The popular table tennis table Joker from Schildkröt is the entry-level model with a great price-performance ratio. The Joker is just the thing for the leisure game at home in the hobby cellar, the garage, etc. The plate is made of a 19mm chuck. Particle boards are also used in competition tables and have a much better (higher) ball jump than all outdoor panels (eg aluminum composite panels or melamine resin panels). But: Chipboard is not waterproof and therefore should not get wet. Nothing speaks against a game in the dry garden, only the plate must then be cleared again into the dry!
