Space needed to play ping pong at home

Table tennis is a widely recognized and practiced sport, but certainly not many people are unaware of its rules or game recommendations. When we play ping pong outdoors, there are usually no space problems, but when we move on to playing at an indoor ping pong table, the spaces are reduced so it is important to know how much space is needed to play table tennis well.

Compared to most sports, the size requirements of the playing area are relatively small, but there are a few Suggested spatial measures depending on the competition or level of playWe assume that a ping pong table of regulatory size measures 2.74 m in length x 1.525 m in width, so the minimum recommended to play beginner level, leisure or training without restricting the type of movements and / or the play space around the four sides of the table is 1.5 or 1.8 m.For intermediate level players start getting more movements during the game so they start wanting more space. At least 2.4m behind the table and about 1.5m on each side.For advanced games, players may need more space around them as they engage in intense play with high-level opponents. In this case, it is recommended that the table be at least 3.6m behind and between 1.8m and 2.1m on each side.At the Olympic level, the ping pong playing space can not be less than 14 meters long and 7 meters wide, as well as plenty of free up space.

Another aspect to consider when considering where to place the ping pong table is the type of floorA good floor is important as your level of play increases, it is recommended that it be non-slip so that players can move quickly without slipping. Before buying a ping pong table, you are advised to note that you have enough space for you to be able to reap the higher performance. If you progress in the game a little bit, the space may become small and will not allow you to advance the level by limiting your movements. Once you know where you are going to put it and you have plenty of space, all you have to do is choose the perfect ping pong table for you, and let’s play!Photo Creative Commons Flickr
