All through my life I've been an intermittent ping pong player. I played quite a bit in my youth, and in later years my mom had a table in her garage and I'd play at family gatherings, etc. Nothing hugely competitive, just family ping pong, but still serious at times.
I wanted a table for our new house and determined that an indoor/outdoor table would work best. I also wanted a table that would withstand the rigors of rambunctious play. This table perfectly fits the bill.
First of all, if I didn't know it was all-weather I wouldn't be able to tell the difference in the table bounce - it just feels like a ping pong table. Second, this table is solidly built and feels like it will stand up to use and abuse for many years. Third, it's easy to set up, take down, and move.
Assembly is a bit of a chore, but it's a one-time thing, and then it's nothing but fun. Highly recommended.
