Clark – This review is from: Floating Pool Pong Table (Toy) A fun game. Don’t expect it to play like regular ping pong … you need to learn to keep your paddle completely above the water (harder than it sounds, at first), the board is of course quite smaller than a regular board, and inevitably water will splash on the board resulting in strange ball bounces. That’s all part of the fun for me, and I don’t really understand the other customer reviews in which people seemed to expect a ping pong experience similar to land play. That being, said, the durability of this game is atrocious, mainly for two reasons. First, the posts which hold up the net are of some strange variety of plastic which seems to make them easily breakable. But much worse, the board surface actually warps over time, becoming separated from the material underneath along the seams, and forming various cracks, valleys and bumps which (unlike afore-mentioned water-on-board) make the game nearly impossible to play. In addition, you’ll likely receive paddles which are warped and need to be replaced, though you can really buy any cheap ping pong paddle (even if it’s not waterproof) and it’ll last longer than the board itself. Do not expect the board to last more than one season … you may get two seasons of play if you’re very lucky. I speak from experience … my family loves this game enough that we’ve gone through several sets (I can’t find a suitable substitute, though I’m going to look much harder this year), but it’s expensive to do so. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (3) Reply 13 of 14 people found the following review helpful Floating Ping Pong Table, June 15, 2008 By Paula “Scottie Lover” (Fort Valley, VA) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Floating Pool Pong Table (Toy) We bought the Floating Ping Pong table for our pool. Sometimes swimming isn’t enough. My husband and I had alot of fun playing it! It’s not easy because the paddles are bigger and the board is floating! I would recommend this for older children. Everything is sturdy, the net clamps on and you tighten it with the rods it attaches to. Amazon had the cheapest price for this item. The pool stores that send out catalogs wanted 70- something dollars for it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 8 of 9 people found the following review helpful cheaply made, December 22, 2009 By Samantha M Williams (jacksonville, fl) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Floating Pool Pong Table (Toy) The table started coming apart shortly after we put it in the pool. Both of the plastic pieces that hold the net broke very easily. We were never able to really use it because it didn’t hold up long enough. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
