https://camera-adaptor.support.playstation.com/en-gb This should work.
I did it a while back so I apologise if I get the details wrong. It was on the Sony PlayStation website (I think) and you had to enter the code number of your vr set (on the back of the black box) and your name and address and they send you out a ps5 adapter free of charge. The website automatically checks the vr set code to authenticate it so you can't just stick in a load of random numbers.
How do you claim the adaptor

Stiga Royal 5-Star Table Tennis Pro Carbon Ping Pong Bat, Black/Red - £52.60 @ Amazon£52.60£99.9047% off Free P&P FreeAmazon Deals
I have been keeping an eye on this for quite awhile. I missed the last price drop. At 52.60£ this is the lowest it has been so far. I wouldn't recommend this bat for beginners but … Read more
Your offensive classic may feel slower due to this bat being Off+ rated while the OC is rated Off-. However, you can easily use rubbers to compensate for speed while retaining the excellent feeling and control from the Offensive Classic. If you do want to switch to a carbon blade from your OC, I suggest an innerforce-style blade to start with as they retain a good amount of feeling due to the carbon layers being closer to the core. There are many many good options out there without paying Butterfly prices so a lot will then depend on personal preference, playing style, and level of ability. What are you looking for in terms of playing characteristics? More flexibility? More control? More speed?
Your Xiom is several leagues better than this. Keep your Xiom close.
I have Stiga Offensive Classic CR Non-WRB FL, how does this compare?
Been out of the game a long while. Currently have a Xiom Stradivarius - how would this compare? Same level of quality?
I remember as a kid they had these concrete table tennis tables in the local park, and we'd take our bats and balls. Happy days...

20" 3 in 1 Game Table (Football/Air Hockey/Table Tennis) for 20.79 delivered @ ebay / rphomeessentials£20.79£23.9513% off Free P&P FreeeBay Deals
Got this from Smyth's Toys last year. The table football is excellent. It's just a bit bigger than size of A3 piece of paper for comparison. It's great as a nice table top game. However the other two games are worthless, table tennis and air hockey just don't work at that size. I still recommend for that price, but just be aware it's more like a 1 in 3 and not a 3 in 1 set.
Maybe good for a toddler but way too Tiny.
Good find but be warned that this is tiny. I bought something similar last December and the table tennis, etc. Is almost impossible to play unless you bounce it almost straight down. The air hockey is also tricky as you can hit it and your hands is almost on the other goal 😁
Yes Wickes and Travis sell DIY ones for £30 (gets you 10 bags of concrete and you can mix one up yourself). (y) (lol)
Thank you! Just ordered
If you live in the North East does it come with a wind breaker, or Manchester a rain cover?
Got this one from Argos a few years back. Solid aluminium top and survives anything the weather can throw at it. Stored upright outside for 2 winters now and still like new
I had one of the Butterfly tables from Costco last year but had numerous issues with table warping and the legs seperating from the back of the table as the screws used to reinforce the glue were not long enough. Good point is that costco refunded after a few months of waiting for Butterfly failing to do any customer service. I've now got a Cornilleau and the quality and build assembly process is just so much better.
“Bat build” just sounds like something Batman would say XD That’s cool though. Thanks for sharing a small insight into your life :)
Zing! (ninja) Definitely got me XD (I was though cos I was working out bat build ideas for a couple of customers as my side hustle so very much had ping pong on my mind last night - just not in terms of playing though!)
Thanks (y) I thought so too! If it was anyone but the OP I might have left it :p (lol)
Appears like a rebranded "MightyMast" with mixed reviews. https://www.costco.co.uk/Toys-Baby-Child/Indoor-Games/Games-Table-Accessories/MightyMast-Leisure-Revolver-7ft-3-in-1-Multigames-Table/p/176028 Cold from me due to seemingly poor quality.
Mate... I would love this
Well made then 😁 (y)
140 kg 😳
Same here, would be great in the garden when summer arrives,and mates are allowed round for a couple of beers again, but although there's room in my garage it gets a bit damp over winter so wouldn't want to risk spoiling it. Voted hot in any case as it's a lot better size than the smaller cheaper Chad valley etc versions you can get.
Butterfly still are :D . They released a rubber series in 2008 that's dominated competitive play for years - Tenergy. The other Japanese brand you refer to is almost certainly Nittaku
This post brings back a lot of memories. I was part of my school and college team in the 80s with Butterfly being the biggest name and aspirational brand for equipment. There was another Japanese brand (can't remember) that was equally expensive and then there was Stiga.
I've assembled and sold a build with this blade before. It's got great craftmanship for the price. Would work really well with a wide range of modern offensive rubbers including the Xiom Vega X or Sanwei Gear Hyper or even those from slightly older generations like 729 cream transcend
Going to give it a try. Thanks for posting. Playing table tennis outdoors has been keeping me sane for the last 6 months
This is a great table I have had one for 3 years from costco. The bats and balls are not the best but if you are really into to TT then I would assume you have your own bats all ready. The table folding mechanism is made of mild steel that is powder coated and it works well. The wheels are plastic so not the best but I have been dragging mine out a garden shed, across the grass and over a bumpy patio for years and the original wheels are still on and working. Hope this helps anyone thinking of buying. Mine has been great love it
The bats for this will likely be only slightly better than using wooden planks to play. Go order a Yinhe Galaxy 01b or get a Palio Expert. I assemble and sell table tennis bats so happy to take questions
Is it worth it?
Not sure why Amazon prices are always listed with Prime subscription, yet Costco prices are not.
If Eleven sucks then what you're really saying is Table Tennis sucks because it's the most accurate simulation of the game.
Racket Fury fanboys need to stop? I couldn't agree more
LOL lol lol fanboys need to stop (lol) (lol) (lol)
If you're gonna buy a Racket game for Quest make it Racket NX, tons of fun and a good arm workout in both single and multiplayer and it supports your own mp3s https://www.oculus.com/experiences/quest/2255408847836468/?locale=en_US
I keep seeing people say that Eleven is difficult but that's the sign of a good VR sports sim. It's realistic. You only get better with practice. You can in fact improve your real life TT game by playing Eleven assuming you're not already a decent real life player. There's also low skill AI on Eleven that shouldn't prove too much of a challenge for folks who are new to the game. It's just a case of building up your ability over time as you would if you were to take up TT in real life. Perhaps there's too much of an expectation of instant gratification? In reality you're just kidding yourself as Racket Fury is artificially improving your shots and therefore it's much more of an arcade VR game than a VR sports sim.

