Overview of JOOLA Rally TL 700 (JOOLA Motion 25)

Features of JOOLA Rally TL table tennis table

JOOLA Rally TL 700 (JOOLA Motion 25) has the thickest tabletop in the Rally series that gives the pressure of a competition-level table tennis table. You also have the option to go for a lighter version for your home or office with a 15 mm or 18 mm tabletop.

25 mm (1”) Tabletop

JOOLA Rally TL 700 has a 25 mm MDF (Medium-density fiberboard) charcoal tabletop with a multi-layer painted surface for a good and uniform bounce of the ball. The smooth MDF outer surface is finally silkscreen painted to bring precision to the quality of the surface for your ultimate pleasure.

The tabletop is supported by a strong 50 mm x 50 mm steel frame for a solid base that prevents the tabletop from sagging for years to come.

Separate Table Halves

This full-size ping pong table can be separated into two equal halves that have automatic folded 1.5” powder-coated steel legs and eight 3” caster wheels. The table halves can be nested together to a very compact shape that can be easily glided to the desired location with the help of caster wheels. 

Each leg has a rubber leveler that can be manually adjusted by a clockwise or anti-clockwise rotation to level the playing surface. Also, the provision of rubber at the bottom of the leg keeps your floor free from scratch.

Minimum Assembly Time

One hectic task that people are worried about is assembling the segmented parts of a newly received ping pong table. To relieve you from anxiety, this table comes with a 95% preassembled condition. You have to only fix the caster wheels with legs by only bolting 8 nuts.
