Foosball Table Sizes, Dimensions, Weight And All You Need to Know!

Foosball Table Size, Dimensions and Weight and Height: The Ultimate Guide

The average dimensions of a foosball table are 56(L) x 28.75(W) x 34.5(H) inches.The tableweighs about 360 pounds.

This is the ‘standard’ size of a regulation foosball table.

However, there are 3 common table sizes, which we will talk about later in this post.

In this post we cover:

  1. How to measure your gaming room before deciding on a foosball table
  2. The common sizes & dimensions of foosball tables
  3. How to prepare your room for the ultimate foosball experience
  4. The bottom line

Quick tip:we recently reviewed the best foosball tables, read this post before you buy a foosball table, it will save you a lot of time and money.


Before buying a foosball table, you need to know the size of your gaming room.

The best way to measure your rooms size will be with a measure tape of course, you want to get the width and length of the room, and don’t forgot to measure how tall the ceiling is.

The reason you need to get the ceiling height by the way, is in case you will have some tall friends over. You generally want the gaming room to be spacious and fun to play in.

In terms of the rooms flooring – make sure its not a gentle ceramic tile type flooring, from our experience, the table might chip and scratch the floor when you bring it in.

Another smart thing to do will be to plan how are you going to get the table to the room, if you have a wide door you’re fine, otherwise you might want to get professional movers that will help you out.

Remember, a standard foosball table can weigh 360-370 pounds, its heavy and you won’t be able to lift it yourself.

later in this post, we will give you some cool tips on how to create a better foosball gaming room.

But now, lets go over the foosball table size and dimensions.


Make sure you check the dimensions of the specific foosball table you have bought, as they come in different sizes.

The three most common foosball tables sizes are :

  • 56” Foosball tables (56 inches long)
  • 52” Foosball tables (52 inches long)
  • 48” Foosball tables (48 inches long)

There are even smaller foosball tables that come at 40 inches in length, they are great for small children but not recommended for adults.

The regulation size foosball table is the 56 inches one, but unless you’re a pro, it shouldn’t really matter.

As a rule of thumb, the longer the table is, the more expensive it is, so keep your budget in mind.


Other than measuring the room, you want to get a few things ready before you bring in your new foosball table.

First, clean the room and make sure theres nothing in the way.

Then, you want to look for objects that might interrupt the foosball game, and get rid of them. You dont want the foosball players to trip over random objects thrown around the room.

Remember to leave some extra space for the people that will walk in and out of the room and play the foosball table.

Another smart thing to do is to keep some drinks & snacks in the room, for a better gaming experience.

You also want to print the rules of foosball and have them in the foosball room, sounds funny, but it might help new players understand the game better.

You can even get yourself a good audio system with speakers so you’ll have music playing in the background. These small things make the foosball game so much more fun!


There are other factors you should consider when picking out a foosball table size, other than the size of your room.

If you’re buying a foosball table for your kids, you want to stick to the smaller ones, maybe even the 40” foosball tables.

That will make sure they can actually reach the handles, and the smaller foosball tables are also slightly cheaper, so your heart won’t break when your table will. haha.

For adults and teens, we highly recommend to spend a little more and buy the 56” standard size foosball table.

It will provide a better foosball gaming experience and you’ll enjoy it so much you will forget about the price pretty quick.

If you’re buying a foosball table for your bar / office, we would also recommend the 56” one, but make sure you’re buying a sturdy one that will last.

Especially in bars / pubs, people tend to not really care about your table and it will get ruined fast if you buy a cheaply made one.

Generally, the 52” seems redundant to us, unless your room is too small for the 56” table. In that case, it will make sense. Otherwise, just invest a few more bucks and get the standard size one.

Remember, the bigger the table, the more playing surface you will have, the ‘harder’ it will be to score and the longer the foosball games will last.

A bigger foosball table will also require better foosball skills, of course.

Whichever size you choose, remember to make sure the table is built with quality materials unless you’re planning to buy a new table every few months.

Now that we got that covered, lets wrap this up with the bottom line.

How to Choose The Perfect Pool Table Size For Your Space?

Pool Table Sizes – The Complete Guide

A standard regulation size pool table is 4.5′ X 9′, however, pool tables come in different sizes. It is important that you buy one that fits the size of your gaming room.

When it comes to buying the right pool table size there are too many things that can go wrong if you don’t know what you’re doing.

But don’t get overwhlemed, thats why we wrote this post.



Quick Tip: looking to buy the best pool table for the money? read this post!


There are three common sizes for pool tables, these are:

  • 7 foot pool tables
  • 8 foot pool tables
  • 9 foot pool tables (standard regulation size)

In the chart below, you will find the standard pool table sizes & dimensions and the required gaming room size you’ll need in order to have the best pool experience.

pool table sizes and room dimensions explained

If the room is too small, consider getting a smaller pool table, don’t try to squeeze in a bigger pool table into a small space.

Even if it will fit, remember you need to leave a place for players to actually move around and hit the balls with their pool cues.

Also, remember that its better to have a bigger room with a smaller table, Vs. a smaller room with a bigger table.

Seems obvious, we know, but people tend to forget that when buying their billiard tables.


In order to make sure you have enough room in your gaming room for your new pool table, you will need to measure it first.

