To some, table tennis is nothing but a sport that needs to be practiced indoors! But friends what about a change! Or rather what about opting for outdoor table tennis…great idea isn’t it? Yes, the outdoor form of the game is also gaining prominence with time. Let’s find out how.
In recent times, things have changed…now you will find people equally interested in outdoor table tennis as they used to share in indoor table tennis. But delving deeper into this game, you will find that there is indeed a huge difference between outdoor and indoor table tennis. For instance, while playing table tennis indoors, you can manage the environment easily…there’s isn’t any fear of wind affecting the swing of the ball and you can manage the lights as well. However, while playing outdoor table tennis, you need to adjust your shots by taking into consideration the force of the wind, the amount of sunlight and so and so forth. Therefore, to some extent it is a difficult task in comparison to indoor table tennis. In fact, some suggest that playing it outdoor is a viable option during summer. Why? Well, for the simple reason that if you go for this in some other season, then the winds may affect your sport all the more adversely, thereby bring your sport to a halt…I hope you don’t want this to happen!
While opting for this game, ensure setting the table on an even and concrete surface. Playing it on grass is good but then grasses are likely to be uneven, thereby disrupting your game on the whole! When it comes to outdoor table tennis, try choosing a table that has wheels on either of its legs. It is because these tables last for a prolonged period of time and are resistant towards harsh outdoor environment as well. Well, these were couple of things that you need to take into consideration while opting for outdoor table tennis.
