The JOOLA Rally TL 300 has a 5/8” inch thick top, the same thickness as the best selling JOOLA Inside Table tennis table. This table thickness is normal for tables in this price range and you can relatively expect a 5/8" table-top thickness from tables costing $400-$700, a 3/4" table-top thickness from tables cost $700-$1000 and a tournament grade thickness of 1" from tables over $1000. Overall, this one of the best Table Tennis tables one can purchase for under $500.

Extra Features

What separates the JOOLA Rally TL 300 from the rest of the tables are the added amenities such as the corner ball holders and the magnetic scoring device. While these things don’t have a large impact on the quality of the table itself, it does make the table more attractive for younger children and teens who love the added characteristics and perks. The table also has a play-back mode where you set one side of the Ping Pong table vertical so players can practice against themselves, rebounding shots off the other side of the table.

Assembly

Not only is this table cheap, it’s easy to assemble as well. After receiving the package, it should take less than 20 minutes to completely assemble the table into perfect playing condition. That’s a lot better than some of the other tables that can take up to five or six hours to assemble. It’s easy to fold and store as well and can be used quite conveniently as two free standing tables for yard sales or large family gatherings.

Conclusion

Overall, it’s a great recreational Table tennis table. It’s cheap, it provides a good enough playing surface that recreational players and children can still enjoy a competitive match, it’s easy to assemble and store, it doesn’t break easily, and most importantly it’s safe for children. I would definitely recommend this table for anyone considering purchasing a Table tennis table, especially if you are looking for an appropriate table for children.

Other tables in the similar price range that I would suggest reviewing before making a final decision are the JOOLA Inside Table tennis table and the Stiga STS 185 Table tennis table.