You want to get a tape measure, and simply measure the gaming rooms width and length.

Then, in order to get the rooms square footage, follow the simple equation.

Rooms Length X Rooms Width = Rooms Size in SQFT

For those of you who, like some of our staff members(they know who they are, haha) struggle with simple math, use a calculator.

All jokes aside, its important that you get an accurate measurement of the room, so you won’t have to deal with squeezing the wrong pool table into too small of a space.


Other than the space, there are some elements needed in a gaming room, that will improve your pool/billiard experience.

First, you want to make sure the room has enough light in it.

When playing pool, you will need to shot accurately and see the entire surface of the table and the balls.

If the room is too dark, it will be harder for players to enjoy the game and their eyes will get tired as well.

Second, ideally, you don’t want anything in the vacancy of the table.

Pool requires focus and most pool players won’t look around when they’re focused on their next hit.

If there are any objects on the floors, or the floor isn’t leveled, players might fall and harm themselves.

Third, make sure there is access to every point of the table.

Did you ever play pool when theres suddenly a sofa preventing you from extending the pool cue for your next shot? its very annoying and can ruin the entire game.

The easiest way to prevent that is to grab a pool stick, and see that you have enough room to hit the a ball from every angle.


Make sure you purchase a good cue rack, we recommend “Cue rack Only by Izzy Billiard” (link) that way you will have the pool tables accessories organized in one place.

You also want to make sure theres a good AC in the room, pool might not be as intense as boxing, but it is a sport and you will get hot when playing.

Having some music playing in the background is always fun, consider getting a good audio system for the gaming room.

Another great idea for an ideal pool room – keep a mini bar in the room with some soda or water for the players to enjoy when they get tired or want to take a brief break, maybe even some snacks.


pool table and balls


There are different reasons you want to consider when choosing the size of your new pool table.

If the main players will be kids, you want to go with a smaller, 3.5′ X 7′ pool table.That will be easier for them to play and reach different spots on the table.

For adult pool players, we highly recommend getting the standard 4.5′ X 9′ pool table. This table will provide the best gaming experience for you and your buddies.

Some people buy a pool table as a decorative piece and do not intend to play it which is completely fine.

In that case we do recommend the 4 ‘ X 8 ‘ table. It still looks luxurious but will take less space than the standard regulation-size table.


Pool tables usually weight between 650 pounds – 900 pounds [thats 300-400 Kilograms] that depends on the size of the table and the materials it was built with.

You want to prepare beforehand if you’re buying a pool table when delivery is not included.

You won’t be able to lift that table by yourself or even with a friend, or at least most people won’t.

Consider calling local pool table movers, that will save your back for sure. They will do a better job and you wont risk an injury or even worse, hitting your new table (we’re kidding).


We hope this post helped you choose the ideal pool table size for your gaming room.

You definitely want to take these extra few steps and make sure you’re buying the right table Vs. making a rush decision and buying the wrong one.

How to Clean An Air Hockey Table in 7 Easy Steps!

How to Clean Your Air Hockey Table Fast & Efficiently 

Air hockey tables can take a long time to clean if you don’t know what you’re doing. You can even ruin your table if you use the wrong cleaning materials, so we’ve decided to help out with the cleaning and wrote this post.

There are also things you need to know before cleaning the table like which materials are forbidden and which are recommended, so you won’t damage the air hockey table.

Wether you own an air hockey table or cleaning it for someone who does, this post will help you do it the right way.

In Todays Post We Cover: 

  1. Why Cleaning an Air Hockey Table is Crucial (yes, really)
  2. The Materials You will Need
  3. How to Clean an Air Hockey Table in 7 easy steps
  4. How to keep your table clean and take good care of it

Ready to do some cleaning? lets do this!


Well, besides the obvious reasons of getting rid of germs, dust and being a civilized human being (lol) theres another good reason to clean your air hockey table often.

That reason is failing to clean will actually cost you your hard earned money, because hockey tables can very easily get ruined.

Dust and dirt can ruin the surface of your hockey table and create malfunctions. Unlike pool tables or ping pong tables, air hockey tables have tiny holes on them where the air comes out of. If they get clogged, your air hockey table can become useless pretty fast.

So make sure you at least dry-clean your table often, wipe off dust and buy an air hockey table cover like this one, to prevent dirt from accumulating on it.



  • 2 dry cloths / towels
  • Disinfecting wipes
  • Vacuum cleaner (or a regular vacuum cleaner)
  • Toothpicks or Qtips

Having these will make cleaning process faster and easier.

You can get all of these materials at Walmart, target, or even Amazon.

Now lets talk about the actual steps.


Ready to clean your table? awesome!

First, make sure you have all the cleaning materials we specified above, so you won’t have to stop and look for them during the cleaning process.

Next, turn on some fun music and follow these steps.

The 7 Easy Steps to a Super Clean Hockey Table :

STEP 1: Turn on the fans to make sure you wont clog the air holes on the table. If you have fans / ac in the room make sure they are turned on, open the windows to let all the dust and dirt out.

STEP 2: Start by cleaning the frame and sides of the table with a wet cloth then a dry cloth. Do NOT start by cleaning the surface of the air hockey table (that way you wont have to repeat and clean it again after the dust from the sides of the table got to the surface).

