New built in stool feature on Ace Attack Tennis Ball Machine

OnCourt OffCourt and Sports Attack Ball Machines have signed a long-term worldwide exclusive distribution agreement for OnCourt OffCourt to handle all marketing and sales of the Ace Attack Tennis Ball Machine.
Joe Dinoffer, founder of Oncourt Offcourt, reports “The Ace Attack Tennis Ball Machine has been available for 15 years but under-promoted in the tennis industry while Sports Attack has focused on their very popular machines for baseball, softball, football, soccer, and volleyball. Finally the time has come to re-launch this existing solid technology to the world of tennis with a handful of key improvements. These upgrades include a flashing ball feed indicator, improved control panel function, random ball feed option, and easier access to the ball machine’s unique see-through polycarbonite ball basket. We are confident this machine will be recognized as an all-star in tennis as it is for other sports, such as pro football where every team in the NFL uses the Sports Attack machine.”

Playing stool ball (medieval baseball)

At an SCA event, the Known Wide World of Sports on August 2, 2008, a group of us played stool ball, a reconstruction of a medieval bat and ball game. It's lots of fun! There is also a modern game of stool ball, but it's a little different than this version.

We tend to use modern baseball terminology such as batter and pitcher because it's easier for Americans learning this game to understand.

We didn't have a video camera, so this video is made of still photographs.
