Sadly I never got to play Aurora Zing Tennis. I had never even heard of it until a friend of mine who is a table tennis enthusiast started asking me about it. A quick search and I found this commercial from the mid-1970s and I think it looks pretty cool. It is similar to table tennis, but you play it on an angled table with these special zingers.
From what I hear the game retailed for about $15 bucks in 1975 and could be really challenging if you played with people who practiced a lot and could master the fancy shots.
