Tether Ball Game

When I was a kid when dinosaurs in acid wash jeans ruled the earth, we had a backyard game that was like tether ball (in that you hit a ball attached with a rope around a pole until one of you wrapped the rope completely around the pole), but it had a much smaller ball, plastic, and you used paddles instead of your hands.

What is the name of this game? Does it even have a name? Was it just called tether ball, too?

I searched "paddle ball, tether ball, backyard games, outdoor games, and pole paddles game" in Google and Google Images, and "tether, ball, and paddle" on ebay. I'm at a loss where to look next.