STEP 3: Grab a vacuum cleaner, we use the black & decker cordless hand vacuum (get it from amazon by clicking here).

*If you’re going to use a heavy vacuum cleaner do not place it on the table, just use the hose and preferably hold it above the surface of the air hockey table to suck the dirt & dust out.

STEP 4: Use a very slightly wet cloth / wipe to wipe the surface of the table, make sure its not too wet. We highly recommend the lysol disinfecting wipes (click to buy from amazon) or any other wipe that is anti-bacterial and will disinfect the surface as well as clean it.

STEP 5: grab a dry cloth and wipe the surface dry. Make sure its completely dry and theres no liquid left especially on the surface of the table. This part is crucial, liquids can ruin the surface of the table.

STEP 6: clean the holes on the surface of the air hockey table using toothpick or qtips, make sure they’re completely clean and theres not even a bit of dust in them.

STEP 7:  You’re done! Grab a drink and pat yourself on the shoulder for doing an awesome job!

We recommend printing the 7 steps and having them near the table for easy access!

Here are some other tips and things you should remember when cleaning.



Good job! now your air hockey table is clean and ready!

We highly recommend that you wipe off dust everytime you play and use the table so you won’t have to clean so often. We do recommend to ‘deep clean’ with the steps above at least once a week.

Now that we know how to thoroughly clean the table and went over the steps, lets talk about how you will keep your table clean.


Unless you want to clean your table daily, you better take some steps to prevent dirt and dust from accumulating on it in the first place.

Doing that will also make sure your table will last longer and again, save you money.

  • Buy an air hockey table cover (we recommend this one)
  • Clean the room where the air hockey table is placed
  • Make sure you wash your hands before (and after, for your health) playing the air hockey table
  • Avoid placing drinks & foods on or near the air hockey table
  • Wipe off dust after each game to prevent it from accumulating
  • If you have kids that play with the air hockey table, educate them about these steps too


Air hockey is an awesome game, and you can’t possibly play without a good working table. Thats why taking good care of your air hockey table is important.

You don’t want to neglect your air hockey table, they come with a hefty price tag and fixing them isn’t cheap.

Taking a few extra steps can save you a ton of headaches, so don’t be lazy!

We hope this post helped you clean your table more efficiently and quickly.

1.What to Look for in a Ping Pong Table for The Outdoors

Before we dive into the reviews, we wanted you to know what we looked at. There are some features that are critical when choosing a table for the outdoors, lets go over them.


First, you need to consider the space you have. The worst thing you can do is buy a ping pong table thats too big and placing it in a small space.

Doing that will ruin the entire experience, and you won’t be able to enjoy your game. We recommend that you grab a meter, measure the space you’re going to place the table at, and buy accordingly.

Don’t skip this step – it will save you a ton of money (and frustration).


When it comes to the price, you will have to consider your budget of course.

When trying to figure out the quality of the table you should buy (usually higher quality ping pong tables, will be a little more expensive) ask yourself these questions:

Are you buying the table for your own house?

How often are you going to play the table?

How important is the quality of the table to you?

Would you rather spend a little more and get a high quality table, or will a cheaper one be suffice as you will barely use it anyway?

Basically, the more you spend on a ping pong table, the higher quality it will be. So beware of your budget, but think about the questions above too.

ping pong outdoors


This is one of the most critical features of an outdoors ping pong table. You want the table to be built out of a strong material, like aluminum / stainless steel frame, and consider a weather-proof net.

That way, the rain and sun will have little effect on damaging the table. Also, we highly recommend you buy a high quality table cover like this one, just as an extra protection. Investing a few bucks in a ping-pong table cover, can save you hundreds on a new table.

You also want a table with an aluminum table-top, that is able to resist rust, water, and even sun-damage.

Beautifully designed, it even comes with small ball storage pockets at the side of the table, for easy access and better ping-pong experience!

10 Best Air Hockey Tables: Ultimate Buyers Guide!


An air hockey table can be fun for people of all ages, and there are many of them to choose from. If you are interested in buying one of these tables, you will need to know what to look for and what your options are. It is the perfect solution for those who like the idea of playing hockey but don’t want to lose any teeth.

In a Hurry? Here’s Our Top Picks:





Before we dive deeper into our top picks, lets talk about what you should look for when buying a quality air hockey table.

What to Look for in a Good Air Hockey Table

There are some key things to look for in a quality air hockey table, and it’s important you know what they are before shopping around.


You will quickly find that air hockey tables come in a wide range of sizes. You will need to know how much space you have for one of these tables. Take the time to measure the area you plan on putting the table so you don’t accidentally get one that doesn’t fit.

Air hockey tables can be 3 or 4 feet to 8 feet long and 4 feet wide. It is recommended that you leave at least 34” of space on either side of the table. You want to be able to play comfortably and move around without being inhibited.


You get what you pay for with air hockey tables, so you need to keep that in mind. The cheaper tables cost around $100, while the high-end models can reach up to $1,000. You don’t have to get the most expensive table on the market, but you shouldn’t go too cheap either.

The more expensive tables tend to be well-made and last longer. Make sure that you decide how much you can afford to spend before you start looking at your options. If you want an air hockey table that will really last, you’ll need to spend at least a few hundred dollars.

