As you can imagine there are many different kinds of beer pong tailgate tables in the marketplace. Everything from aluminum to hardwood. Some of these are very inexpensive and some are the complete opposite. These things are pretty versatile also. They can be used for more than just tailgating. Heck you can turn these into a piece of furniture in some instances. Like, I don’t know, a table of some sorts.


This article will explain the 3 main types of beer pong tailgate tables and how much they generally cost and where you can find them. We will also touch on the different uses for these bad boys.

The 3 main types we will be talking about are:


  • Plastic Tailgate Table
  • Aluminum Tailgate Table
  • Wood Tailgate Table

What Kind of Tailgate Tables are Out There


Plastic Tailgate Tablesinexpensive plastic tailgate table


One of the main styles of tailgate tables are made of plastic. These types of tables are lightweight and easily portable. Most of them fold up to a nice compact size for easy storage and transportation.

For the most part, this style is pretty inexpensive.

These tables usually don’t come with any types of designs on them. They generally are a solid color plastic. Not a whole lot to say here as these are very basic tables.


Example

Mainstay Adjustable Folding Tailgate Table $37

Attributes:

  • Made of Plastic
  • Folds Together
  • Adjustable Heights
  • Sold as a Pair
  • Reviews: 4.5 out of 5 stars
  • Available at Walmart.com
  • Assembled Product Dimensions 40”x20”x28”

Aluminum Tailgate Tablesmetal tailgate table

Aluminum tailgate tables are probably the most popular tailgate tables out there. Let’s face it, the main reason these tables, at this size, exist is because of the popular tailgate game “beer pong.” Most of us have played some kind of a version of this game over the years. If you haven’t, check out these unofficial house party rules from BPong.com. My point is, because this game has become so popular there had to be some type of standard table. So an 8ft x 2ft table that is about 27.5” tall is the official size of a beer pong table.


So now that we have a wildly popular house party/tailgate game that requires a table, we now have a new product under tailgating… tailgate tables. What once was your beer pong table at your house has now doubled in function. It is now the table you take to the game to set up your buffet of chicken wings, potato salad and baked beans after you get a couple of pong games in.


These tables are middle of the road as far as price goes. They are very easy to move around and generally fold up. Most of them come with a design on the top and some are customizable. There is a competitive sport of Beer Pong and these aluminum tables are the ones used for the tournaments.


Example

BPong Beer Pong Table- White 8ft Aluminum $119

Attributes:

  • Official table of World Series of Beer Pong
  • 8ft x 2ft x 27.5”
  • Made of aluminum
  • Folds up for easy storage
  • Weighs about 21 lbs

Wood Beer Pong Tailgate Tables

Just like any other industry there is a top of the line premium product. There is no difference in the beer pong tailgate table world. From everything that I’ve seen so far the wood tailgate tables are by far the highest of quality. And just like anything else, the higher the quality the higher the ticket price. The cool thing with these is that they are mostly customizable. They are generally made using high grade plywood for the tops and solid wood for the frames. These wood beer pong tailgate tables are very sturdy and will last much longer than the aluminum or the plastic. The downside is they are a bit bulkier and heavy to carry even though most still fold up. If you are looking for a full custom graphic that covers the entire table check out Slick Woody’s Tailgate Tables. They definitely won’t disappoint.
