Sooner or later, online shopping will be the primary mode of purchase for shoppers worldwide. It’s easy to see why. It’s convenient, hassle-free, and surprisingly much cheaper than having to shop in-store.
Due to this pivot to online shopping, sporting outlets have begun offering their services online. That includes table tennis stores.
While some players would argue that nothing beats feeling the racket in your hand before the purchase, online shopping is just so convenient.
You can just read reviews from your fellow hobbyists and use them as your guide for the purchase. Another thing to consider is your ability to compare different products by different brands. You really can’t do that inside the store.
To help you with your purchase, here are the top nine online table tennis stores as of this writing.
1. American Table Tennis
American Table Tennis is an online store for table tennis. It has been in operation since 1979. What started out as a small retail store is now one of the most popular online table tennis stores in America.
If you are interested in getting discounts, they offer sales and discounts from time to time. They also offer wholesale pricing if you have bulk orders.
They support most table tennis brands. It’s super easy to spot your preferred brand on their website. They offer free shipping for orders over $60 via priority mail shipping.
2. Table Tennis Store
Table Tennis Store is one of North America’s complete table tennis and ping pong online stores. It has a strong online presence, thanks to its straightforward name.
They offer complete table tennis items, as well as combo deals. Combo Specials are tandem items you get for a discount. This is especially helpful if you want to save money (I mean, who doesn’t?).
This company offers free shipping for items over $50 and above as long as you are located inside the continental United States. For items costing less than $50, the shipping fee will be a flat $5.
3. Ping Pong Depot
One of the first things you will notice when you go to their website is their discount offer, which is a pretty nice touch.
Ping Pong Depot offers $10 for all your purchases as long as you apply the right code. This company is from Canada. Some of their items are exclusive in Canada, while some items are only offered in the USA.
The thing I love the most about this company is their ‘Best Price Guarantee.’ If you can find the best price, they will match it.
Their confidence in their pricing should tell you about the kind of deals they offer.
4. Paddle Palace
“Everything for the table tennis player. Since 1973.”
Their slogan is a fitting description of their service. They have one of the most extensive libraries of items on this list.
What I love most about Paddle Palace are their combo specials, which offer specialized items for the kind of player that will use it. They also offer other kinds of specials. You will surely find something that will fit your needs.
Their professional items are on the pricey side, though, but that’s to be expected given the quality. Shipping is free for items over $60.
5. Mega Spin
If you are looking to build your own table tennis room, Mega Spin is one of the best places you can go.
They offer such a vast collection of ping pong items that you can stop looking elsewhere once you visit their website. You can find any table tennis equipment you would want here. They offer so many items, and in numerous brands, too.
What’s even greater is their ‘Best Price Guarantee.’ This means that if you find an item that is cheaper than theirs, they are willing to adjust their listing and sell it to you cheaper than listed.
Now, that’s the kind of deal every online store should have!
6. Dick’s Sporting Goods
I almost didn’t want to add Dick’s Sporting Goods to this list, but it’s impossible not to.
Dick’s Sporting Goods is the biggest sporting outlet in the USA. As such, it remains to be the safest bet if you want to buy generic items for the sport of your choice.
You won’t find special or niche items in here, but their inventory is enough to give you a good selection.
Dick’s Sporting Good is the tried and tested online store for many sports. That includes table tennis, too.
7. Joola USA
Joola is one of the most popular table tennis brands in the world. Think of Joola as the Nike or adidas of table tennis.
They offer all kinds of table tennis items from tables to footwear. If you need anything for your game, they will surely have it available.
The only real downside is their pricing, which is quite understandable. As with all things, quality comes at a cost. And Joola being the best in the business, prices their items according to quality.
Joola offers free shipping for items over $50.
Of course, this list won’t be complete without good ol’ Amazon.
Amazon, being the biggest e-commerce website in the USA, has the most extensive library of items on the Internet.
The only real downside is, since their items are sourced from different manufacturers, their qualities are hit-or-miss. One piece of advice is to just stick to brands you know.
Even if you don’t know anything about table tennis, you will have a great time shopping on Amazon.
9. Zero Pong
Zero Pong is an online table tennis store that only the most serious hobbyists know.
Zero Pong has been able to gather such a following because of their great offers. One such offer is their $1 shipping for rubber items.
Whether you’re a professional player or not, Zero Pong will have items fit your liking. What’s more is they offer all their items at such a discount, it makes you wonder how they can do that.
Definitely pay this website a visit and see their items for yourself.
