excellent Unimpaired enjoyment. Competition-like: sharp edges, completely smooth surface, no damage. Can be played for a whole day without any stroke being affected by impurities of the table.
good Almost undisturbed enjoyment. Smoothness slightly impaired globally or a few very localized damages. Less than 1 stroke per 11-point match affected.
intermediate Enjoyment moderately disturbed. Partly damaged edges, locally unsmooth surface, and/or moderately damaged net. Between 1 and 10 strokes per 11-point match are altered.
bad Enjoyment considerably curbed. Substantial damage affects almost each rally.

  • Outcome of the game is almost random due to the condition of the table.
  • Most rallies are ended prematurely due to the condition of the table.
