Kettler Axos 1 - A Best-Seller Table Tennis Table

We review the Kettler Axos 1, one of the top-selling, best outdoor ping-pong tables which comes with an outdoor accessory bundle.

In this bundle Kettler provide eveything you need

You can just buy the table on its own, but in this outdoor bundle Kettler provide everything you need.

This includes: Outdoor Net and Posts, 2 Kettler Halo 5.0 Outdoor Rackets, Kettler Outdoor Cover, and 3 balls.

If you are buying a table tennis table for the home for the first time, then this is an entire kit that will save you the bother of buying individual pieces.

Update: For the UK it looks like the bundle we talk about in this review is now sold out but you can still buy the table by itself:

The Kettler brand has a range of outdoor table tennis tables, two of the currently available models are called Axos Outdoor.

The Axos Outdoor 1 and the Axos Outdoor 3, to be precise! The Kettler Axos 1 outdoor table tennis table is a very popular, as the design, look and feel of the ping pong table is excellent.

The table tops that Kettler provide on these models are pretty great. You can't beat that good ol' German engineering and quality!

These table tennis tables comes with good value price tag which makes them appealing to the recreational and family ping pong player that Kettler have in mind here.

The Kettler Axos Outdoor 1 comes with a green table top which is 22mm thick and has been coated with a water based paint which is scratch proof.

This makes the Kettler Outdoor Axos 1 table tennis top durable enough to withstand the scorching sun-rays of Florida, as well as the snow and rain of Chicago winters!

The legs are a little thin but should be strong enough to hold the table top and under carriage steady under most circumstances.

The under side has been well thought though, as Kettler have provided an ALU-TEC Climate-Control base, which helps to keep the table top in good shape all the time.

The ALU-TEC metal expands and contracts as the weather changes. That said, this is the most basic range that Kettler has to offer, so you can expect no real thrills with this table, it's just a basic table top.

For example, it has four wheels but only two of which are movable making it a little limited to steer if you need to move it around frequently.

Who is behind the Kettler brand?

Kettler is a quality German brand, founded in 1949. The Kettler brand is known for its design, quality of build and fitness equipment.

All Kettler table tennis tables are still manufactured to high standards in Germany.

Kettler manufactures other things such as fitness products, bikes, toys and even garden furniture.

The good news is that the brand understands outdoor products and it is perfectly suited to manufacturing outdoor table tennis and ping pong tables.

Does The Kettler Axos 1 Outdoor Table Have A Good Bounce?

The table comes with a 22mm thick table top which provides a bounce just as good as any professional table tennis or ping-pong table.

Does It Come With A Net?

Yes, it comes with an outdoor net, which means that Kettler have made it weatherproof.

The net posts are easy to clamp on and off too.

Does It Come With Rackets And Table Tennis Balls?

Yep! The bundle comes with two outdoor paddles called Kettler Halo 5.0 and three table tennis balls.

Is It Easy To Store Away?

Yes, very easy to store away, not that you would want too! Table Tennis is an addictive game - I've been playing for 30 years!

That said, folding the table away is not really a job for one person. It's definitely a two person job.

It looks a little tight on space when folding it away and you can easily get the net caught. I would recommend taking the net off before folding it away.

The good safety feature here is that it has two red safety clips on each side to lock the table when it's opened and closed.

These locks keep the table secure when opened and prevents it from moving around when you're trying to have a game or when the table is folded away.

When the table is folded it doesn't take up all that much space as it's 22 inches wide and 67 inches in height.

It comes with a package bundle, outdoor cover and paddles included ;-)

What Are The Dimensions Of The Table?

These are the same dimensions you would get on a professional table: 108in L x 60in W x 30in H.

When it's stored away the dimensions are: 22in wide x 67in high x 72in long.

How Does The Kettler Outdoor Table Tennis Table Handle Outdoor Weather?

It's built for outdoors and has been designed for all weathers. In fact, the weather-proofing is the key feature of this table.

If you're planning on playing a lot of ping-pong outside, then this is a great purchase.

As mentioned above, The underside has been well thought out, as Kettler provide an ALU-TEC Climate-Control base which helps to keep the table-top in good shape.

The ALU TEC metal expands and contracts as the weather changes.

Should I Buy A Cover For It?

No, this Kettler outdoor accessory bundle comes with a cover! What a great result ;-)

Overall Verdict?

This is not an ITTF approved table, so it's not made with club level players in mind. It's made for families who are social with an outdoor space or back yard so they can have friends over for a game.

It's a really good quality table which will stand the test of time and it has a nice weather-proofing feature on the underside of the table.

If you will be keeping it outside permanently, make sure you keep the cover on it when you're not using it to keep the table well preserved.

It has a great bounce for a table top as it's a 22mm thick table top. Most professional table tops are between 22 – 25mm thick to give it the best bounce.

So 22mm will give you a great game and a lot of fun.

For an outdoor table one of the key things is to ensure that the table top won't warp or be affected by the weather.

The Kettler brand understands this and so the top is covered with reinforced lacquer and a weatherproof UV protection finish.

This table top also comes with a 10 year warranty

It's a basic table, so it might not be as heavy-duty as the other Kettler table tennis tables in the range.

That said, it's not bad for the price and it comes with a great bundle.

This Kettler Axos 1 is perfect for recreation play at home, a community center or a church hall.

Update: For the UK it looks like the bundle we talk about in this review is now sold out but you can still buy the table by itself:
