That is why the Midsize ping pong table is ideal for small spaces that can’t accommodate full size tables. The equipment designed is for all levels and multiple use tables are a must-buy for people living in apartments where this mid size table can be easily stored in most closets.

Moreover, its compact storage fits in a game room, too, and the best part is, you can start your kids getting interested in table tennis by having them play on a smaller table or use each half as a card table. It comes with net set included.

100% Preassembled

The JOOLA Midsize table tennis table is a mini ping pong table that sets up with two halves. However, you can save the hassle of having to set it up because the JOOLA Midsize table tennis table always comes 100% preassembled and in the form of one solid piece. It also has a net included and it will not take a lot of time from unboxing to playing.

The assembly required the pre-connected folding legs, that you have to open up, join the two table halves, and start your game within seconds. The playing surface delivers true and consistent bounce as expected from full size ping pong tables.

Ideal for Multi-usage

JOOLA Midsize table tennis table is not only the best table for table tennis usage but multi purpose table halves are also perfect for other usages like playing poker, card table for kids games etc.

You can use free-standing multi purpose table halves for all kinds of different uses, making it great not only for playing table tennis but also for hosting a fun and entertaining game night. From beer pong to card games, playing poker or indoor games, this is a useful ping pong table as each half is a near perfect square and can easily stand alone!

The separate halves of the tables can be placed together, used as game tables or card table for entertaining guests and compact storage fits in most closets, behind the sofa or even under the bed.



One of the best features of the JOOLA Midsize tennis table is that the equipment designed is super lightweight with a thinner frame. Compared to the regulation-sized ping pong tables, this tennis table is featherweight. Weighing under 30 kgs, the JOOLA Midsize table tennis table offers a lot of options with portability and convenience. While it may not be a regulation height table, it is perfect for the kids to play and move around.

The problem with the heavier ping pong full size tennis table is always about the fact that you cannot move it, but this gives you so many options. Especially, when you consider the fact that the two table halves can be used independently, as well.

JOOLA Midsize Compact Table


Smaller than Regulation Size

Being a mini ping pong table, this is not a standard-sized, regulation ping pong table so you should adjust your expectations accordingly in this price. It is a mini table smaller than the actual full size table tennis table, so if you are used to playing table tennis on full size tables then this half sized mini table will take you some time to adapt to this.

Poor Bounce

The mini table is ideally made for ping pong and recreational purposes only, so the bounce is not consistent as the table top is quite thin, opposed to other ping pong tables from JOOLA like the NOVA DX outdoor table. If you use a playing surface with a thicker table, then you will find it slightly hard to adjust to this poor surface.

No Paddles or Balls

The ping pong mid size table costs a lot less but most customers expect it to come with paddles and balls. However, that is not the case, as you only get the table in this price. You will have to buy the paddles and balls, separately.

Missing Screws

Some customers had a poor experience buying this mini ping pong table because they reported missing screws. We suggest inspecting for any missing screws as soon as the table arrives so that you can either report it or get it fixed.

Our Rating: 4.2/5

While this mini ping pong table is not ideal for professional play, for its cost and its purpose, it makes a very decent purchase among ping pong tables.
