Milliard Midsize Table Tennis Table Review
Ping Pong table Review: 4.5 stars out of 5
The Milliard Midsize Table is a brand new miniature table tennis table from Milliard. At roughly two-thirds the size of a regulation table tennis table, it's a portable and light alternative that still offers a really good playing experience for a table of this size.
- NO ASSEMBLY - Just fold open the legs on the table tennis table, latch the two halves together and you are ready to play!
- Midsize table tennis set includes net, paddles and balls, just setup and start playing!
- EXTRA Reinforced legs, the fold up table tennis will not wobble or collapse. Rubber grips on the bottom.
- Space saving design, each half separates for easy storage, making a portable ping pong table
- Not ITTF approved
The Milliard Midsize Table is very well built. It features two folding cross braces that keep the table rigid so that it stays stable during play. This is a nice improvement over other popular portable tables as they tend to have only one brace on each half. The reinforced steel legs are also of high build quality and come with floor-saving rubber feet that prevent scratches. We thought the pressed wood playing surface plays fine but the lime green paint scratches pretty easily. This isn't a huge deal and doesn't really affect the playing experience but it does give the table more of a low-quality look after a fair amount of use. It should be obvious but it's important to call out that the Milliard Midsize is not regulation size and therefore it is not ITTF approved for tournament play.
The assembly process of the Milliard Midsize Table is super easy, and because it's relatively light and portable, it can actually be done by one person. The table halves come well packed and padded in the delivery box. The process just involves pulling each table half out of the box, unfolding the legs, locking the cross beams and then latching the table halves together. Once latched together, simply attach the net poles and you are ready to play. The whole process takes only 5 minutes.
Compared to the Joola Midsize
The Milliard Midsize is similar in many ways to the Joola Midsize Table. The key differences are price, table stability and the quality of playing surface. In our opinion, the Milliard Midsize has a better frame but not as good of a playing surface as the Joola. The more heavy duty Milliard frame is more stable and just as easy to fold up and put away. However, the lime green playing surface looks cheaper and scratches more easily when compared to the Joola. The Milliard Midsize is significantly cheaper though and comes with two paddles and three balls, unlike the Joola table. It's also important to note that the Milliard Midsize is about 4 inches wider (40 inches vs 36 inches) than the Joola Midsize which makes it easier to play doubles.
Overall, we really like the Milliard Midsize. We found it to be a really good, budget table tennis table that is portable and plays well. The only downside for us was how easily the playing surface can be scratched. When considering the quality of the frame, portability and how good the price of this table is, we think the Milliard Midsize is still worth buying. We also love that it comes with paddles and balls, this makes it a perfect table for beginners and recreational players that want everything to get started in one affordable package.
