Growing up, my grandparents always had a tennis court in their backyard. You could make the tennis net higher if you wanted to play volleyball, and you could take the tennis net down altogether and play basketball with the hoops that were planted on either side of the court. That court was probably what got me so interested in the game of tennis but there was one thing that it was missing; a tennis ball machine.
Sometimes I didn`t have a partner to play with so a tennis ball machine would have come in real handy! If you have the extra room on your property, you can make use of the spare space and make your backyard into your family`s own personal rec center; even if you’re on a budget!
For your own tennis court, you’re going to need to invest in tennis net. A ball machine would also make the tennis court even better because it will allow you and other members of the family to practice alone when others are busy.
There are so many options of tennis ball machines, ranging from around $500 all the way up to $8,000. Of course you don`t need an $8,000 tennis ball machine for a home court; there are plenty of options on the lower end of the price spectrum.
The battery operated Tennis Tutor Cube Oscillating Ball Machine is a lower cost tennis ball machine perfect for a home court. It has a ball capacity of 150 balls and a ball ejection speed of 10-60 MPH. The Tennis Cube also has a built in random oscillator that throws balls in a sweeping pattern from side to side giving you a great workout!
You can set the Tennis Cube to throw balls between every 2 seconds to every 10 seconds, letting you control how you want to practice your swings.
So if you have spare space, time, a little extra cash and you love the game of tennis, take a look at some of the products you need to create your family`s own private recreation center. Keep in mind, however, once you neighbors find out it might not be so private!
