Separate Halves

The table can be separated into two halves, which are indeed independent square tables that are free-standing and can be used in different ways. As the table comes as two separate halves, they are easy to store and transport and these two halves also make the table lightweight and easy to carry. The separate halves can be used as a multipurpose table for crafts, to play poker or any board games. Unlike other ping pong tables that fold into two halves and nest into each other, the Joola Midsize table can be separated into two halves for storage. The dimensions of the independent halves are about 36 inches in length x 36 inches in breadth and the thickness is 1.8 inches. You can also fold the legs of these tables to store them securely in the closet or under the bed. 

Assembly

Both the halves of the table come 100% pre-assembled with folding legs that are also pre-connected with the table halves. You only have to unfold the legs and attach the net, to start playing in seconds. Though it doesn’t require any assembly, it is important to inspect the table thoroughly the moment it arrives. Especially for the screws and clamps that connect the net post. Tables that are delivered defective can be replaced easily with Joola within the warranty period

Net and Posts with the Table

Though the Joola is a midsize table, it still comes with net and posts that attach with the tabletop easily with the help of a classic screw and clamps. The net locks itself into the holes at the top of the table. The trick is to push the net poles down the holes to help the, lock into their place, and keep the net solid and stable. The net and posts are fine for casual games and recreational players. 

Cost