Types of Air Hockey Tables

There are numerous types of air hockey tables, and you’ll want to learn about each one.

  • Arcade-Style: These are by far the most expensive air hockey tables, but they are also the most solid and well-made. A standard arcade table is about 8 feet long and features music as well as sound and lighting effects. You can also expect to get electronic scoring.
  • Basic models: The more basic air hockey table models don’t have any of the fancy bells and whistles that the higher-end models do. These tables are best for children and very casual players.
  • Tabletop: There are also tabletop air hockey tables, which can be easily stored when they are not being used. These tables are best for areas where there isn’t a lot of space. Tabletop tables often have rubber feet that stand on tables.
  • Multigame: Some air hockey tables offer numerous games, including shuffleboard, table tennis and foosball. These tables tend to be more expensive, but you will get a lot more use out of them.

Skill Level

You will also need to consider your skill level when deciding which air hockey table to purchase. Advanced players will need to look for a solid, full-size table that has rink walls. The table you get must also have precise deflection.

Intermediate players will want to look for a table that is at least 7’ long. You can get a table that is bigger with fewer extras, or a smaller one with some bells and whistles. It all depends on what your budget is like.

Beginners definitely don’t need a big expensive table. It is important to keep in mind that beginner tables aren’t particularly sturdy or well-made. These tables tend to warp easily and move around a lot. Once you have honed your skills, you can get a better table.


The motor that your air hockey table uses will be something else to consider. You want a table that offers an even flow output. It should be able to operate for an extended period of time while running quietly. The best air hockey tables feature a Plenum chamber.


You should look for an air hockey table with a solid overall construction with joints that are kept in place with sturdy screws. Make sure that you get a table with levelers so that you won’t have to deal with any wobbling.

The rink walls of the table you get should be made of solid aluminum or durable nylon for good deflection. If you are a beginner, you can probably settle for laminate aluminum rink walls. This just depends on your skill level.

Manual Slide Scoring System Vs. Electronic Scoring System

How would you prefer to track the score? there are 2 options.

Some air hockey tables use a manual score tracking while others use a digital one.

Digital scoring is nice because you won’t have to worry about keeping track of the score throughout each game.

21 Foosball Tricks & Tips That’ll Help You CRUSH Opponents!

21 Foosball Tricks & Tips That’ll Make You A Foosball Master!

Love playing foosball? hi, we get it! We’re absolutely addicted to foosball, its one of the best games ever made by man, in fact just writing these lines makes us want to drop our mac and go play some foosball.

But don’t worry, we won’t do that, because we have to help you improve your foosball gaming skills.

We’re about to give you awesome 21 foosball tips and tricks that’ll make you a MASTER in the game of foosball.

QUICK TIP: First, if you haven’t read, read our post about the rules of foosball. 

Wether you love playing foosball in your office at work, with buddies at home, or even professionally, we’re confident that this post will help you improve your skills.

Remeber, knowledge is NOT power, its power in potential. Meaning, if you won’t actually practice these tips and take some action, just ‘knowing’ them will do nothing for you.

So make sure you read this post a few times if you’re serious at getting better at the game of football table (foosball sounds so much better…)



This is the worst mistakes newbie foosball players make. They are too predictable. Be creative, and your opponent will never see it coming. See a clear path? kick with your goalie all the way to your opponents goal, you’ll be surprised on how many easy scores you’ll get that way.


remember, your opponent has 15 seconds to do his move. You want to be constantly moving your players, don’t stop. Look at the players hes moving and react accordingly.


If you’re anything like us, you dont like losing. That being said, if you were a new soccer player and you had the chance to play and learn from Christiano Ronaldo, would you do it? of course you would!

Well, same applies to foosball. You might get frustrated losing to a foosball pro, but you’ll learn so much and improve your skills fast!


Another common mistake is beginners make, is having a very tight, hold grip on the foosball tables handles. Don’t do that.

You will want to keep a pretty loose grip on the handle, the reason is youll be able to shoot and spin the handle faster that way.

You will also be able to move your hands between handles faster, but if your hands are “stuck” on the handle, it will take you an extra second to loosen the grip, which can cost you the game!


Want to be a pro foosball player that beats everyone, everywhere? You must do some arm exercise preferably with weights.

Work on your forearm, wrist, biceps and shoulders and you will be able to spin the handles faster, and even play foosball for a longer time, which will make you a strong and in-shape foosball player!


When performing a ‘open handed shot’ in foosball, the speed of the shot will increase dramatically.

To shoot a “open handed shot” simply spin the handle on the wrist.

It won’t be as accurate as if you would close your hand and grip harder on the handle, but it will be extremely fast.


Just dropping the ball into the hole is a terrible foosball mistake! You’re basically giving your opponent a free possession, where he or she can score easily. Why would you do that?!

Learn to spin the ball and control the angle when serving the ball. It will take you time to master, so you’ll need to practice your serving technique.

Once you master this, you will increase your winning odds significantly, so don’t underestimate the serve.


Stay focused, we cant stress this enough. Many players get over-whelmed as theres a lot going on in a foosball game. However, you must stay focused if you want to win.

Keep your eyes on the ball and glance to your opponents hands from time to time, that’ll help you better focus on the game progress, plan your next shots, and predict your opponents next move.

foosball winning tips


This tip is powerful, so read carefully. Learn to move two of your defense handles (rods) together, as a small defense unit. That will make it extremely hard on your opponent to score.

