Table Choice

Outdoor tables for “permanent” installation (as opposed to weather proof, collapsible tables designed to be stored inside in adverse weather and when not in use) are either made of cast concrete or a composite. In general the concrete tables are significantly more expensive, for little extra benefit.


We propose the purchase of 2 composite top Cornilleau 510 pro tables. The composite top has a 10 year warranty and is supported on a steel frame which can be bolted to the play area if necessary (this would be done). The table is available with a blue playing surface and a permanent steel net. This is the most popular outdoor static table and is very popular with schools, colleges and holiday parks, demonstrating its durability. Crucially, the supporting frame is recessed, allowing wheelchair users full access to play.


Beyond the Basics

It is anticipated that the provision of outdoor table tennis tables will provide and encourage active participation at many levels. This is a highly social activity and is likely to attract both group participation and spectators. Therefore, beyond the basic provision of tables on concrete pads it is both desirable and logical to maximise and enhance the attraction of the overall facility in a variety of ways by including benches, litter bins cycle stands,and plantings (as a wind shield).
