Competition Level Table Top

This 7/8” high density chipboard table top is the same table top that has been used in three different Olympics. Joola 3000 is ITTF Approved and is regulation size at 9 feet by 5 feet. The blue top is created with a special paint process that minimizes ball marks and eliminates glare.

An ITTF approved WM net set with adjustable height and tensions comes with the table..

Tournament Experienced Option

Beyond the table top being used in Olympics, the JOOLA 3000SC, in particular, is the official table for all major US ATT events. This premier table which is featured in many world competitions can also be featured in your home as they sell tables that have been used in tournaments to the public. Look for a table called Tournament Experienced and you can have your own table that has been featured in a professional competition.

Storage Features

For an area that is used for multiple purposes the automatic folding mechanism on this table is particularly useful. In a matter of moments this centerfold table goes from open to folded up. Remove the net and as the sides are lifted together the end legs fold in.

The 275lb table travels smoothly on its four durable 5” wheels to be moved to an out of the way storage area. Just as easily, the table can be opened and locked in place for play.

Undercarriage Support

Although the JOOL 3000 is a rollaway, it is strongly built with the table top secured to a 2” powder-coated metal frame. Of the four wheels on the center legs, two have locking brakes which are operated by the touch of a foot.

The four corner legs are fitted with solid rubber levelers which are adjusted by hand. The top comes preassembled to the undercarriage making set up simple.

Cons

  • high cost compared to casual use tables
  • doesn’t fold half way for individual play
  • tournament experienced may have significant marks

Pros

  • No assembly necessary
  • easy folding and rolling for storage
