Butterfly TW24B Review – Outdoor Playback Rollaway Table Tennis Table
There are two types of tennis tables that you can choose from, one is the indoors and the other one is the outdoors. Depending on your need and requirement – you can choose the table accordingly.

This is why I opted for the Outdoor Playback Rollaway, and I found it different from all the other outdoor tables that I have ever played on.
Now the table has crossed a year, and it’s still going strong. Outdoor tables are meant to remain outdoors only, and the one that I am using has been exposed to rain, snow as it was outdoors all the year around.
