I'd like to know the best color for the surface of a table-tennis table?
In this case the table is coming for outdoor use (it's also played indoors during winter), where the natural white light may be bright, the grass and trees green, and so on. During winter the artificial light is much more yellow, and walls usually white.
What does experience tell about the color? Is the contrast to the white ball as good on a grey tabletop as on a blue tabletop for example?
I know the table should officially be blue/green in competitions, but can one notice a difference? Are they really better colours than eg grey when playing as a hobby?
