The paper studies the properties of a sinusoidally vibrating wedge billiard as a model for 2D impact juggling. It is shown that some periodic orbits that are unstable in the elastic fixed wedge become exponentially stable in the (non-)elastic vibrating wedge. These orbits are linked with some classical juggling patterns, providing an interesting benchmark for the study or the frequency-locking properties in human rhythmic tasks.
