Balloon tennis
Cheap, easy, fun - what more can I say?

You'll need:

  • Wire coat hangers
  • Old pantihose
  • Balloons
  • Scissors
  • Pliers
  • Wide masking tape

Do this:

  1. Open out the coat hangers by holding on to the hook parts and pulling the straight bottom parts out until it looks vaguely ring shaped.
  2. Cut off the legs of the pantyhose, and pull them over the rings until the feet are stretched tight and covering the ring.
  3. Bend the hook of the hanger together with a pair of pliers so that it forms a handle, and bind the open end of the pantihose to this with masking tape.
  4. Blow up the balloons, find a biggish flattish place - your lounge might do - and play away!
