The Five Aces - Smash Hit

A Sports/Crime Adventure

Lennart expects to be the champion at the table tennis tournament. For days he has done nothing but practice and he beats all the competition with no trouble at all. And, surprisingly, Kevin who is actually not a very good player, wins all his matches with ease, too. Is it only pure coincidence? Then one evening two hooded figures pay Lennart a visit in his room. He’ll have to lose his next match, or he´ll be in trouble. Lennart is scared – but doesn’t tell his friends anything. Nevertheless they soon notice how miserable he is. When Lennart is two sets behind Michael intervenes by setting off the fire alarm. The Five Aces make use of the commotion to devise a plan. But the blackmailers are not to be trifled with...

A genius with any ball, a supple gymnast, an untiring runner, a keen swimmer and an (almost) unbeatable decathlete – they are the ‘Five Aces’! Lennart, Michael, Linh, Ilka and Jabali are all close friends as well as being mad about sports. Together the five young sports aces, from five different continents, dive head first into every adventure – and at the same time have a lot of fun in sports.
