Self opening legs & levellers for a smooth game

The heavy-gauge steel legs of the Optimum 30 measure 2-2/5 x 1-3/5 inches for unmatched rigidity. 4 leg levelers ensure that the table is perfectly flat for tournament-level quality.

Strong thick apron for extra support

The 2 -2/5-inch profiled steel apron provides exceptional support for the table top, ensuring perfectly even bounce across the entire table.

Wheel locks for extra safety

Supporting the transportability of the table are 4-inch machine-grade casters that allow the table to easily glide over any surface, and, once the table is in place, locking wheels reinforce its stability.

Play-back position

When you don’t have another person to play Table Tennis with, the play-back position is the best thing to hone your skills, because who better to practice against than yourself? Simply fold one half of the table up and you have a fierce opponent that will return any serve.

Easy folding

The table is very easy to fold away as you don’t have to detach the net which takes a step out of set up and pack down. This table is great for families or more serious players, the surface is extremely thick so the bounce will be uniform and consistent, and the chassis and supporting structure is thick, so you know this table will last years to come.


The STIGA Optimum 30 is a serious table tennis table that should only be purchased by individuals that want a high-quality table that even the pro’s would be happy to play on. Not only that, but it’s backed by STIGA, one of the leaders in manufacturing table tennis tables.

Eugene (Gene) Sandoval has been one of those guys who spent too many hours around ping pong tables in high school. However, soon enough, Gene understood that there is more to ping pong than having fun. That is how he started a journey that made Eugene one of the experienced semi-professional ping pong players in the United States. As the founder of the PingPongRuler, Eugene spends most of his time surrounded by ping pong tables and research. He always has this knack for coming up with new ping pong strategies and telling the good and bad equipment apart.
