Can you solve this?

A bit of light relief. See if you can solve this logic puzzle:

You are playing table tennis with a friend and the ball falls down a 30 cm long, 5 cm diameter metal tube, completely encased in concrete, just open at ground level. You obviously can’t reach down and retrieve the ball, but you do have your table tennis bats, a plastic water bottle, and a meter length of string in your pocket. Using just these items how do you retrieve the ball and continue your game?

A solution will be published in our next newsletter…
