Kettler Champ 5.0 Outdoor Table Tennis Table created by Kettler Sports and fabricated in Germany is made to withstand all types of weather. Thus, it’s a table that answers one of the greatest demands of ping pong fans all over the world.
It’s the ultimate weather resistance that’s been missing from so many otherwise good models. Built with high safety standards in mind, this table is not only resistant, but can also be maneuvered by anyone.
Ultimate Resistance to Bad Weather
The built and especially the surface in itself are top of the game, which gives them an unrivaled weatherproof quality. The special 7/8in surface is resistant to all types of weather, no matter how harsh.
You may keep this table outdoors without any worries – you don’t need to fold it back and store it away as soon as the weather turns bad. Just leave it there and come back to play next time as you have the chance.
The surface is coated with sealed aluminum composite and the underside features the ALU-TEC Climate control technology. The manufacturer focused so much on the weatherproof aspect because such items are usually damaged by the weather variations.
These lead to contractions and expansion, which destroy the materials and the joint spots with time. Issues like these leave the table unusable.
Besides all this, there is aluminum tubing inside the edges and aprons on top. This doesn’t let the table warp, but helps it stay in a great condition for a very long time. The very even and smooth playing surface has a top coat that doesn’t glare.
The colors will not fade, because the outer layer is UV coated. Note that all parts are resistant to corrosion because they are galvanized or coated accordingly.
Strong Yet Flexible Built

The adjustable size makes it appropriate even for children/teenager use. Thanks to the levelers, you can adjust the legs to the desired height. You can fold the table safely, the mechanism is fairly easy to understand and use. It folds smoothly so it’s a lot less risky when maneuvered.
Besides, it is easy to store when folded, with a shape so compact. The Outdoor Kettler Champ 5.0 doesn’t open or close on its own, but only when the user intends to. It’s a patented system that ensures this.
