Does the table surface make a difference in gameplay? And before that just to check, is there more than one type of table surface used in an official competition?
I have been playing a lot at home on a Butterfly table, and recently just got active in school. I think the tables in my school are slightly smoother and I definitely feel there is a *slight* difference when I play. Is it just me or does the table surface change anything?
The table surfaces can change depending on the type of wood and the type of paint used.
It will make slight changes to the speed and bounce of the ball. I find though that with a little bit of practice on a new table it is easy to adjust.
When you first play on a new table, just hit the ball with some consistency and get the feel of it.
