Love this item. We play on the road (not heavily traveled) So easy to pick up and move It is a great workout and gets my heart rate up quickly. The ball returns easily. We prefer racquetball club over a tennis racquet. It a one person game, but we compete as to how many returns we can get in a row. We play when it’s only 40 degrees!!
This tennis trainer is just like I had when I was a kid. I recently had a double knee replacement and wanted some upper body exercise. Running and playing real tennis is not for me anymore. However, I got a really good workout from this. I am able to use it on the back patio which is long and I use a racquet ball racquet because of space. This wouldn’t be good if you were really training to play tennis because you just smack it as hard as you can, but for a workout or to build strength it’s great. I would recommend this to anyone, especially to those who have had knee issues or just want some good upper body workout. I use a fitbit and my heart beat is in the cardio range for this. Very satisfied.
I bought this for my daughter, who is 9, so she could practice in our backyard, this improved her game significantly. This also improved her thinking time and speed. It did not break on us, but I can see how others would complain about this as the string is basically a 12 foot piece of rubber band, same width as the ones used in an office. For the price it does the job its supposed to do and was inexpensive. The other options for similar trainers were ridiculously expensive and received low reviews. All the company would need to do to improve this is just add a more sturdier bungy string instead of a legit rubber band string and there would be less problems. If you need an inexpensive trainer go for this one it works great.
Love my new work out using this drill… don’t expect to practice textbook shots like hitting with a partner… this is not going to fill a partner at the other end of the court… this is a super warm up equipment. You will be warmed up before your partner or opponent arrives… You want to vent your frustration or get a good back hand swings or forehand… this is amazing… you will leave sweating in mins compared to half hour hitting with a partner or on the wall…
My husband said it gives you a workout and is an excellent trainer. Very pleased with this purchase. I’m adding to my initial review because I am now hooked on this product. Its not only a great workout, its also FUN! Our tennis game has really improved and we play every day. We warm up using this kit. Eventually the ball/elastic will come off so be sure to order a couple replacement balls. I love playing tennis now and would like to add that this product is great for everyone!
Im used to play a lot of tennis but couldn’t find the time to arrange someone to play with lately. I am thrilled I came across this nifty idea. I didn’t think it would be that effective but surprisingly works very well! I also love it comes in a little compact case so i can carry it around easily! My neighbors might get annoyed with the sound of me hitting the ball for hours but there isn’t a way to prevent that. overall, im very pleased with this purchase.
