The Joola Conversion Top is a full-sized table tennis conversion top built by one of the worldwide leaders in table tennis equipment: Joola. As an official sponsor of the US National Table Tennis Team, Joola is widely known for building high-performance and affordable table tennis products with quality materials.

This conversion top is a good example of Joola’s commitment to quality as it’s built with the same care and attention to detail as Joola’s standard free-standing tables. The Joola Conversion Top is a good choice for those looking to save space by converting a pool table to a table tennis playing surface.

MDF Table Top

The Joola Table Tennis Conversion Top is constructed with a 15mm or 5/8-inch thick MDF top that rivals many mid-range free-standing tables. The MDF material is resistant to cracking and warping (when used inside) and will provide a consistent bounce just like a regular free-standing table tennis table. The top is made up of two separate table halves that can be moved and stored independently to make it much easier to set up and take down. While each half is very heavy, an average adult should be able to lift it without too much strain.

Foam Padding

One of the best features of the Joola Conversion Top is the foam padding underneath the top. Unlike many other conversion tops, the Joola Conversion Top has a soft EVA foam padding that runs along the underside of the top. This padding layer provides a soft cushion that will prevent damage to your billiards table while at the same time allowing the top to lock into place. Sudden movements or the sliding of the top over the felt surface of a pool table will not result in scratches or tears in the surface. This feature makes the Joola Conversion Top a good choice for those that often want to switch between playing pool or ping pong.

Assembly

Assembling the Joola Conversion Top is extremely easy and shouldn’t take more than 5-10 minutes. The hardest part of the process is simply lifting the moving the 120-pound box. After removing the top from the box, simply place both table halves on your billiards table (we recommend leaving your pool table cover on). Attach each table half in the center and then bolt on the net and post set. The net set comes with adjustable feet that allow for a tight connection with the top.

Conclusion

The Joola Conversion Top is an affordable and high-quality pool table conversion top that is a smart buy for those wanting a ping pong experience without giving up the space for a full free-standing ping pong table. Just like Joola’s other products, the Joola Conversion Top delivers a quality playing experience that will last a long time. While it should go without saying, the Joola Conversion top does not deliver a tournament-quality playing experience. No conversion top will. But for those who want the option to easily convert their pool table for table tennis any time they want, the Joola Conversion table is a great option.
