In an ideal world, we would all love a large games room packed with exciting, fun games for all the family to play. However, the majority of us simply don't have the space. Often the go-to product for a games room is a pool table, which is traditionally the most popular item. However, many people are unaware that you can transform your pool table into a first-class table tennis table with little effort and for a reasonable price.
We offer an excellent selection of indoor and outdoor table tennis conversion tops. These include free delivery and bats and balls. To view these items, please click HERE.
The tops we can offer are full-size. Table tennis tops are 9ft in length and 5ft in width. This means there is a slight overhang on most pool tables, which you require.
What tables are they compatible with?
The good news is that these tops will work with nearly all pool tables. UK slate bed tables are usually either 6ft x 3'7 or 7ft x 4ft. The tops will fit on both these tables, but you will have an overhang on each end and the sides. On a 7ft UK pool table, you will have a 1-foot overhang at the ends and 6 inches on each side. The side overhang is required to attach the net and post set.
They are also compatible with American-style tables that are either 7ft or 8ft models. They do not work on 9ft American tables. This is because the net and post set cannot clip onto the 9ft models at the side.
Table tennis tops work well on pool tables, and the game provided is very enjoyable. The tops are in two pieces due to the size and weight. They need to be handled by two people as they are bulky. The only downside is storing the tops when they are not in use.
We can offer both indoor and outdoor table tennis conversion tops. The outdoor version can be left outside in all weather and is perfect for your outdoor pool table or sturdy garden table. Below are two videos showing the indoor and outdoor tops being set up.
