STIGA Triumph Review
The STIGA Triumph table tennis table with Quick Play is an indoor mid-tier table, both in quality and price. While the table is relatively inexpensive compared to other Ping-Pong tables, the surface of the table is a meager 5/8 inch thick, a size not approved by the ITTF. The table is designed for casual players, but still features professional qualities that make this table an international favorite.
- QuickPlay Chassis for Fast Assembly- From Box to Play in 20 Minutes
- 5/8″ Thick Tournament Blue Table Top
- 2″ Self-Opening Steel Legs with 3″ Mag Wheels
- 2″ Steel Apron with Corner Protectors
- 66″ Net and Post Set Included
- For Indoor Use Only
The top of the table is 5/8” thick with a blue “tournament” colored style. Overall, the table looks very professional. The table is designed for easy assembly and storage with self opening legs and curved steel linkages (these help it store compact).
The table comes with 3 inch ball bearing casters that are the standard for inside table tennis tables. The table comes with the play back position, which is a key ability if you want to practice against yourself in the wee hours of the night.
The table comes with a 66” net and posts set up but no paddles or balls. One of the great features about the this table is its ease and compact folding and storage ability. The table’s dimensions when folded are 62″ H x 60″ W, but what makes the table so desirable is its ability to fold out and play in minutes..
Very fast set up
The Quick Play quick set up features an expected assembly time of only 20 minutes, which laps other tables in the assembly world champion time race.
For indoor tables, this table is relatively cheap. While the table top is not as thick as we would have hoped, the table is still quite solid for the price. If you are looking to play on a solid full size Ping-Pong table but not willing to pay thousands of dollars for a tournament level table, the Stiga Triumph could be a good option.
The major drawback with this table is the table top. The 5/8” thickness will prevent a tournament level bounce and can also lead to denting and scratching of the surface. Another concern that I have noticed is that customers with mild problems, like pre-existing scratches or small paint blemishes that complained to the company were met with an apprehensive attitude.
Overall we enjoyed the STIGA Triumph and considering the price and thickness of the table it was fine to play on for a bit of fun. Comparing it to some of the other ping pong tables on the market it has a very fast set up but we would have liked a slightly better bounce.
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.
