I thought of doing this BUT do the balls mess up the table surface? What I would really like is for the Nerf people to start selling those ping pong sets again. Had a lot of fun with those when I was a kid.

Amazingly, they do not. This "sport" has been extremely gentle on our table.

Our kitchen table is an oval, but our rarely-used dining room table is a spacious rectangle.

this is brilliant. i have an old table in the basement that i'm totally repurposing for this! yay!

What a fun idea!

Genius! Thanks!

Wow this brings me back, we used to do this when we were kids, thanks for the reminder!

That is so clever. I don't know about using my dining room table, but I have another table that will work just great. My kids are going to love it.
