Ledge Lounger Outdoor Pingpong Table
Durable and stable, yes, but throw in a little design attitude and it’s a win for everyone. Made of durable polyethylene, the manufacturer is all-pro when it comes to form and function (and it sells other outdoor games, too). Score style points with multiple color options for the table, net and paddles (visit ledgelounger.com/products/ping-pong to see all the choices). Note that the compact table is slightly smaller than regulation size — all the better for family fun. Price includes two paddles, four balls and net.