Donnay Table Tennis Table 20 percent off code £108.99 Delivered @ SportsDirect£108.99Sports Direct Deals
Anyone who owns this table can confirm how thick is the actual playing surface or if the bounce is really good? Confused with the way they have mentioned in the description. Was looking at Butterfly compact tables which have 19mm thick playing surface but this one is far cheaper so tempted to buy this rather but only if the play is good. Any help appreciated !
I had a play on the Rift-S over the weekend. It was great fun with Eleven. One thing to mention is that you may not be able to play on a real table if you wear varifocal glasses. Though a very good player on a real table, It all went down hill once I started wearing varifocal glasses. Fast moving objects like the table tennis balls becomes a challenge. This however was not an issue in VR so I am glad I can play again. Next time I have the opportunity to play on a real table, I think I will try using a single vision lens to see if that works for me.
Better to get a steel/alum table. We had one when I was young .... It was in the garden for many years and used everyday after school with friends in the neighbourhood. Now kids stay indoors watching Netflix and playing on game consoles!
I have one of these tables, it's great for the money very sturdy, I took mine outside during summer and I did notice how much the table changed shape in direct sunlight (20c day) never left it out overnight so not sure about that side but my gut would say this quickly be effected by the outside elements, even covered, but that's just my opinion and far from fact. The only thing I do know it great indoors and for that I would 100% recommend
Thanks for posting; we have added this to the Highlights section (y)

What's the story with all the HomCom deals? Nothing against them but they seem to be hot every day for something random!!
IT says regulation height. Not size :)
I'm slightly dubious about unbranded indoor table tennis tables. So far, looks like the Stiga Mini Table Tennis Table is the best compact indoor one https://www.amazon.co.uk/Stiga-Unisexs-Mini-Table-Brown/dp/B07T98ZZGQ/ - Aware it's double the price of this one though!

Hah, yeah, picked one with glowing reviews (one of which even mentioned having the ebay one previously & being well happy with the upgrade). Fingers crossed.
Hopefully they’re better than the ones on eBay (lol) , if not, I’ll be doing some more 3D printing later this week ;)
Just ordered one on Etsy - loads to choose from (y)
Apparently you can buy them online, but the HUKD member I printed that one for said the one he bought was rubbish, hence why I offered to make that one for him. I also designed & printed this box for my Quest headphones...
Oh wow, where can you source them online? I love what people can do with 3D printing!
That looks awesome! I've just tried to message you as well but it says you've opted out of receiving messages from users too (lol) I've activated mine in the settings now, so you should be able to contact me (y)
All put together and tested with my left controller. I’ve lined the insides with electrical tape so it doesn’t scratch the controller (tested). I haven’t tested it in game yet though (as it’s setup for me being right handed), if I get chance later I’ll try it out (y)
Tried messaging you, but says I can’t (you’re not set up to receive texts). All printed and filed/sanded down to get rid of the majority of the rough parts. I just need to check the fit using my controller next.
Ah brilliant, thanks loads! Seriously don't worry about painting it and stuff, but it would be great if it didn't scratch the controller. I'll drop you a message later :)
Printing started... (y)

Probably the Airoc M or even the S if you prefer softer rubbers. The Airoc Astro is faster Not impressed with the Boost series or the Magna series and don't know about the Neos (but they're certainly cheap enough to try!)
Looks good thanks I'll check them out. Which would you recommend out of the four for BH good control needed?
If you're still looking for rubbers, I just got an email that Thorntons is doing an end of life clearance of Stiga rubbers. I tried posting as a deal but Thornton's Table Tennis still isn't accepted as "the merchant is currently unsuitable for listing on hotukdeals" Check it out - Stiga Airoc and Airoc Astro series for only £19.99 + £2.99 delivery. They're also clearing off the Stiga Boost, Magna, and Neos series but TBH the Airoc series is better. Boost is rather mushy (so isn't great on anything but stiff, fast blades) and Magna TC II just doesn't have good levels of spin for the price you pay.
Then for a budget option, I suggest the Big Dipper (can generally get it for around £20 in the UK). And for a 'better' option I would recommend the Sanwei Gear Hyper (£37 delivered from Topspin TT - there's free delivery if you spend >£60) or the Tibhar K1 Plus (at Prott.vip or it's currently on sale this week for about £30 on TT11, shipping is 15€ though unless you spend more than 80€) You may already know this but for the benefit of others, the BH flick off backspin serves is mainly a matter a few things. I'll focus on two points (equipment like rubbers play a part but not hugely so): - Timing - hitting at the peak of the bounce - Brushing the ball instead of hitting through it. Get the above two right, and you'll be flicking serves back more consistently. I've greatly simplified it since it's never a good idea to focus on too many coaching points but it should get you going.
You know your stuff haha. I am working on the BH flick off backspin serves. Not great atm but need something with grip that helps it get over. I usually drive and counter hit with BH so need something with decent control and power to help that. Not massive looper from BH in normal play.