Make sure your players don’t over-lap, spread them out with small gaps between them, and you’ll have the defense of a premier league soccer team.


Did you know that your goal has the width of 5 foosball balls? well, you do now.

Understanding that will help you cover your goal efficiently, and you won’t have to spend extra man-power covering the entire goal, you just dont need to do that.

You want to spread your defense players, so they defend 50% of each hole, and not the entire hole. Meaning, X player defends 50% of hole 1, and 50% of hole number 2, that way, if your opponent will shoot to hole 1 or 2, he won’t be able to score! 

Look at the figure below to better understand this tactic 

foosball tips - goal
Cover 50% of each hole. You don’t need to cover the entire hole, that way, 1 player defends two positions.


Have you ever got a ricochet goal? they suck! Especially because avoiding them is extremely easy.

Heres what you want to do: simply tilt your defense players backwards whenever you notice a shot is going to hit a wall that is close to your goal.

By doing this simple technique, the ricochet ball won’t cost you a point!


Again, when playing with many beginners we noticed they forget to play defense. In foosball, we would say you want to focus 70% on defense and 30% on offense.

Having a good defense will prevent most of your opponents goals, and will be so much easier on you to score.

So focus on blocking easy shots from your opponents, and then use the blocks to your advantage and go on the offense. But never forget to play defense!

Also, make sure your eyes are on the ball and your defensive players are always on the move, like we suggested in the tips before.


If You’re playing one on one, try mastering this technique as it can be a game changer!

Try using your pinkie and thumb on your left hand to play with your entire defense unit (meaning your 2 defense handles).

It wont be easy to master at first, but when you get used to it, you literally become a foosball behemoth.


You will be surprised at how many players forget to breath during a foosball game, and then they faint and die!

Ok, we lied, you won’t faint and die but you definitely want to pace your breathing during an intense foosball game, so your body will able to function and you won’t run out of breath, letting your opponent beat you with ease.


Usually, the obvious play is usually the worst possible play. Because your opponent will be able to predict it, and prepare his players to react!

When you become creative, and play with the right mindset, youll take advantage of situations and score easy goals.

Dont be afraid to mix things up, and bounce the ball off of the walls in order to score. Try scoring when your opponent less expects it.


Don’t get into this “circle of stupidity” of you hitting the ball, your opponent blocks it, you try the same exact shot again, and guess what? you get blocked again.

Consistency is important, but doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, was defined by the great Albert Einstein as ‘insanity‘.

If you know your opponent is good at blocking a specific type of shot, why not try a different angle or shot instead ?


This one seems pretty obvious but we wanted you to remember that. The more you play, the better you will get at foosball.

In fact, if you haven’t yet, we highly recommend getting a foosball table for your own house to practice on. We recently picked the 10 best foosball tables ever –  click to read the post. 


When you rotate your wrist while holding the handle, make sure you rotate fast and make a 180 degrees movement.

Dont get lazy and make the entire movement that way the ball will gain more speed and momentum when your players hit it.


Scored a goal? shout “YES!!!!” or “GOOOALLL” or whatever you want to shout, but do celebrate.

Wonder why? 1. its fun and will boost your moral. and the second reason – it will discourage your opponent and get him out of his game even further, which will increase the odds of you winning. And you like winning, don’t you? 🙂


You have to lubricate your rod with some oil so everything will go smooth and fast.

Another great tip is to slide the rubber bumpers along the rod and to the end of it, to clean the residue and dust build-up, that will help the rod slide better.


Foosball is a very exciting fun game, don’t forget that!

While winning is important for your confidence, and finances if you play professionally, if you stop enjoying the game you won’t play with enthusiasm and lose anyway.



We hope this post helped you learn some new techniques, and improved your understanding of the amazing game of foosball.

Foosball is an extremely fun and exciting game, and its usually played at home with friends and family.

That being said, being a better foosball player will enhance your gaming experience and to be honest, nobody likes to lose!

None the less, there are professional foosball tournaments, where you can compete for serious money. To see the entire tournament list, click here to go to the official IFP website.

Some of our readers told us they play foosball for money and bet with their friends, so this post can literally make you money if you do that.

We said it before and we will repeat it again, don’t forget to enjoy yourself. If you’re not having fun (unless your a pro playing for money) than your missing the point.

We’re trying to grow and we write our content to help folks out, we hope you appreciate that!

How to Clean a Ping Pong Table : in 9 Super Easy Steps!

Clean Your Ping Pong Table in Just 9 Super Easy Steps

We love ping pong tables! Except when its time to clean them. Thats why we thought you would appreciate a simple strategy that’ll help you clean your table in no-time!

To clean your ping pong table all you need is to do is unscrew the net, take off everything, and then wet & dry wipe it with some (bleach-free) cleanser. We will expand on that in this post and teach you a easy & efficient process.

Cleaning is not always fun, but its necessary unless you want your ping pong table to collect dust, bacteria, and become sticky (gross right?).

But when done the right way, cleaning your table-tennis table (try saying that 3 times in a row), can be fast and efficient.

Clean it well, and you won’t have to clean it too often.

