Just use a motorized paddle and then that will catapult it into the goal

lighter isnt always better.

take a lightly crumpled up piece pf paper and throw it.

and the same piece densely packed. the small dense piece will fly farther, faster and more acurate


trust me. ;) i do it at school

well two wheels spinning opposite ways something goes through middle touches both wheels and gets pushed through fasssst. the other is just paddles stuck into a cork or something and it spins and the paddle hits the balls (not very accurate tho) usially shoots it up or straight down.

Imagine that spinning and imagine a ping pong ball inside it -- the ping pong ball would fly!

well if the paddles were thinner , then it would be accurate

small enough compartments for the ping pong ball to slip in and not move around
