Kettler Topstar XL Outdoor Table Tennis Table Review

UPDATE: The Kettler Topstar XL Outdoor Table is currently unavailable. We often check and when it is back in stock, we will update this post. Until then, check out our review of the Butterfly Compact Outdoor Table since it is similar and made by one of the sport’s top manufacturers. 

I would love to discuss and make a short review of the Kettler Topstar XL Outdoor Table Tennis Table.

I bought the table about 3 years ago, and we have used it quite often. We have a cover for it that we use to prevent it from getting moisture, when it is not being used for a long period. The table has held up quite well. Despite some scratch marks on the table, the overall table still functions very well.

My family uses it often with our neighbor for exercise and social gathering purpose. We have a good time playing with the table.

Take a look at the video to see all the features you can have with this table. It will give you some ideas of how the table looks like.


The whole assembles process can take about one hour for an experienced user. If you face any difficulty getting the job done, you can search for some videos online that show you how to assemble the table.

The Kettler Topstar XL Outdoor Table is not a very high-end table. Still, the quality is not bad compared to other branded tables like Butterfly. It can take you 3 to 4 hours for non-experienced users to set the table up.


The top of the table is built with quality aluminum material and water-based paint that is UV resistant.

If you place the table in the sun, you don’t have to worry about fading over time as it holds up well. You won’t notice any significant fade marks even during the rainy season.

One of the features of the table, it has an aluminum edge that goes around the table. The tabletop provides players with consistent and even bounce. 

Net and Post

The net stays on the table all the time. You do not need to do any assembly job. It has a little side adjustment where you can take it up higher or lower. There is also a latch for you to push in if you want to raise one side of the table or lower it down.

Single Playback Mode

You can play in single playback mode for training purposes. There are buttons that you can find on both sides of the table below the net.

DLS Dual Lock Safety Mechanism

When you push the button and latch you will hear a “click” sound. After that, you can fold one side of the table for solo play. The folding mechanism is not available for other tables.

Table Legs

The metal legs are made of steel. They are sturdy and provide really good support to the table.

The thickness of the legs is 2.5″ or 64mm, which is thick enough to support the entire table, and the elliptical can provide optimum stability to it.

Wheel Casters

There are large 5.5 inches or14cm dual-wheel casters available for this table.The wheel casters makes moving the table easy. Among the casters, two of them are integrated with the locking system.

The caster wheels help to move the table either on concrete, lawn, or grass floor surface with ease.


This table is easy to put together, and this will make you use it very often.

The table is quite durable.

The craftsmanship of the table is of great quality. 

The table is very easy to fold and unfold. You can lock the table using the locking mechanism, which makes it safe for you to move the table for storage.


One drawback is the table legs are not adjustable. If you want to move the table on an uneven floor surface, you will need first to raise the legs.

Other than that, the table comes with a manual that may take some time to figure out how to assemble. 


I have been playing ping pong with this table for a couple of months now, and so far, I am very happy with it. It is a sturdy table that I placed in the backyard and I have fun with my family using it.

It is not like the high-end ping pong tables with the legs raising features, but here we are talking about a table that only cost you around $800 compared to other high-end tablets that can cost you more than $1000.

It should be one of your favorite tables for this price range.
