Cornilleau Sport 250S Outdoor Table Tennis Table Review

10 Year guarantee!!

Most indoor table tennis tables are made with a painted chipboard table top and not very good for being used outdoors. As after a while the bad weather effects the table and the table top will start to crack, discolour and blister. That makes the table tennis table become un-usable.

Cornilleau outdoor tables tops are completely weather proof and have been treated with a 'Soft Matt' 5mm special laminate coating which also have a glare reduction surface. If you live in a very sunny climate and have an outdoor patio to play on,  the glare reduction will come in very handy.

The main benefit of this is that when you're playing the game and the ball bounces on your side of the table you won't be blinded by the sun and will be able to see the ball.

Cornilleau actually provide a 10 year guarantee with this table. Which is a very nice touch and it proves that they are commited to providing excellent tables that will stand the test of time.

If you're in the market for an outdoor ping-pong table, it's hard to find another company that will match the quality, build and expert knowledge of these outdoor tables. Cornilleau have nine different tables [Amazon link] in their outdoor table tennis range, which vary in bounce quality, materials used and purpose.

Built for all weathers

The Cornilleau Sport Crossover 250S is a good looking outdoor table which comes with a dark green or blue table top. They both look fantastic so it's your choice which one to have. Personally I prefer a blue table top as it looks a bit fresher than the green table top.  Crossover means that the table has been designed for indoor and outdoor use. So you get the benefit of two types of tables for one price tag.

The S Stands for Soft Matt, which is the name they have given to the 5mm laminate table top. The name also gives you the impression that it's anti -glare, a soft finish on the table top and a great bounce with the treatment they have given the table surface.

If a bounce is no good on a table, and there are loads of tables on the market with a bad bounce, the game is no fun at all.