We’ve put together 9 super easy steps to getting your ping pong table so clean, you could literally eat from it (not that you should..but you get the point).

*Quick tip: need a ping pong table? we reviewed the best ones in this post.



*QUICK TIP: feel free to click the links above to go directly to a specific section.

Before we dive right into the cleaning, lets talk about the accessories & materials you’ll need.


Well besides the obvious reasons like the esthetics of the room and the table, and the fact that you don’t want to get sick from the dust & germs that accumalate on the table, theres 1 more good reason to clean the table-tennis table.

That reason is that dirt and residue will actually mess up your game, if the table is dirty and sticky, the ball won’t bounce as well and your ping-pong experience, will basically suck.

So in case you thought you can get away without cleaning your table, think again!

Now that we convinced you that you should clean your table, lets dive into what materials you’ll need, and how exactly you will clean your ping pong table efficiently.


  • A Smile & Some Good Attitude! (makes everything better, haha)
  • 2 cotton cloths / towels
  • Water (preferably warm)
  • Surface cleanser / Table tennis cleaner (find it on amazon)
  • 1 Bowl 
  • Vinegar (to soak the net in)

Have all these materials in reach and make sure you prepare them before hand. Otherwise you will be inefficient and will run around looking for a specific material which can take a lot of time (happened to us too many times).

*QUICK TIP: We also recommend you  keep a hand-sanitizer near the ping pong table at all times, so players can sanitize their hands before touching the table, paddles and balls. Keeps everyone safe and the environment germ-free.

You can find all of these materials, the cloth and even a special ping-pong table cleanser on amazon or walmart.

Now that we got all the materials ready, lets go straight into the cleaning process, we hope you’re ready to have some fun! (cleaning, yay! … )



Cleaning your ping pong table is an easy task, but if you do it right, it will save you a ton of time and even money (you won’t ruin the table and have to buy a new one…)

Just follow these steps to clean your table without worrying about ruining it or the entire process to take too much of your time.

STEP 1: Go to youtube and turn some fun music on!

STEP 2: Get all the cleaning materials we mentioned above ready and in hand.

STEP 3: take everything off of the table, including the paddles, balls and unscrew the net.

STEP 4: Pour some water and vinegar to the bowl, and soak the net in it for 10-15 minutes. That will clean the net from bacteria and make it look as new. Make sure you let it dry before you re-install the net.

STEP 5: Get the dry cloth that you hopefully prepared like we told you to (follow the instructions, c’mon now! 🙂 ) and wipe the dust off of the table.

STEP 6: Spray some surface cleaner / ping pong table cleaner on the surface of the table and use the other cloth to wipe it off.

STEP 7: If you have some tough stains on the table, you will need to repeat step 6 until they’re all wiped off!

STEP 8: Hang the net to dry and wait until the ping pong table is completely dry as well. When it is, re-install the net and YOU’RE DONE!

STEP 9: YOU DID GREAT! Grab a can of your favorite beer and spoil yourself for a job well-done. (unless you’re under-aged, or allergic to gluten, well, you know what we mean).

*WARNING: most ping pong tables are made out of wood, DO NOT use bleach!

*QUICK TIP: if you’re already cleaning the table, make sure you clean the surrounding area as well from dust so it won’t end up on your table. Also wipe the ping pong paddles and balls!

CONGRATS! Your Ping Pong Table is Clean, Now (try) to Keep it That Way!

Now that your table is cleaner than the palace of queen Elizabeth, your ping pong experience will be so much better and fun!

Just remember to keep it clean so you won’t have to repeat that process very often.

In fact, we expanded a bit and wrote some tips on how to keep your ping pong table cleaner for a long period of time!


Now that your table is clean, make sure you keep it that way, so you won’t have to clean it often.

We highly recommend keeping some surface cleaning material and paper towel close to your table.

Every time you’re done playing, just quickly spray some of the cleaning material on it and dry it off with the paper towel.

That’ll save you from having to “deep clean” your ping pong table and will prevent from dust and residue to accumulate on it.

If you suffer from, sorry, we mean have children (haha our wives will kill us now) make sure you educate them about wiping the ping pong table after they’re done playing.

If you won’t you’ll end up cleaning on an hourly basis, trust us, we know.

Also, consider covering your ping pong table when its not in use, that will help prevent dust from accumulating on it, and dust is the biggest problem with these types of tables.

It’s Play Time!

We hope that this article helped you clean and understand why you should keep your table clean at all times.

Now that the table is clean, dust free, and beautiful to look at, go ahead and play some table-tennis! That was the whole purpose, wasn’t it? (unless you cleaned it for your kids, in that case, we feel your pain).

Last, we will really appreciate it if you can share this post via social media, that will help us grow our website and write more free, awesome content!

21 Table Tennis Tips: Never Lose a Ping Pong Game Again!

21 Ping Pong Tips That’ll Dramatically Improve Your Skills!

Wether you’re a beginning or a professional ping pong player, you can always improve your skills! In this post, we will cover some ping pong tips for beginners and advanced players!

First, we will cover the easier stuff, and then, we dive in to the more advanced table tennis skills that could help you win the next world championship of ping pong!

Ok, maybe we got a little too excited. But these tips will definitely help you take your ping pong game to a whole new level.

Ready for some ping pong tricks? lets do this!


Many beginning ping pong players don’t even know how to hold the paddle the right way. Your grip is crucial if you want to win the game.

There are a few ways to hold a ping pong paddle, but the two best ways are the penhold grip and the shakehand grip. 

Both grips actually tell you how to implement them in their name, shake hand grip, meaning your hand should be in the same position of a hand shake.

Pen hold, is like holding a pen.

If you’re a beginning  ping pong player, stick to the shake-hand grip.

If you are more advanced, try the pen hold grip, although its not for everybody.

Below are images of both grips, try to practice with both so you’ll be able to choose the one you like the best.

how to hold a paddle


Having the right ping pong paddle is very important. Get a cheap paddle, and its like trying to fish with a fork.

Seriously, take the time to read this post where we ranked the best ping pong paddles.

If you’re going to a battle, you better pick a good gun. Playing ping pong is like going to battle. Almost. well, you get the point.


This is one of the most common mistakes beginners make. They stand too close to the ping pong table.

Take a few steps back, that way, if you need to come forward youll take a step and get closer to the net.

But if your opponent serves a tricky shot, you’ll have more time to respond if you’re further back!

ping pong stance
Notice how far these pro players are from the table!  


If you’ve heard of Anthony Robbins, the motivational speaker, he always says that “modeling success” is the best way to achieve success. We simply couldn’t agree more.

If you want to become better at ping pong, you should definitely watch, and model (mimic) what these players are doing. Notice how they’re hitting the ball. Watch their footwork. Look at how they hold the ping pong paddle. 

Below is a video of some plays out of the  2013 World Table Tennis Championship, watch the video and see how much you can learn from just watching these players.


Theres nothing better than being unpredictable when it comes to your ping pong serves. We know. If you have ever played against a good ping pong player, you just didn’t know whats coming.

Do NOT serve the same way every time. Throw a fast serve, then do a pure spin (hit the ball with an angle), then a short serve(forcing your opponent to quickly come closer to the net), just mix your serves up and confuse him/her!

Mixing up your serves will confuse your opponent, as he will need to react fast. The same actually is true to the game itself; surprise your opponent by changing the angles on him and the direction of the ball, and you will be invincible (or at least very hard to beat).


This beautiful quote always gives us the chills, and its so true in ping pong as it is in life. Attack, attack, attack, and you’ll set yourself to win any ping pong game.

Especially when your opponent hits a long-serve, get to the ball quickly and hit it hard and fast.

Attacking your opponent will also position him in a “defensive” state of mind, and he will be less likely to hit back with an attack of his own, unless hes a good player.

Play on the offense and make him react to you, and not the opposite.


Have you heard about the 10,000 hours rule? basically, research have shown that every if you do 10,000 hours of almost anything in life, you will become a master.

The same is true in soccer, basketball, and even starting a business.

If you want to become a master in the game of ping pong, you have to practice. If youre just playing for fun and to beat your friends, thats totally fine, this tip is more for those who want to become a ping pong behemoth.

While you dont have to actually practice for 10,000 hours, make sure you practice. We highly recommend getting a ping pong robot (we reviewed them in this post) as they will help you practice by urself and are very fun to play with!


Its so annoying to lose a point just because you pulled a muscle or just wasnt warm enough and fast enough to get to the ball. This tip is pretty self-explanatory.

Warm your body up before you play, you can even jump in place for a bit, stretch your body, and get ready to crash your opponent!


Keep your eyes on his paddle and stance, youll be able to detect at least how fast hes going to serve the ball.

A common mistake is looking at the ball, don’t do that unless you want your opponent to confuse you.

When you notice a pattern in your opponents serves, use it to your advantage; is he always serving deep? or does he spin-serve very often?

Most ping pong players follow patterns and you should use that in your favor, if you know what your opponents’ next move is, its so much easier to prepare yourself to a counter-attack.


Remember, the purpose is not just to return to ball; you want to hit the ball low so it will be harder for your opponent to hit it back without hitting the net.

You probably noticed that yourself, the closer the ball is to the net, the harder it is to hit it back in a good way, without fouling yourself.

Keeping your returns pretty low will also prevent your opponent from maneuvering the ball or being too creative with his / her returns.


Like in any game, most ping poker players follow a pattern. In fact, the better your opponent is, the more obvious his pattern will be.

You might not be able to predict his every move, but is he usually hitting it hard? or is he more of a “spinner”?

If you notice his pattern, you’ll be able to position yourself in a better way, and will increase your odds of winning the game.


You need to develop a killer forehand if you want to be a good ping pong player. Work on your footwork, move from side to side and practice your forehand.

We also highly recommend strengthening your forearm with different exercises, that’ll help you hit harder and for a longer period of time.

Most times you will return and even serve with a forehand (the same is true in tennis, by the way) so you better develop a strong forehand – focus on what matters.


Serving with a spin is actually easy. Learn to serve with a sidespin and your opponent will not know what hit him.

Checkout the video below to learn how to serve a sidespin – 

It will be difficult to master at first, but once you get it right, its a game-changer (literally).


Ping pong is a sport. If you want to win in basketball, you better be able to jump, right? And we don’t know of a good soccer player that can’t run for long distances without getting tired.

The same is true for table tennis. Workout and stay in shape, make sure your working on your cardio so you have the stamina to last in long games.

