Here are some of the features that you might expect when you buy this product.
JOOLA premium table tennis net features tightening spring clamps with protective rubber pads and an easy attachment system. You can conveniently set the net tension using the ball and chain at both ends.
The net is high-quality but incredibly lightweight, making it highly portable and easy to set up.
Excellent Customer Service by JOOLA
JOOLA is a household name in table tennis. The company specializes in professional table tennis equipment and has sponsored the Olympics and World Championships. The brand has the most prompt and efficient customer service, and you will not be disappointed.
Made of cotton mesh, JOOLA premium inside table tennis net is lightweight but sturdy and durable.
Cheap nets can get torn or ripped in time but this one lasts. The base is also thick enough to withstand offensive shots and the net wouldn’t budge. The metal posts wouldn’t get damaged even after years of use.
JOOLA premium inside table tennis net is regulation-sized which means that it will easily fit a 9 x 5 feet table as well. The net is 72 inches long with a height of 1.5 inches, a size that fits that ITTF regulations for net length and height.
We loved how easy it was to install this net. Spring clamps make it fairly convenient to fix the net onto the table. To adjust the tension, simply use the chain beads to hook the net on the sides of the table.
Below the posts, you will find a small cut where you can fix the chain so that it remains stationary.
JOOLA premium inside table tennis net is designed to be used in tournaments. This net is double-woven with cotton steel threads, which makes it both durable and flexible.
Spring clamp posts are also metal and are unlikely to break or rust. You can use this net for tables as thick as 1.5 inches.
You would find several designs of nets in the market but the best one is the rubber-padded clamp design as it is used in professional tournaments. JOOLA premium inside table tennis net also features this design.
It has a screw-on system, and you can easily tighten it against a table.
Adjustable Height and Tension
You can customize this net according to your need, just like a professional net used in tournaments, such as the Olympics. The posts have a spring system that you can use to adjust the height of the net while the ball chain helps adjust the tension.
Poor Quality Control
Some customers have reported that they received damaged products and sometimes found some parts missing. Although JOOLA is a credible brand, they seem to have poor quality control for this net.
If you get the unpleasant surprise of having a compromised product, contact JOOLA.
As we mentioned earlier, the clamp size of this net is 1.5 inches. It expands to a maximum of 1.8 inches and cannot go beyond. This means that if you have a table with a thicker surface, the net wouldn’t fit.
We recommend measuring your table thickness before you buy this product and if your table is thicker, this net is not for you.
We find the JOOLA premium inside table tennis net to be more on the expensive side and we believe that you could find better products at lesser rates.
For example, the STIGA Premium VM Net Set is retailed at a lower price and is even more premium quality than this one, with an extra pair of tension adjusters.
Although the size and dimensions are according to the formal regulations, JOOLA premium inside table tennis net is not ITTF-approved so it cannot be used in serious competitions. We recommend this net only for intermediate players who are trying to enhance their ping pong skills.
Our Rating: 4.0/5
