Modern Table Tennis Tables

When you think of ping pong, you probably picture the well-known table style — a colorful matte top perched on thin metal legs with a flimsy net across the middle. Though this style is recognizable, it's also outdated. While a traditional ping pong table might fit right in at a retro arcade, chances are it doesn't match the contemporary design of your home.
 

Your home has a unique look, and you shouldn't have to sacrifice style for fun. If you want a truly classic table tennis table for your space, consider a modern ping pong table from HB Home. Our stylish tables are made with high-quality materials and feature elegant midcentury details that bring any room to the next level.

Table Tennis Maintenance

 

When you purchase a ping pong table, it's essential to know how to properly maintain it. A dusty or stained tabletop can impact gameplay by altering the bounce and spin of the ball or even damaging your paddles. However, when you take the right maintenance measures, you can ensure that your surface is clean, smooth and ready for play.

 

Be sure to follow these simple maintenance tips when you purchase your table tennis table:

 

  • Buy a table cover: Table covers are an effective solution for blocking out dust and debris. Look into water- and dust-resistant coverings to protect your surface from harmful contaminants that can settle on your table.

  • Clean the surface: You can ensure that your tabletop is free of dirt and stains by performing routine cleanings. All you have to do is remove the net and wipe the surface with a dry cloth to pull up loose dust. Then, saturate the cloth in warm water and ring out the excess liquid before gently swabbing the tabletop. Be sure to avoid abrasives and household cleaners that can corrode the finish.

  • Wash the net: To clean your net, soak it in a diluted vinegar solution of one part vinegar and five parts water. Be sure to place the fabric into the solution without immersing the metal supports. After letting it soak, remove the net from the mixture, rinse it with water and allow it to dry for 30 minutes.

 

Table Tennis Beginner Tips

 

If you're new to table tennis, there are many basic tips and tricks you can learn to improve your performance. With the right skills and knowledge, you can engage your friends and family in a fun and competitive tournament at your next get-together.

 

Learn how to play table tennis by following these three tips for beginners: 

 

  • Holding the paddle: The shakehand grip is the most commonly used grip in the United States. For this position, wrap your palm around the bat in a fist-like hold. Your index finger should rest across the bottom of the rubber surface while your thumb sits across the other side. Keep a loose grip on the paddle to avoid creating movement-limiting tension in your arm.

  • Serving the ball: You can only earn points in table tennis if you can successfully serve the ball. The goal is to allow the ball to bounce once on your side of the table before sending it over the net to touch your opponent's side. To accomplish this, toss the ball a short distance from the table for easy contact and swing your paddle while the ball is falling. 

  • Getting into position: Assume the ready position by standing slightly toward your nondominant hand's side of the table. Hold your paddle in front of you and make sure it's in line with the table's edge. Bend your knees slightly and keep your feet shoulder-width apart with the foot opposite your dominant hand facing forward.
