Table Tennis Tables for Offices & Student Accommodation

table tennis tables in student accomodation

Is it a desk? Is it a game table? It's both. Multi-purpose spaces are becoming more popular, particularly in offices where flexible working environments have been shown to pay off, both in terms of worker productivity, staff happiness and retention. 

Cafeterias, breakout spaces and other less conventional & more social areas are often used to attract the brightest & best of the workforce particularly when it comes to graduates who have come to expect remote working as part and parcel of student life. Read our blog on breakout areas for more on this growing trend for offices.

As the student accommodation market becomes ever more competitive, designers are also seeking to incorporate fun elements into communal spaces and table tennis tables and in more demand than ever. Of course you can always buy a standard table tennis table from sports suppliers like Dunlop or Donnay or Cornilleau (the above image shows a traditional game table in a student accommodation communal area) but there are benefits of buying a multi-purpose contract table.

Benefits of buying a contract table tennis table

  • Suitable for contract use so will last longer
  • Can be cheaper than branded table tennis tables
  • Can be ordered in custom colours to match the design scheme
  • Can be made to custom sizes to fit smaller spaces
  • Multipurpose use and can often be converted into a dining table or desks, saving space
  • Some can be used indoors & outdoors

Essentially a contract table will give you a wider choice of size and style and added flexibility of use. View the images below for an idea of the possible options when specifying a table tennis table for an office or student accommodation space.
