This table top arrived promptly and was well protected in its packaging, which took a lot of effort to remove.
The two pieces both have a cutaway portion at the central end where they meet (one on top and one below). There are also three metal rods in one which go into three holes in the other. The rods and holes aren't lined up accurately so the two pieces aren't quite level, but it hasn't interfered with our enjoyment.
The table sections have small cut-aways at the sides of the central ends to accommodate the specially shaped net which was supplied with the set. That net, and the bats supplied are very small. Even my ten year old struggled to hold them. Fortunately we already had a proper net and bats. By cutting some pieces of the Medium Density Fibreboard which was part of the packaging and placing small pieces in the cut-aways and larger pieces below, I can attach our clamp-on style net easily and we've had some great games.
Now all we need is a bigger living room!
