This listing was published in the book 100 Programs For The BBC Microcomputer by Prentice Hall International in association with Acornsoft. The book contains the following description:
This is an adaption of an old video game. We have two players playing tennis on a green pitch.
Player 1 uses keys Z and X to move his bat up and down.
Player 2 uses keys . and / to move his bat up and down.
The score is displayed at the top of the screen. There are a total of fifty balls available in the game, rather more than in the old video games. This is an interesting program in that no graphics are used. The movements are accomplished by print statements. Try using *FX11 and *FX12 commands to improve the program.
