Phew. Checking the accuracy of a radar gun with a stopwatch sounded akin to checking the accuracy of a nuclear clock with a home-made sun-clock!

(Other factors that would have came into play - other than distance to fence - would have been ball, spin, surface.... and sure, the first two can come into it with the gun, but not nearly as much as when calculating average speed which includes the bounce & associated decceleration).
