    Outdoor Ping Pong, or other ideas?

    Well, we're trying top spend more time at home and it's time to get the backyard oasis in order. I did a search, but didn't see anything on ping pong tables. I can Google models, but if you have one you like that will help. I as much interested in how you set it up, landscaping under/around it, etc.

    We're taking down a swing set, so the area I have is 36 feet long (fence to the house) and width is maybe 25 feet.

    Open to other outdoor rec ideas as well. As far as a table, it would be out there year round. We have no storage, so a cover will have to do.

    Thanks

    Oh my gosh! Check out Pinterest for outdoor games. They have some of the cutest things folks have built.

    I looked into these when designing our pool space. We didn't go with one but they were fun to look at. Generally be prepared for sticker shock though (for concrete purchased ones). The concrete ones are lifetime pieces of furniture to hand down to kids. The last link is to a game variety versus furniture. Depends on the vibe you are going for...and budget of course.

    Or you can make your own...

    When Skippy and I lived in a little German village, every park had outdoor cement ping pong/table tennis tables. Lots of fun!

    My son's workplace has a couple in their office space and they get quite competitive games going on. So its a game that seems to last for generations
