You can even play outdoors!
Sports don’t get any more noble and pure than ping-pong. Once the preserve of Victorian after-dinner guests who’d bat champagne corks over the table with the lids of cigar boxes, it’s evolved into a fast-paced pursuit of glory and riches. Table tennis has made humble sportsmen into stars, and weaved dreams for countless Olympians. It’s also rather good fun for us lesser mortals too – which is why Joola have designed a version of the game you can bring home and lark about with on your kitchen table.
Unfolding from a briefcase-style package
is your arena: a super-smooth and sturdy ping-pong court that’s measures approximately ¼ of an official table. At 71cm long and 35.5cm wide
, it sits neatly atop any flat surface in your house or garden
, beckoning all comers to raise their racquets and serve. What’s more, at a chunky 10cm deep, it’s just as solid and sound as a proper competition table
– even though it weighs an ultra-portable 2.3kg!
Comes with 2 mini racquets!
Don’t be surprised at the awesome quality:
it’s built by Joola, the firm behind Olympic and professional tables
, so the action on this folding, portable version is as reliable as… well, as reliable as a backhand serve from 2007 World Table Tennis Champion Wang Liqin, if you must know. And that’s very reliable indeed.
Just place on any table and let the games begin!
It comes complete with retractable net, two balls and two bats
that are the ideal size to play with on this scaled-down sports showdown. The only thing this can’t guarantee you is the skills of players like Fred Perry – yep, the Fred Perry: World Singles Table Tennis Champion 1929. Who knows where this little sporting gem will take you?
