That's a shame. I'll have to keep that in mind for future reference
Ditto. Only complaint is I've noticed that the hook n loop has caught on the mesh pulling the fibres,which could potentially damage mesh!
Mine arrived two days ago and I'm quite happy with it. Easy to put together, although the table didn't look like it was going to be flat to begin with. Once all parts were on, it was fine. The ball bounces on the table fine. Easy to transport with the travel bag as well. Thank you for posting.
Mine arrived already open and bits hanging out - typical Hermes mishandling I bet. I refused to accept delivery and the guy just turned around and left. Then tried to deliver the next day as they correctly assumed I wouldn't be there. However, I knew Hermes would try such a dirty trick and warned the missus not to accept delivery. Sure enough the guy turned up, having taped up the torn box but missus refused to accept it still. Hopefully it's on its way back to Aldi.
I wish I had applied your logic before wasting my money on this thing. Yes, it is something to get the children outside in the garden but they will spend more time bouncing the ball off the grass rather than on this so called table. Complete waste of space.
