What Affects the Weight?

There are three main factors that affect the weight of a ping pong table:

  • Frame
  • Storage
  • Wheels and folding mechanism

The frame of the table is the most significant factor that impacts the weight. More affordable ping pong tables (under $300-400) typically have very lightweight frames, whereas mid-size tables often have sturdier designs. The most premium tables usually have very thick and heavy frames to improve stability which can add 100-200 lbs to the overall weight.

Some ping pong tables simply consist of the frame and table top, however some also have built-in storage for the paddles and balls. Typically these tables will weigh around 20-30 lbs more when they have this feature. Additionally, having large wheels and well-built folding mechanisms tends to add a similar amount of weight.

This is typically why the heavier tables are more expensive.
