We consider a billiard system consisting on an infinite rod (a straight line) and a ball (a massless point) on the plane. The rod uniformly rotates around one of its points and experiences elastic collisions with the ball. We develop a mathematical model for dynamics of such a system and study the main properties (including asymptotics) of its motions.
