In Scotland in the late 70s/early 80s my mum bought a rather excellent dexterity game for us boys to argue over- a crossfire-tennis hybrid where two players, each with a plastic ‘catch and shoot’ contraption (similar to the ‘guns’ in crossfire) fired a small white plastic ball at each other across a table top tennis court, with a thin white plastic ‘net’. We had some amazing 5 set matches, and then went off to watch Borg and McEnroe on the telly. Would love to track it down but unfortunately I don’t remember the name or anything else about it.

Can any of you good people point me in the right direction?
