Table Tennis Conversion Top – Make your Pool Table a Ping Pong Table

A Table tennis conversion top is a great way to make your pool table into a ping pong table in a matter of minutes.  It’s by far the easiest and cheapest way to get your kids into table tennis so long as you have a billiards table.  Basically, what this is is a large wooden table that can be installed onto the top of your pool table.  The wooden ping pong surface is padded and designed to fit over either a 7 foot or 8 foot pool table and be secured with clamps.  By far the biggest difference between the different types of conversion tops is whether to go with a 1/2 inch thick table top or a 3/4 inch table top.  The difference could cost you around a $100 and really depends on your situation.

There are many different brands, options, and features available that make choosing one a little difficult.  In future posts we’ll do some reviews on tennis table conversion tops to give you an idea of what you’re looking at and what would work best for you and your kids.  I just wanted to provide this as an option in case you have a pool table and wanted to get a little more use out of it.  If this looks like an option for you and something you want to research more, check out the following articles:

One thing to keep in mind if you do go for these options is to make sure that a net is part of the purchase.  Some products sell the net separately and it can be a bit of a disappointment to find out that you can’t set it all up right away.  Some of the best deals you find on the internet are with package deals that include the table conversion top, paddles, net and balls.  This guarantees that everything is compatible and ready to go so you can get started right away.
