercarriage is 30 mm powder coated steel frame. This durable frame prevents the usual wear and tear from constant usage. It will also increase the lifespan of your ping pong table as the legs and wheels are very sturdy.

The reinforced undercarriage also provides more strength and support and allows the JOOLA ping pong table to withstand the wind and the rain. The surface of the ping pong table is covered by a 6 mm thick aluminium and plastic composite surface. This coating is waterproof, preventing the table top from being ruined in the rain.

It also serves to help prevent the table from warping in extreme temperatures. This is a really good bonus since a warped table results in uneven bounces of the ping pong ball.

With all these wonderful weatherproof features, the JOOLA table tennis table can be safely left outside without worry that it will become damaged.However, if you want to further increase the longevity of your ping pong table, it is possible to purchase a matching JOOLA cover which you can throw onto your ping pong table between uses.

Good Bounce For Beginners

The 6 mm thick aluminium plastic surface provides a decent amount of bounce for a casual game of ping pong. It is not the perfect bounce as required by tournament standards, but it is still bouncy enough such that it does not affect gameplay.

What We Don’t Like

Some of the reviewers are not that satisfied with all features of the JOOLA ping pong table, specially about this things.

Attaching The Net

Reviewers have complained that the attachments of the net to the tables could have been constructed better. The nets do not really connect the table halves very well and some reviewers have had issues keeping the net on.

The net does not reflect the good quality of the table itself and some reviewers were left slightly disappointed, however the majority of reviewers found this doesn’t negatively impact gameplay in any significant way.

Paint Comes Off

A couple of customers had issues with the paint coming off when giving the table a wipe.

As long as you follow good ping pong table cleaning practices, this should not happen! Make sure you use either a specified ping pong table cleaner or make your own using 2 cups water and 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar.

Buying Advice

Priced at around $449.99, the JOOLA Nova outdoor ping pong table is the best value for your money when it comes to purchasing reliable outdoor tables.
