Table Tennis Tables
Plan drawing of a standard regulation Table Tennis | Ping Pong Table with dimensions for width and length

Table tennis tables are regulated playing surfaces designed specifically for the game of table tennis (ping-pong). Table tennis tables measure 9’ | 2.74 m long by 5’ | 1.525 m in wide. The playing surface of a ping-pong table must be set at a height of 2.5’ | 76 cm and is equipped with a center net that is 6” | 15.25 cm high and stretches 6” | 15.25 cm beyond the width of the table.

Tables can be constructed out of a variety of materials ranging from common designs using plywood and/or particle-board to more exotic variants made of concrete, metal, plastic or fiber-glass. The materiality of a table tennis table is a matter of preference, but the bounce of the ball on the surface should be uniform at a height of 9.1” | 23 cm when dropped at a height of 11.8” | 30 cm.

Boxing Ropes
Side view detail elevation of the corner of a boxing ring measuring ring and rope heights and sizes

Boxing ropes are the perimeter guides and boundaries that gave shape to the competitive space of a boxing ring used for the sport of boxing. Attached to the four posts located at each corner of the boxing ring platform, the boxing rope border is made up of four individual parallel ropes pulled in tension from each turnbuckle. Additional rope spacers are distributed evenly around each side of the ring to prevent the ropes from slacking or spreading further apart if the tension lessens. Boxing ropes are commonly made with steel cables wrapped in soft padding and an outer vinyl sleeve that is available in a variety of colors and styles depending on the venue.

Boxing ring platforms are elevated 39.375” (100 cm) above the floor. The total height of the boxing ropes above the ring floor is 52.0” (132.1 cm) leading to an overall boxing ring height of 7’ 7.375” (232.1 cm). The bottom rope is spaced 16.0” (40.6 cm) from the ring floor with the other ropes spaced evenly at 12.0” (30.5 cm) from each other. Rope thicknesses range from 1”-1.625” (2.5-4 cm).

Beer Pong Tables - Large

Large Beer Pong Tables are wider than average tables used for playing beer pong. Typically designed and used in settings that don’t require the tables to be easily transportable, large beer pong tables are often found in personal homes, college fraternities and sororities, and bars. Because of the personal nature of these larger beer pong tables they are painted and customized by their owners. Like official beer pong tables, large beer pong tables are 8’ (2.44 m) long and 27.5” (70 cm) tall with variable widths between 4’-5’ (1.2-1.5 m). The standard distance between the front two cups in a 10 cup game is roughly 65” (165 cm).

Basketball
Dimensioned drawing showing the circumference and diameter of a professional Basketball

Basketball sizes come in variations for different ages, genders, and level of play. The official NBA and competitive professional basketball is 29.5” | 74.9 cm in circumference with a diameter between 9.43”-9.51” | 24-24.2 cm. Professional basketballs must be inflated to a pressure between 7.5-8.5 PSI and cannot exceed the maximum weight of 22 ounces. When choosing a basketball, consider whether the play environment will be primarily outdoor or indoor because indoor basketballs perform best as full-grain leather constructions and outdoor basketballs are better as rubber.
