Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Where to buy table tennis tables

Where to buy?
For competition level tables, it's worth going through your local club or dealer. For the home, a competition level table is usually not worth it... as the location and surrounding are usually not ideal, and often restricted already...

Once you've decided what you want, buying online usually gets you a cheaper price, or at least as cheap, with often some specials or extras thrown in as well. The description and details of what's included can be studied from the convenience of your home, instead of trying to read it from the box in the store, or asking an un-informed sales person. When buying online the shipping is usually already organised and quoted, instead of trying to organise it in the store. With tables it's well worth getting it delivered, as the chance of getting it damaged are significant. It's worth getting the net and posts at the same time too, which is sometimes included already anyway.

When it come to bats, if you want anything decent, it's well worth buying this seperately. The stores that carry the recreational tables tend to only stock the recreational range of pre-made (factory assembled) bats, which are often more expensive and far inferior to a custom made bats, and can be bought for similar price.... see out article on pre-made vs custom-made bats. Our own online store (see link & button top right of screen) can advice you of something suitable.

In Australia, luckily some of the larger sports stores have started to carry some of the more decent recreational tables, that are a lot better than your standard department stores specials. Stores such as Rebel Sport (see link below), are now carrying the German made "Spirit Roller" which has a 16mm MDF surface (which should be perfectly adequate for most homes), is quite durable, can easily be put away with the roller, and comes with a net set included. They also carry the "Stiga Family outdoor", which is a far less common table that is robust enough and suitable to be used and kept outdoors. Stores like Rebel charge around AUD$50 to get a table delivered to your doorstep within days, well worth it considering the effort and risk when doing it yourself...
