Table Tennis Accessories

Table Tennis Accessories 1) Puma's table tennis collaboration with design team Aruliden netted this award-winning packaging for paddle and balls. It prompted us to round-up similarly stylish accessories for the serious or social player.

2) Jonathan Adler brings preppy chic to the basement with this 100% wool blue chevron needlepoint paddle cover. $72 USD, including paddle.

3) Fashion designer Trina Turk collaborated with Alice Supply Co for a limited edition paddle set in her signature graphic pattern. $54 buys you two paddles and four balls.

4) Battle your opponents in style with a Jack Spade camo-print paddle cover. Holds two paddles and three balls. Alas, you'll have to round one up on eBay, as the cover is not current available at retail.

Puma x Aruliden BLACKOUT Table Tennis Table

Fall is that transitional season of wool sweaters and first frost mixed with unexpected days of Indian summer. Surfing has ended (for all but the intrepid) and we eagerly wait the accumulation of snowflakes, signaling the start of ski season. Don't sit idly by squandering that hard-won summer body. Now is a perfect time to have a go at an indoor sport, like table tennis. Puma x Aruliden Blackout Table TennisPuma x Aruliden Blackout Table Tennis

We guarantee you'll look swinging with Puma's BLACKOUT table in your space. Designed by New York–based Aruliden, the firm teamed up with the athletic brand to create products, strategy and marketing around the rec room pastime, effectively elevating it to penthouse status. The overall graphic impact, marked by the distinctive silhouette, matte-black finish and angular black ash wood legs, lends sophistication to the table and makes for a striking conversation piece. Available at The Conran Shop, $1,900.

For another spin on the game, see Aruliden's first table design, CHALK, under the Puma collaboration (pictured below).
