We used one of the foam tables last year. They're great for 
transportation and storage. The two problems we encountered were with 
the game surface not being as smooth/level as it would be with a wood 
table, and, depending on how you design and program your robot, the 
performance against the side walls is not the same because rubber wheels 
grab the foam more than do on wood.
