Designed with two separate halves.
November 2, 2016
It is a nice table that plays well. Assembly was easy as advertised by other customers. The main drawback is how the table folds for storage. The two halves of the table are not connected; what connect then is the net. It means several things:
- when playing on uneven ground (this is an outdoor table, and we will use it mostly in the yard), it is a struggle to find a position where the two halves align perfectly so you can tighten the net
- There is a lot of strain on the table at the connection due to the net (again, when it is on uneven ground, which will be always). I don't know how the table will hold to this. Also, how will it hold to kids jumping on the table for short balls.
- Storage is complicated. You need to unscrew both sides of the net to separate the halves. For setup from folded position, it's even more difficult: you have to find even ground, then screw and tighten the net.
- So so far we've never folded it. It's an outdoor table, but it would be probably better off folded. The design may thus affect product life.
All in all we're happy with it, it's a new table. Let's see if my fears materialize :-). But I thought it would be worthwhile sharing this description of the design to customers.
