The Stiga (pronounced Steega) Baja T8562w is a mid-level outdoor table from an established brand.

So let's take a closer look at all aspects of this table so that you can decide whether the Baja T8562w is the right table for you.

You may also want to read my article explaining how to choose the right table tennis table for you. I recommend that you don't buy ANY table tennis table until you've read it.

Note: Very few tables have rackets (also known as paddles or bats) and balls supplied as standard, so you'll need to check with your supplier if you need them.

Here's the table in the "playback" position...

When you're erecting or storing this table, each half of the playing surface independently tilts into an upright position.

This feature, which is present on many tables, enables the table to be used by one person by using the upright section of the table as an opponent.

The total measurements for this table in the playback position are:

  • Height: 62 inches
  • Width: 60 inches
  • Depth: 68 inches

Here's a close up of the corner of the table...

The corners of a table can be hazardous in certain situations, and this picture shows how the corner of this table is protected.

This is a useful safety feature.

This table has a heavy-duty welded steel apron and undercarriage underneath the playing surface. This helps support the playing surface and reduce the opportunity for the playing surface to warp easily.

Here's a close up of the type of wheels used for this table...

They are 5 inch all-terrain, double wheels with locks.

In addition to the centre section which has 8 five-inch all-terrain wheels with locks, the four corner legs are as shown here.

These legs are adjustable so if you have an uneven floor, you can adjust the legs to ensure that the table is level.

Here's a close up of the type of net which is supplied with this table...

The ITTF rules state that the length of the net must be 6 feet, and the height must be 6 inches. It must also be adjustable.

The net supplied with this table does meet those requirements, but it's a basic integrated pivoting, all-weather net and post set.

This is suitable for recreational play, but you may want to upgrade it at a later date.

Who is this Stiga Baja T8562w Outdoor Table Tennis Table for?

This table is primarily intended for light outdoor use at home.

You could also use it in an unheated garage or any indoor space where the temperature fluctuates.

Ideally, you would assemble the table and leave it permanently erected.

This table is designed for outdoor use so it should be able to withstand being left permanently outdoors, although you may want to buy a cover.

If you want an outdoor table for light home use, this would be a suitable choice.

This table does not have a playing surface made of wood, so it cannot be an "authorised" ITTF table. However, the aluminum composite top and heavy-duty galvanized welded steel undercarriage is what's required for an outdoor table.
