Ball Machine Week: Playmate Serve Lift

playmate-serve-lift.jpg
The Playmate Serve Lift is killer for serving practice and drills. Not only can the Serve Lift help you practice the most important shot in tennis, the serve return, but it can do so much more. Your opponent often hits a slice with the racquet high in the air, so practice a realistic slice that comes from a naturally elevated position to create a truly game like environment.

-Practice Defensive Lobs Against the Ball Machines Overhead
-Practice Poaching by Reading The Ball Machine's Wide or Inside Serve
-Safety First Stable Design
-Aircraft Aluminum Construction

tennis-tutor-cube-oscillating-ball-machine.jpg
This Tennis Tutor Cube Oscillating Ball Machine has a random oscillator that automatically throws balls in a sweeping pattern from side to side so you get a great workout while hitting balls on the run.

This machine does what a ball machine is supposed to do, throw tennis balls so you can practice your strokes. Just turn it on, set the ball speed, adjust the elevation if necessary, and you are ready to start practicing.

You can change how often Tennis Cube throws balls from every two seconds to every ten seconds, and anywhere in between so you can practice at your own pace. Tennis Cube holds a full standard pick-up basket full of balls. And Tennis Cube even politely waits ten seconds after you turn it on before it begins throwing balls, giving you time to walk to the other side of the net.

Features:


  • Ball capacity: 150 balls

  • Trajectories: groundstroke to lob

  • Ball ejection speed: 10-60 MPH

  • Ball feed rate: 2 to 10 seconds
