I've set up a table tennis table in a home at an altitude of 7200 feet or 2200 meters above sea level.  I noticed that the balls seem to bounce higher.  There could be several reasons for the higher bounce such as the new table surface or the new training balls but I'm wondering if the high altitude is the main reason for the high bounce.  I was wondering if the higher altitude and lower ambient air pressure causes the balls to puff up and become bouncier.  Any thoughts on whether the high altitude could be causing the higher ball bounce?

Hi Rick,

I haven't played at altitude but. am sure it would have some effect.  I am not sure what that effect would be but t sounds like you have seen some differences.

If anyone with some more knowledge knows the effects please let us know.
