Cornilleau Table Tennis Tables

With an ever increasing number of brands of table tennis tables appearing on the market, including more and more tables produced in China, below are some of Cornilleau’s major ‘plus points’ to help you advise customers and explain the benefits of purchasing a Cornilleau table tennis table.

Table Tennis Expert?

For some brands, table tennis is merely an add-on product. Cornilleau, however, only make table tennis tables and do not manufacture tables for sale under any brand other than Cornilleau and Tectonic. They have 40 years of experience in the design and manufacture of table tennis tables.

Wide Product Range & Innovation

The breadth of Cornilleau’s range of table tennis tables means there is something to suit all playing requirements and all budgets. In the Cornilleau range, as the tables get more expensive, the playing surfaces gets thicker (for a better bounce), the legs get sturdier, the frames get heavier, the wheels have brakes, plus you get additional features such as a MAT top (on outdoor tables) or a SKIL Top (on indoor tables). The tables higher up in the range also have nifty extras such as corner protection pads, ball dispensers, retractable nets, adjustable leg height and a transport handle.

Outdoor (Weatherproof) Tables

Some brands advertise their tables as indoor/outdoor models but the small print states the table must NOT be stored outdoors! All Cornilleau and Tectonic outdoor tables are resistant to sun, rain, snow and frost and can be left safely outside all year round without any risk of deterioration, with or without a cover. On Cornilleau tables, anti-corrosion materials are used on all parts to avoid rusting. See ‘Guarantee’ details below.

Playing Surface

Cornilleau use high density chipboard in the manufacture of all their indoor tables. Chinese tables are made using MDF which is far more fragile and can be deformed easily. Cornilleau’s outdoor tables are manufactured using resin laminate, which is not only completelyweatherproof but is also resistant to bat blows, unlike tables with an aluminium top which will dent. The tops on Cornilleau tables are painted by a fully automated painting process using ultra violet to harden the paint giving a regular and quality finish. Brands using a high number of layers of paint are hand painted which means the colour will be less regular and there is a risk of particles getting into the surface during the painting process.

EN Compliance

Due to the risk of a child getting between the panels of the table when it is folded, and following on from a number of incidents, a European Safety Standard for table tennis tables was introduced in March 2005. This is the EU norm EN 14468-1 and ALL Cornilleau and Tectonic tables conform to this regulation. Be aware that a number of tables on sale from other brands do NOT comply with this regulation.


It is a fact that Cornilleau tables are the safest on the market. The patented DSI system used on Cornilleau brand tables has 16 locking points ensuring the table is fully locked in playing and storage positions for complete child safety. Plus, if a table is opened and the handle released, the top will automatically lock at 65° avoiding any risk of an accident.


The Cornilleau guarantee is amongst the best available backed up by a company which is the Europeanleader in table tennis tables. Cornilleau guarantee their tables against manufacturing defects for 3 years (2 years for Tectonic tables) and this guarantee is extended to 10 years for the playing surface on outdoor tables (3 years for Tectonic tables). As Cornilleau’s UK importer, all warranty queries are handled quickly and efficiently here in the UK and replacement parts can be despatched in a timely way for maximum customer satisfaction.

Playback Facility

Not all tables have a playback facility for solo practice. This means that one person cannot play or practise alone limiting the extent to which a table can be used. All Cornilleau Sport and Tectonic tables have a playback facility and are suitable for solo practice.
