What to Expect

We take a look at all the features you will get if you break the bank on the Butterfly Centrefold 25 table. It is an ITTF-approved table, so you can expect the very best!

Consistent Bounce

For a table that is approved by the ITTF, you can be sure that it has the most consistent bounce ever.

It comes with a thickness of 1”, which is equivalent to 25mm, which means that you will get a consistent bounce, as long as you own this ping pong table, and take care of it. It is supported with alloy steel from beneath.

Strong Protection

If the top of the table excited you, then wait when you find out what is underneath the brilliant table top. It is supported by a base, made from a strong steel frame apron, that not only protects the table top but also stops it from getting knocked down or potential scratches.

The best thing about the table is that it has magenta corners which act as protector pieces.

Butterfly Centrefold 25 Table Folded

Fold & Roll Design

The Butterfly Centrefold 25 as the name suggests, comes with a new design that can be folded and easy to roll.

This also includes a safety latch that can hold the table in a strong position when it is folded, which means it will not open up unexpectedly. This makes the table very easy and convenient to store, as you can just fold it within seconds, when not in use, and move the two halves together.

Adjustable Feet and 5-Inch Locking Rubber Wheels

The table is supported by adjustable feet that ensure a level playing surface. These are supported by height adjusters on four of the outer legs, making sure that the table does not move. You can also adjust the height of the table thanks to this support.

In addition to the adjustable feet, there are 5-inch locking rubber wheels which are large enough to roll the table across any surface. Transportation of the table seems like a breeze and you can also use the locks to secure the table during play.

Fully Preassembled

The Centrefold 25 is a table that people seem to love for many different reasons. However, the best fact about the Centrefold 25 is that it comes fully preassembled, which means as soon as you take it out of the packaging, you can play at the same time. You do not need to assemble it like many other tables which require hours of assembly before you can start playing.

ITTF Approved

The best part about the Centrefold 25 is that it is approved by the International Table Tennis Federation. It has been used in many different top-level tournaments and it is ideal for professionals, as well as, amateurs. You get to experience the highest level of table tennis by playing on the Centrefold 25!

Available in Two Colors

The Centrefold 25 is available in two beautiful and vibrant colors. You can buy it in either green or blue. The green color is what we prefer, but it is really up to you, both look great!

Tournament Approved Net Included

The Europa Net Set which is a tournament-level net is also included in the packaging of the Centrefold 25.

Pros

Packed with a Warranty

Butterfly Centrefold 25 comes with a 5-year warranty! While this makes up for the exorbitant amount of money you have to pay to buy this fantastic table, it also means how certain Butterfly is, regarding their product.

They bet on their tables to last, at least, 5 years, ensuring longevity and quality.

Quality Table Top

The table top that comes with the Centrefold 25 not only ensures consistent bounce thanks to its 25mm thick table top, but it also comes with a scratch-less top. This makes the table top, one of the best in the market, and it is one of the biggest reasons why this table is used across most tournaments in the world.

No Assembly Required

The Butterfly Centrefold 25 comes with complete preassembly, unlike its weightier counterpart, the Butterfly Playback Rollaway. This means that you do not have to worry about assembling the table, when it comes, you can be satisfied that the company sends it fully assembled.

All of this is convenient and means that you only have to concern yourself with playing table tennis and not assembling the table.

Easy Storage

The storage is made fairly easy, despite how much the table weighs. This is because of the red safety levers, which are on each half of the folding table, and it can be done with the help of a maximum of two people. Once you fold it, its dimensions become 20’’ across, which means you can pretty much store it anywhere.

Strong Frame & Undercarriage

There is a rail attached to the table apron which is made of steel and is 2.75”. It also protects the surface and it has legs consisting of 2” making it durable and strong. The table is also supported by wheels, which are of top quality as they are 5” and are lockable. It also has adjustable feet for extra smooth play.

Net & Posts Included

Most tables that come with a net and posts, usually have a terrible net which simply does not compliment the quality of the table. That is not the case with the Centrefold 25, it comes with the Europa Net Set, which is tournament standard net and post set. Butterfly takes their responsibility of delivering quality products, very seriously!

Butterfly Centrefold 25 Table Play

Cons

Costs (possibly) an arm and a leg

Without exaggeration, this is one of the most expensive tables in the market. There is good reason to pay the money, but it is very expensive and might not suit most of the buyers. This is because most people cannot afford it, and that is primarily down to the fact that it is very expensive!

Without play-back position

As we talked about how expensive the table is, it should have been accompanied by a playback option. However, the problem is that the Centrefold 25, folds from the center, which means there is not a lot of option for giving the playback position, as well.

Very heavy

The table weighs approximately 290lbs. It is a very, very heavy table and might not be easy to move around on your own. However, it is supported by big wheels, but it is still quite expensive.

Our Rating: 4.7/5

The Butterfly Centrefold 25 is one of the best tables around. It is a fantastic product made by Butterfly and it offers smooth and consistent play thanks to its 25mm table top. It makes for the perfect table, with the big wheels and easy storage.

We love the fact that it comes in two quality colors, and that it comes with such a long warranty but it is still quite expensive. However, if you can afford it, you should not buy any other table!

Frequently Asked Questions

How to Assemble the Butterfly Centrefold 25?

It is usually asked by buyers, that how can they assemble the Centrefold 25. This is a non-issue because the table comes preassembled by Butterfly. You do not have to stress over assembling this fantastically engineered table, it will be delivered to you in a ready-to-play style and you can play as soon as it arrives!

Conclusion

Conclusively, the Butterfly Inside Table Tennis Table is one of the best tables made. It is not only supremely well-constructed, but it also comes with a lot of convenience for the buyer, especially with the wheels and the folding. In addition to the convenience, the Butterfly Centrefold 25 is also aesthetically pleasing and appeals to more than one set of fans, as it comes in two separate colors of blue and green!

We love the Centrefold 25, despite its expensive price tag, because it comes with a five-year warranty. This means you can easily contact Butterfly in case of any potential problems, but there should not be any problem, because of its strong frame and scratch-resistant table top. The best thing, though, has to be the fact that it comes 100% preassembled, and you can start playing as soon as it arrives!

We also love how small it gets with the folding mechanism, and how that means you can store it almost anywhere, you want. The table lock is an exceptional feature that helps the table surface staying level and you do not have to worry about the table opening unexpectedly.
