What experts liked
Tabletop provides an impressive bounce. Coated with scratch-resistant paint. The entire table is waterproof.
- BestReviews
We are amazed at how the blue tabletop surface has remained so clear after all these years of being outdoors. Quality is pretty good on this model.
- Best Outdoor Ping Pong Tables
This is a playing surface that can pretty much withstand anything and continue looking great and providing a good playing experience with a nice consistent bounce.
- Pong Hero
The most fascinating feature about this Kettler Top Star XL Outdoor Table Tennis Table is the 7/8 inch original water-resistant taped up aluminum composite play-offs top with ALU-TEC™ giving it the Climate Control Technology, hence users can be sure of controlled contractions and expansion as a result of weather changes, making it the perfect outdoor ping pong table.

What experts didn't like
Assembly is not simple and may require two people.
- BestReviews
The biggest drawback on this table is that there are no leg levelers. We often play with the table on aggregate rock which is notorious for uneven surfaces.
- Best Outdoor Ping Pong Tables
Probably the biggest downside with this table is the assembly process. The table ships with many different parts and putting it all together can be difficult for some.
- Pong Hero
Even with the slight tournament features, this table tennis table is not tournament ready because the bounce on the table is below regulation standards, as a result of the climate control technology. The other major concern is assembly, assembling parts of this table after unpacking is somewhat complicated.
