Best JOOLA Ping Pong Tables for Indoors

JOOLA Inside 25

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 25mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 4 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 108kg / 239lbs

Pros:

  • Thick table top
  • Exceptional value for money
  • Strong build quality
  • Quick setup
  • Compact storage

Cons:

  • Not suitable for outdoor use

The JOOLA Inside is one of the best value-for-money tables on the market. A great quality of the Inside range is that you can choose your desired table top thickness. We have selected 25mm as this is the thickest and, therefore, the best quality. You’ll struggle to find a better table for a cheaper price anywhere else. However, if you want to save a little money and go for a cheaper model, feel free to do so. The Inside also has 18mm, 15mm, and 13mm thick versions. If you’re serious about table tennis, we recommend going no lower than 18mm.

JOOLA Rally TL 700

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 25mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 3 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 108kg / 239lbs

Pros:

  • Thick table top
  • Exceptional value for money
  • Strong build quality
  • Quick setup
  • Compact storage
  • Ball holders & abacus scorers

Cons:

  • Not suitable for outdoor use

The JOOLA Rally TL 700 is another one of our favorites from JOOLA. In all honestly, it is not that much different from the Inside 25. They share a 25mm play surface (plus thinner table options) and a near-identical undercarriage. Noteworthy differences include slightly smaller aprons at 1.5 inches, balls holders in the table corners, and abacus scorers.

Given their similarities, our preference mostly comes down to price, and as it stands, the Inside is a bit cheaper, so that’s our favored pick of the two.

JOOLA Tour 2500

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 25mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 4 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 112kg / 248lbs

Pros:

  • Thick table top
  • Good value for money
  • Strong build quality
  • Quick setup
  • Compact storage

Cons:

  • Not suitable for outdoor use

Another table by JOOLA we really rate is the Tour 2500. Once again, its form is very similar to the JOOLA Inside and JOOLA Rally TL. It shares most of its features with the Inside, having 4-inch locking casters and 2-inch steel tube aprons. Yet there is nothing to suggest that it is a superior table. Despite this fact, as of the time of writing it costs over 35% more. So in our eyes, the Inside is clearly a better purchase, but if prices change in the future, it may well be worth considering.

Best JOOLA Outdoor Table Tennis Tables

JOOLA Rally Outdoor

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 6mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 3 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 61kg / 134lbs

Pros:

  • Play outdoors or indoors
  • Easy to set up
  • Leg levelers
  • Outdoor net included

Cons:

  • Thin tabletop

The Rally JOOLA outdoor ping pong table is an inexpensive model with a 6mm table top. This tabletop is constructed from an aluminum-plastic composite giving it resistance to chipping and warping.

Included with the table is a weatherproof libre outdoor net. This isn’t some cheap old net that will fall apart. It’s a quality clip net that features height and tension adjustment.

The legs of the table feature levelers. This gives you the ability to adjust your table to account for uneven flooring — a quality that is borderline essential for outdoor tables. The heavy-duty 3-inch wheels also make the table easy to wheel around.

JOOLA Nova Pro Plus Outdoor

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 6mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 6 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 78kg / 173lbs

Pros:

  • Play indoors or outdoors
  • Very affordable price
  • Highly maneuverable
  • Leg levelers
  • Outdoor net included

Cons:

  • Thin table top

The JOOLA NOVA Pro Plus is the king of mobility. Sitting on 6″ wheels, it handles all terrain with minimal difficulty, making it the perfect choice for people who want to store their tables away from where they will use them. As for the playing surface, the Nova Pro Plus features a 6mm thick aluminum-plastic composite top, so it is essentially the same as the JOOLA Rally Outdoor in this regard.

This JOOLA outdoor table tennis table also comes with a weatherproof net, but it is not quite as good as the Rally Outdoor’s. It’s a clamp-style net that features tension adjustment. However, there is no option to adjust the height.

JOOLA NOVA DX Outdoor

Features of the Table:

  • Table top thickness: 6mm
  • Table dimensions: 108 x 60 x 30 inches
  • Wheels: 3 inches
  • Solo playback mode: Yes
  • Leg levelers: Yes
  • Weight: 65kg / 143lbs

Pros:

  • Play indoors or outdoors
  • Very affordable price
  • Leg levelers
  • Outdoor net included

Cons:

  • Thin table top

The NOVA DX is another JOOLA ping pong table for outdoors. it is very similar to the Rally Outdoor, so much so that we are struggling to identify any noteworthy differences. The only two differences we could find between the tables are very minor. The first is the appearance. The NOVA DX has a silver and blue finish on the frame and net, whereas the Rally Outdoor has a grey and green finish.

Then there is the weight difference, the NOVA DX weighs 9lbs more. Clearly, this is of little consequence.  Given both tables are priced the same, we recommend choosing based on appearance if you are stuck between the two.

Conclusion

JOOLA ping pong tables are among the best you can buy. What stands out to us is the range of tables they offer and the sheer value of some of their most popular models. To us, the best JOOLA table tennis table for indoors is the Inside 25. The reason we like it the best is its value. The Rally TL 700 and Tour 2500 are close in terms of quality, but the Inside 25 comfortably wins on the price front.

As for our favorite outdoor table that goes to the JOOLA NOVA Pro Plus Outdoor. Price similarly comes into play here too. All three of the outdoor models we covered cost within $20 of each other, yet the NOVA Pro Plus has double the wheel size of the other models. We feel this is reason enough to give it our top spot.

Hopefully, one of these tables tickled your fancy. If not, check our favorite tables across all brands.

  1. Thanks for pointing out that when choosing an outdoor table tennis table you should take time to consider different options. It would be really helpful to think of it as a long term investment and buy quality items, so thanks for that tip. I would imagine that it would be good to find a place that sells a variety of tables so you can look at multiple options.
