On PingPongAcademy.org, we’ve collected the best ping pong-related products the market has to offer. Simply choose the category you’re interested in, and rest assured our experts have included the most remarkable models available today. Your shopping search has never been easier!

How we do it

First, we do a market research. For each product type, our team of experts makes a list of essential features to pay attention to in the first place. With these features in mind, we scour the market for the bestselling, most trustworthy brands as well as those less recognizable but promising ones.

Next, we make a list of the products which correspond to our criteria best. Each one has high customer rating and positive buyers’ feedback.

All of the products go directly to our testing department. There, professional ping pong players and experienced hobbyists put them to the test. They make a report for each of them, highlighting their pros and cons and giving them a score based on the findings.

After that, the research results are presented in a form of a comprehensive, easy-to-read text, thanks to our team of authors and editors. The final step is to make the article visually appealing – that’s the task of our content managers and photographer.
