This is a super functional table tennis table and one of the best table tennis tables reviews that we have looked at so far. It is ideal for bridging the gap between recreational players and semi club professional players. this means that you get a great bounce on the table and really good value for money.
The Joola Tour 1500 is the lightest of the Tour family tables and that is one reason that we recommend it over the others for use at home. It is functionaly the same as the other models but a lot easier to move around the home when folding and storing!
First up, here is something about the famous Joola (pronounced Hula) brand. Joola is a specialist table tennis company that helps nurture the game worldwide. They produce the highest quality table tennis equipment and clothing to support this fantastic game. Joola was founded in the 1950s and is under the leadership of Michael Bachtler.
Joola is a real visionary company
providing some of the best equipment for every level of player from the home player to club players, all recreational players and even the professional table tennis players.
With that in mind, Joola have produced the “TeamUSA” approved ' Tour 1500 indoor table tennis table. This table tennis table has been crafted with the recreational home player in mind who wants to have something a little better than a basic table tennis table.
It comes with a blue 15mm table top which provides an really good bounce and produced from top quality materials to last for a very long time to come.
The Joola Tour 1500 Table is really well priced for the quality and is spot on for families don't want to spend to much and are working on a budget.
The table is supported by a solid undercarriage of powder coated metal which when folded away, fold automatically when you have finished with your game.
What i'm really impressed with is the quality of the wheels, it might not seem much but when you're having to fold the table away after every game the smoothness of the wheels really helps as you do not need much effort to push the table into it's storage space.
The table top comes with white lines that mark out the game dividing lines which means you can play doubles with your family and no-one is left out of the fun.
This is interesting to me, as because it's an indoor table tennis table, it's not all that heavy and you can still have a great game not worrying if the table will shake as some of the other lighter tables on the market, as it comes with such a sold metal under-frame.
It's really simple to set up and you can fold each half up to put it away in storage.
Can you play on your own?
One thing I did notice was that you can actually fold one half down and have a game of table tennis with yourself! It's great fun when you want to a quick knock up and practise some of those shots when you want to get a competive advantage over your family!
I know when I was a kid, I used to spend every waking hour in the summer house at the end of the garden playing, practising my serves on my one. Trying out different types of serves and seeing what spins I can use to fool my opponent.
Table Tennis is an art form!
and people play with such passion for hours on end, so once you start and you get good, you can't really stop!
OK now back to this review ;-) once you have received delivery of the table tennis table, you can screw on the feet and a couple of tweaks later your up and running playing table tennis in about 20mins.
One of the really cool features is that it comes with a double anti-tilting device, why is this a really cool feature? Well if you're child or someone else puts your hand on the table and it would start to collapse a little and you could tilt the table, so it's almost essential and made with safely in mind.
OK, here are some quick facts you can have a glance over if you're in a hurry.
Does it come with a Net?
Yep, it sure does. 15.24 cm width of net and posts which have a clamps attached to the table. The net is propped up by a cord which is then put at each end of the table.
What does TeamUSA approved mean?
TeamUSA is the US government national commity which supports the game to help professional players in the Olympic games and Paralympic games. So the table and brand you're buying has been approved by the USA team, meaning the table to be perfectly fit to play on.
What size and weight is the JOOLA Tour 1500 Indoor Table Tennis Table?
62.6 x 57.1 x 4.5 inches in size and 198 pounds in weight
Does the Joola Tour 1500 stay still when playing?
Yes, it comes complete lockable wheels so it doesn't move when you're playing.
Is it a good bounce?
It's a perfect bounce for the player who is a pro-recreational player and wanting to improve their game!
Does it come with a bat and balls?
No, you will need to purchase a separate bat and ball.
Other Upgrade Options
However, as I mentioned at the top of this review, this model the Tour 1500 is the best bang for your buck and a lot lighter in weight than the other heavier tables. It is a lot easier to move around and store away due to the lighter weight and the 15mm top will provide you with enough bounce to play and practise your game at home without ever needing to upgrade the table.
