That green wooden folding table may get the job done if you're looking for a lazy volley in your parents' basement, but those who take their table tennis seriously (meaning those who don't refer to it as ping-pong) turn to Stiga. That even includes the world-renowned Swedish National Table Tennis Team, which signed a 10-year pact that will outfit the world champions in Stiga's gear. Already sitting at the pinnacle of blade production (again, they're not paddles) for nearly seven decades, Stiga has created the ultimate table. Handcrafted in Germany, the Showcourt's 30mm-thick top is sturdy, stable, and exceptionally even for consistent, blindingly fast game play. But the smash hit for us is the LED lights on the sexy curved legs with three levels of brightness for illuminating whatever play area you choose. [$20,000; stigatabletennis.com]
