Often named as the official table, Butterfly tables meet all regulations and requirements of the sponsoring organizations this table is USATT approved. The Nippon Indoor Rollaway is designed for in-home play as well as for clubs, schools, and recreation centers wanting a table built to last. Heavy-duty 2-inch square wood legs provide a long lasting solid foundation, while the steel frame and apron and strong 22mm (7/8-inch) thick top give this table stability. Tables commonly available through mass-market retailers lack the proper design and support to allow the table to hold together very long before loosening and collapsing. Nippon Rollaway features a thick top comprised of high-density chipboard. The core of the chipboard is tightly compressed while the exterior region of the top is compressed even greater. This process offers superior strength over the life of the table and is less prone to warping, scratches, chemicals and staining more than tops made of medium-density fiberboard (MDF). Chipboard offers the most consistent and truest bounce of all surfaces used in table production.
The Playback Position allows you to fold up one half of the table and use it as a backboard. This will quicken reflexes and develop hand-eye coordination. The best part of it is that it lets you focus on the game. Every professional player will tell you that practicing alone is the best way to get better at the game. When you play against someone, you focus on their shots and focus on reacting accordingly. Once there is no opponent to focus on, you concentrate on your own shots. You study your own game. You notice little mistakes that you do and understand how to make improvements. If you want to get in the zone and get better at table tennis, then this is the perfect partner.
A Nippon Rollaway purchase includes the National League net set (Butterfly’s highest quality net set). Rubber padded brackets and clamps protect your tables' surface from damage while the smaller brackets are designed to fit tables 1.75'' thick. Keep the net at the correct height easily with the adjustment pin and included net height measurer.
The undercarriage has an easy fold-and-roll system incorporating large, sturdy wheels (5-inch ball bearing casters) for easy movement. This table folds up to 73" high, 30" wide, and has a depth of 60". It also comes equipped with an effective safety mechanism to prevent unwanted opening and closing.
A nostalgic and classic table the Nippon is ideal for those that appreciate the caliber and quality of the components.
*Measure your intended playing area before ordering a table. It is recommended to have 28 feet x 13 feet (8.5mm x 4mm) as a minimum size dimension. Space restrictions can limit the strokes you can use or style of play. Regardless whether you have the perfect sized space the idea is to have fun. In the play position, the table measures 9 feet long and 5 feet wide. An additional 5 feet on each side of the table will allow comfortable distance for play. It is also a good idea to measure all doorways, hallways and stairwells that the table may encounter prior to reaching its destination.
