It was an undeniably exciting sport, but its inventors, Jake and Josh Meridian (pictured at right, shortly before their deaths), never could manage a rally.
Their best game (shown here, immediately preceding their horrific fiery demise) never really got off the ground, so to speak.
Jake’s trousers (in the foreground, slightly earlier than their irrevocable staining) were not even regulation tennis wear.
Alltop has thrilling rallies. Thanks to Foxtongue for finding this vintage pic. Originally published May, 2009.
