If you love to play ping pong but not intend to become a professional player, instead, you only want to play for your own leisure, then you can consider getting this GoSports Mid-Size Table Tennis Game Set.
It is an ideal midsize ping pong table for you to place in your room if you are having limited space and it is just not possible for you to place a full-size ping pong table.
What Will You Get Along With This Table
The table comes with a complete set of equipment that is needed for you to play the game. When you get this table, you will expect to receive a ping pong table with a size of 6′ x 3′. Other than the table, you will also receive a net set, 2 ping pong paddles, and 4 balls.
The table is built with a heavy-duty aluminum frame. The frame is of great quality which can keep the table firmly in place. Do remember don’t try to hit your paddle on the frame as it may get dent and bend.
The GoSports Mid-Size Table Tennis Table is built with thin plywood. The thin plywood may absorb a bit of the bounce of the ball. You will need to exert more effort to hit the ball.
The tabletop is painted red color. It is not a standard color for a ping pong table which normally available in green or blue color. The construction of the playing surface of the tabletop is very good. It is smooth for you to play ping pong and it can give you quite decent bounce.
You may get a little noise when the ball is in contact with the table surface. If you want to reduce the noise, you can try to install some foams beneath the table to reduce the noise.
Net, Paddles, and Balls
The provided net is decent and tight. When first setting up, the net may slide over the metal rods on each side. And I found that the net rods are too short so that it just can’t reach the height of 6 inches. If you are willing to spend a little money, you may try to get a retractable net.
The paddles and balls that you get are good enough for you to play the game but they are not of premium quality. If you just use them for casual play with your family during leisure time, then they can serve the purpose well.
However, if you wish to get a better spin and bounce when playing ping pong with this table, you will need to consider getting better quality paddles and balls. The table also comes with a zippered pouch that allows you to store the paddles and balls after playing the game.
