If night tennis is just plain boring, neither the wii nor Smash Court are cutting it, and you’re done orchestrating the game between Roddick and Pong, perhaps you’d like your balls served with a side of time travel. The BBC Sport website provides an online tennis game called Tardis Tennis, based on the time machine/spacecraft from the Dr. Who series.
You can play as Queen Victoria (“slow, big hitter”), John Lennon (good all round), or Shakespeare (“fast but weak”).
I couldn’t quite figure it out during a work break, but I’ll come back to it later. If you’ve played it, tell me what you think.
