Featured Brand: Cornilleau
French table tennis brand Cornilleau was found in 1946 by Emile Cornilleau. The company originally started out as a joinery and woodworking shop but evolved as leisure activities became an increasingly important part of French people’s lives. In 1969, a department store in Paris asked the company if it could begin manufacturing ping pong tables. The family business agreed and created 3 prototypes.
This began the brand’s journey to bec oming the premier table tennis table manufacturer. As the times changed, Cornilleau’s methods changed with them. Pierre Cornilleau, son of Emile, made the decision in 1988 to produce an affordable outdoor ping pong table using high pressure laminate and aimed at the general public. Its affordability led to table tennis becoming a true outdoor sport, accessible to anyone who wanted to play.
In 1995, the brand had to adapt again, as backyard spaces remained small and unable to accommodate large furniture and game tables. Cornilleau designed the compact table, one that could be folded up and put away when not in use. Years later, this design became the standard due to its improved safety and comfort of use.
The company has continued to develop new products and has since expanded their market well outside of France. This makes them one of few elite French brands whose expertise and success have expanded beyond their home country.
Cornilleau offers a variety of models to choose from to suit your needs. All their tables come with a ten-year warranty and feature the company’s excellent quality, commercial-grade materials, and innovative design. Safety features include locking wheels and a 16-point locking mechanism that keeps the table from moving when in use. Their tables are easy to setup, making it safe for everyone in the family to set up the table themselves.
Their tables can withstand the harshest of outdoor elements, making them a popular purchase for resorts worldwide. Their legs are also heigh adjustable so they can be properly leveled on uneven terrain and are made of sturdy materials. Large wheels allow for anyone to maneuver the ping pong table over whatever terrain they face.
Cornilleau tables also feature a phenolic playfield, which offers a truer bounce sure to delight all players. Ball dispensers make it easy to store everything needed to play, with point counters conveniently located so you don’t need to worry about losing track of your score. Other models also include cup holders and accessory holders for convenience.
