Each of the 4 corners is not only reinforced but also secured with a buckle strap, preventing the cover from tearing off, flapping or blowing off during high-wind weather.

What’s more, this cover is dual-function, helping prevent damage and offer optimal protection for both indoor and outdoor table models.

As the manufacturer warns, this cover is not ideal for the outdoor storage of indoor tables. In fact, it’s best designed for storage in climate-regulated spaces like the garage, covered patio, gazebo or deck. That’s because excess moisture can easily cause your table to warp.

5 Tips on How to Pick the Best Ping Pong Table Cover This Year

Are you in the market for a reliable ping pong table cover? In a sea of duds, knock-offs, and flimsy cheapies, it can be tough to find a quality cover that will provide fuss-free protection for your table year after year.

Compounding your search, table tennis covers come in a wide range of design styles, sizes, and brands. Well, picking the right cover is not exactly rocket science, but you need to keep a few key considerations in mind so you don’t spend your money on a mediocre product.

1. Design of the table – Flat vs. Upright

When choosing a ping pong table cover, it’s crucial to consider the size, shape, and design of your table. More specifically, pick the right size to match the measurements of your ping pong table.

Most regulation size tables measure 5ft in width and come in 9ft lengths, so your cover should be a touch bigger than the table itself. That’s why we recommend a cover designed and produced specially for your table brand.

For example, if you already have a JOOLA Advantage table, it’s imperative that you purchase a cover meant for this particular model, so you can save yourself lots of measurement headaches.

As far as design and construction go, it all comes down to how you plan to store your table. Do you intend to keep your table in an upright (folded-up) or flat open position?

Upright cover – The standard upright or fold-up style cover drops down 30 inches and measures 60-inch square inches on the top. The folded-up table will easily slip into the cover which is usually secured with clamps to the middle legs of the frame.

Flat cover – This type of cover is designed to protect flat-open tables in their full-stretch position. They are typically rimmed with an elastic material to create a snug wrap around the tabletop. A standard flat cover would come at 60” deep x 110” wide x 30” high and is normally attached to the outer legs of the table.

You need to arrive at a firm decision ahead of the purchase since a flat cover cannot be used on a fold-up table, and the other way around is also true. In reality, however, you may have to invest in two cover styles to cater to both storage positions.

2. Type of the cover

In a broad sense, there are three common types of ping pong table covers, and your choice depends on the eventual use.

a) Outdoor covers – Designed for use outside, these covers are heavy-duty and far sturdier than their indoor counterparts. They are built to beat all-weather elements, including rain, wind, sun, and high humidity.

To impart these qualities, they are crafted from waterproof, high-gauge fabrics and other weather-resistant materials. In addition, they’re equipped with hems and buckles to keep the cover in place.

b) Indoor covers – As you may already know, these covers are designed for indoor use in places like garages, rec rooms, clubs, and other covered game rooms.

These covers are typically lightweight and made from fairly strong materials, offering some protection against moisture, spills, dirt, and dust. Expect the price of indoor covers to be on the lower end.

c) Crossover covers – These are dual-function covers suitable for both outdoor and indoor usages. While they are often lightweight, they are built to be sturdy and durable enough to withstand most outdoor elements.

Color and fit of the cover

Once you’ve chosen the correct type and size to fit your table tennis table, you may also want to select a color or theme that suits your interior décor, style, and personality. This makes more sense if you intend to keep your table in a focal spot within your room, especially in your living room, a decorated basement or a game/rec room with high foot traffic.

Fit is another paramount factor to keep in mind. For a hassle-free fitting, stick with table covers with elastic edges. Even better, go for ones with fitted or padded corners to make sure your cover fits the table snugly and securely, as well as reduce damage and scratching when in transit.

This is particularly important for outdoor covers. If it’s too large for the table, the cover might get caught up in whirlwinds and end up being torn or blown off. Even worse, they can say around the edges, accumulating dust or water, which might lead to mildew and mold growth.

4. Material

Material make is another essential consideration. The type of material to opt for will depend on the intended use and where you live.

If your outdoor cover will be used in an area prone to storms and high winds, it’s a good idea to choose one made from heavy-duty polyester with breathable edges.

Live in an area that receives strong, year-round sun? It’s best to go for UV-treated materials like UV-resistant acrylic or nylon

As a general rule, you should steer clear of covers made of plastic sheets or tarps. Instead, you should stick with ones made out of heavy-gauge woven polyester, leatherette, vinyl or PVC materials.

5. Your budget

Ultimately, your budget will do all the talking. Luckily, ping pong table covers don’t cost a small fortune, so you can expect to spend as little as $10 or as much as $150 or even more.

When shopping for covers, the more expensive doesn’t always translate to better quality. If the price sounds too good to be true, the cover probably is a dud. That’s why we recommend buying from highly-rated, trustworthy brands like STIGA, JOOLA, Kettler, Covermate, Hathaway, Cornilleau, Killerspin, and Butterfly, just to name a few.

Unless you own a mini or kids table tennis table, you should avoid any ping pong table cover that costs under $30, as they are usually made out of mediocre materials that tend to tear off easily. Well, it would be terrible to buy a cheap cover that will melt or leak dirty water on your expensive table.

With this in mind, be sure to set aside between $50 and $100 for a high-quality, durable table cover that will provide no-nonsense protection for your table.

Still, spending more than $100 on a ping pong table cover may be a little overkill unless you have a bottomless budget.
