Place the clear cover onto the game, lining up the hinge on the cover and the hinge on the court divider.
Insert the two pins into the hinge. Slide one pin into each end of the hinge. Press firmly so they fully snap into the hinge.
( 2 rubber bands needed for replacement )
Stretch the band over the posts making sure it stays under the button extensions.
Over time the rubber bands in your game will wear down.
To keep the balls flying at top speeds periodically change the rubber bands by taking off the old bands and sliding on new ones.
Begin with three balls of the same color in each player's court.
One player yells go. Then, smash the buttons as fast as possible to send the balls flying through the divider into your opponent's court.
The first player to get all six balls into the opponent's court wins the round.
