Ping Pong Table Skirt

Have you ever gotten fed up with reaching under your ping pong table for all of those stray balls after a hard practice with your Newgy table tennis robot? Here is a great, affordable solution that will give your table a really professional feel.

Supplies:

  • Fabric of your choice (approximately 28' x 30")
  • Staple gun with short staples and/or Velcro


Instructions for stapling:

  • NOTICE: Stapling into your table with staples that are only about as long as half of the thickness of your table top will not damage the playing surface but may void any warrantee on your table.
  • Begin at mid-table and staple the top corner of your fabric to the underside of the table.
  • Continue stapling the fabric around the perimeter of the table every 6 inches or so, making sure that the fabric is pulled tight. (Make sure to pull especially tight when stapling around corners to get a sharp look.)
  • When you come back to where you started to may want to Velcro shut the opening between the 2 ends of fabric.


Instructions for Velcro:

  • Begin at mid-table and Velcro the top corner of your fabric to the underside of the table.
  • Continue Velcro-ing the fabric around the perimeter of the table every 4 inches or so, making sure that the fabric is pulled tight. (Make sure to pull especially tight when stapling around corners to get a sharp look.)
  • When you come back to where you started, you may want to Velcro shut the opening between the 2 ends of fabric.


Total Cost: Approximately $20 (Depending on fabric used)

Viola! Now you have yourself a very professional-looking ping pong table with a skirt, which will keep balls from collecting under it and even doubles as a great place to store equipment like your table tennis robot!
