This review is from: Kettler Match 5.0 Indoor Table Tennis Table (Blue Top) (Sports) I needed to buy a tennis table for my office. My requirements: 1. Sturdy: Over 100 employees regularly using the table2. Thick top: Makes for better game play3. Easy to move around: we need to be able to shove it in a closet for important meetings4. Affordable This table met all of them! My only issue was assembly: it said it would take 2 people 2 hours to assemble and that’s just not true. We had 5 people in and out over the course of 4 hours putting this thing together. AND it was missing one small piece for the wheels, but it ended up being fine. CHECK FOR ALL OF THE PARTS and USE THE RULER in the instruction booklet. The instructions get a little funky sometimes too, so just be extra careful. All in all, though, once this bad boy was put together, it’s been a dream table. We love it. And for the price? Seriously, I don’t know if you can beat it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 3 of 3 people found the following review helpful Incompetent, February 22, 2013 By Mark P – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Kettler Match 5.0 Indoor Table Tennis Table (Blue Top) (Sports) The table would actually be a 4-5 star quality, but be prepared to waste a lot of time putting it together due to the incompetence of the manufacturers. The instruction booklet is almost useless and there is no way anyone could put this table together just by reading the pathetic instructions. I had to search YouTube but finally found video instructions from the US distributor but even those are pathetic, they don’t give a wide enough view to see which way the angles face, so you can’t tell if you are doing it right. Then for the final insult, there were bolts, nuts, washers and spacers missing from the packing. I had to make 4 trips to the hardware store to find stuff that was missing from packs that are supposedly counted. The problem is that you don’t know what’s missing until you get to the next section because you can only do one section at a time. When you don’t have the piece you need, it’s back to the hardware store. This could be an easy job if all the parts were packed together with a comprehensive assembly DVD. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful Kettler Match 5.0 Assembly Marathon, August 30, 2011 By SC Jones “SC” (Dallas, TX) – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) This review is from: Kettler Match 5.0 Indoor Table Tennis Table (Blue Top) (Sports) Love the table… after surviving the construction! Now that the 3 hour assembly marathon is a past memory, we’re really enjoying this table… it’s easy for one person to set up, or fold up, and it plays really well. Could be a bit sturdier, but let’s face it… a ping-pong ball doesn’t require much stability from the table. The packaging was really well done… even though the box looked BAD… like a fork lift had ripped into it several times, there was no damage to the table! The two table pieces were packed face-to-face with a protective film on both that was really fun to peel off. There was also a flat plastic protective strip all around the edges of those table pieces to prevent damage. All the pieces were found OK, but, really, 3 hours to put together a > 100 piece ping-pong table, based mostly on graphical instructions, is a bit much. Given the same choices, would I do it again? Hmmmm… not sure. The Kettler brand, manufactured in Germany, were definitely the major decision factors. I’ve taken one star off for the challenging assembly required. Other than that, we’re really happy with a quality table. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comments (2) Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
