• Short Summary

    A machine spits out ping-pong balls for table tennis champion Stuart Gibbs to bat.

  • Description

    London.

    At the National Association of Youth Clubs' headquarters we see various shots of table tennis champion Stuart Gibbs returning ping-pong balls that come out in a steady stream from a serving machine. The machine is called the Stiga Robot.

    Another man, who had been directing the Stiga, joins Stuart at the other end of the table and they take turns in hitting the balls being shot out from the machine.

    Note: on file are two leaflets about the machine and a letter from a PR company suggesting the story. Cuts exist - see separate record.
