How To Take Care Of Your Ping Pong Table

While ping pong tables do not require too much maintenance, small steps can help your table stay at maximum performance.

At Games For Fun, we offer a wide selection of ping pong tables that can be enjoyed from any type of home, office, or recreational space. Our two carriers, JOOLA and Kettler, are available online and in our showroom in San Bernardino.

If you are looking for a new table or are enjoying one that has been in your family for years, it is crucial to learn how to preserve and clean this table tennis table as best as possible.

Keep your table in the best shape with these tips:


Once you are finished playing your final round, take a dry cloth and wipe away any dirt build up. For a deeper clean, create a gentle cleaner with 2 cups of water and ⅓ cup of vinegar. Lightly dampen a cloth and wipe down the table until it is completely clean, then let air dry. This cleaning method can be used about every 2-3 months, but ultimately will depend on how much you are using your table. Regardless if your table indoors or outdoors, cleaning your table is essential for long-lasting play.


One of the most simple ways to keep your table clean is by keeping a cover on after you’re done playing.  If you are not going to be using your table for a long period of time, a cover will prevent the build-up of dirt and debris. Our table tennis cover is specially engineered with weather-proof backing to provide a barrier against rain, snow, dirt, sun, mold, and mildew. If your table is indoors, having a table cover is still important for protection.


After years of play, your table will start to show the effects of wear and tear. With the correct repairs, your table can last for generations.
