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
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 MACHINEYou 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.
