The problem with table tennis is that it's not much fun if you have a crowd of people. Sure you can double up like you do in regular tennis, but wouldn't it be more fun if you were all competing against each other? This four player set lets the whole party compete for king of the hill.
To be honest, with no net and those weird target holes in the middle of the table, the game owes as much to mini golf as it does to ping pong. Those sloping surfaces don't help to make things any easier.
The guys in the picture look they're missing their fourth player, so perhaps they should have stuck with three player ping pong.
The quad table tennis set will be available later this month from Hammacher Schlemmer for $250.
