NEWEST GAME-“SMASH” (Mar, 1957)
SMASH! Into the sturdy, collapsible plywood backstop goes the tough little polyethylene ball. How it returns is anybody’s guess until you’ve learned how to play the angles against an opponent’s weaknesses. Big thing about this new paddle game is that it’s fun from the beginning, can develop great skill and condition in the player and uses a space only 9 by 12 feet in your garage, cellar, porch or driveway. Schools, Y’s and youth clubs are using it and Aussie tennis stars showed it off at Olympic Village, Melbourne.