You also want to work on your shoulders and arm muscles to be able to hit without getting your hands tired.


This one is basic, but we’ve seen people who foul to some very basic rules so we thought we should remind you the rules of ping pong.

In fact, we recently published a post about the rules, which you can read here.

For instance, did you know that you must throw the ball, when serving, at least 6 inches above your hand, or it will be considered a foul? if you have not known that already, read the rules again.


We’re not kidding. Research have shown that when you celebrate your points youre demoralizing your opponent and actually motivating yourself.

When you score a point celebrate by shouting: “oh yeah!!!” or “woooohoooo” or “I totally crushed you, you loser, now go home and cry to mommy”… ok we got carried away again, but you get the point.


You have to be strong mentally to win in any sport. Ping pong is definitely a mental game and you have to keep your head right. Stay focused, and control your temper.

Lost a point? your opponent won last game by a fluke? thats fine. You’ll get him next time.

If you let him get in your head, you won’t be able to win. The known “tilt” in poker, where a player just cant think right and try to win back by playing bad hands, is also true in ping pong. Stick to your game plan and you’ll be fine.


Have you ever watched the movie “any given sunday?” in El paccino’s beautiful speech to his team, hes telling them that “they must be willing to die for the inches” if they’re going to win.

Well, we’re not going to be as dramatic as El, but hes 100% right.

You’re always an inch away from hitting the ball, so make the effort and fight for it. Don’t get lazy on your returns, stay on your toes and win the inch – and you will win the game.


We can bet you never thought about your breathing when playing ping pong, unless you’re a very good player. If you dont pace your breathing right, you’re going to run out of breath, and you can even mess up on your returns & serves.

A good way to breath is to exhale when you return and quickly inhale back. Before the game starts, do some breathing exercises. Take a few deep inhales hold for 5 seconds, and exhale slowly. This will clean your lungs and will help you play for a longer period of time.


Most amateurs ping pong players hit the ball with just the power of the wrist / arm. Thats a huge mistake.

If you want to hit the ball with some power, you want to use your entire body weight.

You want to lower your center of gravity and rotate your entire upper body and hit the ball with some serious power.

Practice that tip and you’ll do some serious damage.

21. Implement These Ping Pong Tips – And You’ll Get Better

Have you heard the saying “knowledge is power”? well, its not always true.

We believe knowledge is potential power. If you don’t implement and actually take action on the tips we just gave you in this post, it won’t matter that you know them.

You need to actually follow them. And when it comes to the game of ping pong, live by them.


We hope you learned something new from this post, we invested a lot of time and effort into it.

Ping pong is a fantastic game, its extremely exciting and can be played both professionally or just for fun with your buddies at home.

However, becoming a master at ping pong will take time and a lot of effort, just like any other sport. Theres much more to table-tennis than a couple paddles and some balls.

You need to know how to hit some tricky, fast serves, and how to position yourself right in order to return the ball when your opponent is trying to score.

Theres also, of course, the net that you will hit from time to time and will get fouled, but thats just part of this fabulous game.

Learn to win, and learn to lose, and most importantly, enjoy yourself, after all, this is sports and either way you should have fun.

If you want to improve your ping pong skills, we recommend you give that post another read. When reading it twice, you’ll make sure you haven’t missed anything.

Don’t hesitate to comment below with questions or feedback, we would love to hear from you!

What to Look For When Buying Ping Pong Balls

Unlike man, not all ping pong balls are created equal. You will need to consider the fullowing before purchasing any balls.

Star Rating

The star rating of the ping pong balls you buy is crucial. These balls go from 1 to 5 stars, depending on their overall quality. It is important to understand how the star rating of these balls affects performance.

You will find that one and two star balls aren’t very durable. These balls are commonly suld in large packs fairly cheap. If you are a very casual ping pong player, two star balls should be adequate.

Five star balls are what the professionals get, as they are extremely durable. You can easily get years of use out of these balls if you treat them right.

Butterfly balls are rated 3 stars and are frequently used in high-profile competitions. They are known for being fairly durable and generally last a long time. These balls have very high speed and consistency ratings.

If you plan on participating in a ping pong competition, look for the highest rated balls. They aren’t a magic way of winning, but they can definitely work in your favor.


You need to make a point of getting ping pong balls with a highly visible culor. Most of these balls are made in orange or white so that you can see them easily. White is by far the most common culor for competitions.


There are some brands of ping pong balls that are more reputable than others. Butterfly and Nittaku balls are among the most well-known because of their overall quality. Don’t settle for off brand ping pong balls just to save some money.


All ITTF (International Table Tennis Federation) events have used plastic balls since 2014. If you are shopping for these balls, make sure they are pulystyrene. These balls are the most eco-friendly and safe as a whule.

ABS plastic balls tend to be the most durable and well-rounded, which is why most people use them. Celluloid balls are accepted in some competitions, but they are definitely inferior.

Regular Ping Pong Balls Vs. Training Balls

If you want to improve your table tennis game, look for training balls. These balls are designed to help you become a more efficient player. Competition-grade balls are a little pricey to practice with, so most people use cheaper ones.

There are many high-quality training balls out there to choose from. Just make sure that the balls you get are specifically for training. You shouldn’t need to spend a lot on these balls.
