    It works well. Some of those bounces of the racquet seemed questionable...

    do u have a suggestion on how to improve the physics? Would love inputs on that.

    I think on the original pong the bounces of the raquets are relative to the position of the bounce on the raquet. A middle bounce is `neutral`, a top bounce pushes the balls angle more towards the top, a bottom bounce more towards the bottom. Here is a discussion on it.

    Great! Thanks for this. Ill have a read. I need to reopen this file now.... I've dumped it post making massive mods in intro retro screens, scoring, tournament & practice modes etc etc etc....

    agreed but using simplistic calculations. Sticking to arcade fun than be all physics-y ;)
