The Story

Without the iGENIE ball machine

BEFORE THE iGENIE, BALL MACHINES WERE HARD-TO-USE

90% of players didn’t use a ball machine and those who did only set it up for a rally or volley because the ball machine was hard to use.

Even then it took 15-20 wasted balls to set that up.

Teaching pro’s wouldn’t use it either.

We attempted something never done before: create a ball machine that was user-friendly and spoke the language of tennis. We needed preset skill levels and preset shots.

IT WASN'T THAT EASY

Some may say it must have been easy to create a ball machine, toss in 3 skill levels and 7 preset shots and be done. It wasn’t that easy because:

  • each ball machine behaves differently
  • different court surfaces
  • different ball types and ball conditions
  • altitude differences
The iGENIE can play on any court

We had to create a calibration process that would teach the ball machine about itself and the environment from club to club.

BENEFITS OF A CALIBRATED BALL MACHINE

You choose an easy rally ball left and right and you’re ready to play. You can even combine different shots to build drills. It’s a perfect drill with no wasted balls and no wasted time.
The iGENIE has user-friendly controls
