Sports Tutor Tennis Tutor:
Tennis Tutor® is portable enough to take anywhere, yet powerful enough to challenge even top-level players. In fact, Tennis Tutor is used by tennis pros at the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Training Center in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
PATENTED TECHNOLOGY, PROVEN PERFORMANCE:
Tennis Tutor’s patented technology, combined with over 20 years of experience and refinement, have made Tennis Tutor the #1 portable ball machine worldwide.
Tennis Tutor features an electronic control panel which gives you fingertip control of ball speed, trajectory, and ball feed rate (the time interval between ball throws). Ball speed ranges from a gentle toss for children to world-class speed. Ball trajectory can be set anywhere between groundstroke and lob, while ball feed rate adjusts anywhere from 1-1/2 to 10 seconds.
You can set Tennis Tutor to repeat shots you need to practice, or to oscillate and direct shots randomly across the court.
Tennis Tutor also features an exclusive anti-jam ball feeding mechanism, and a 10-second start-up time delay to give you time to get to your side of the net.
TRUE PORTABILITY... AND MORE:
Tennis Tutor is truly portable, measuring only 12 inches tall when the ball hopper is folded down for transport. And with the towing handle extended, it tows just like luggage.
When you get to the court, the ball hopper opens in seconds to hold 150 balls, which is more than two standard pick-up baskets full of balls.
Tennis Tutor comes standard with a built-in heavy duty rechargeable battery that can deliver up to six hours of playing time, so there's little need for extra batteries. But if you do want more battery life there is an optional External Battery Pack (see accessories).
TENNIS TUTOR PLUS:
Tennis Tutor Plus includes all the features of the standard Tennis Tutor, plus adds topspin and underspin capability. A simple dial controls the amount of topspin or underspin you desire. The Tennis Tutor Plus measures eight inches taller than the standard Tennis Tutor. Tennis Tutor Plus is the only portable ball machine that displays the Elevation setting right on the control panel. A simple 10-segment display shows the elevation setting so you can set it to your favorite spot before firing any balls.
With the push of just one button, the Player model (Patented) simulates a player on the other side of the net. Just push either the Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced buttons, and the Player model automatically picks an appropriate speed and spin, then changes both the side-to-side position and the depth of shots just like you were playing someone of that ability.
MULTI FUNCTION REMOTE:
The Multi-function Remote controls all functions of the Tennis Tutor Player Plus just like you were using the actual control panel. In fact, the layout of the buttons on the Multi-function remote is the same as the layout of the buttons on the machine’s control panel, so there is nothing new to learn. And each time you press a button on the Multi-function Remote your Tennis Tutor will beep to let you know it received the signal.
TENNIS TUTOR W/2-LINE FEATURE:
This model has two additional oscillator choices: ‘2-line narrow’ and ‘2-line wide’, which automatically shoot to two preset court positions. This feature allows you to practice alternating forehand and backhand shots, or allows an instructor to automatically shoot to two lines of students.
REMOTE CONTROL OPTIONS FOR PLAYER MODEL:
- Two-button wireless remote – Starts and stops ball delivery, and controls side-to-side position of the ball throws.
- Multi-Function Remote – Controls all functions just like you were using the actual control panel. The layout of the buttons on the Multi-function remote is the same as the layout of the buttons on the control panel, so there is nothing new to learn.
Tennis Tutor and Tennis Tutor Plus are both available with a two-button wireless remote control. The hand-held remote lets you start and stop ball delivery, and control the side-to-side position of the ball throws. Both are also available with a 2-line function that automatically shoots to two preset court positions. This feature allows you to practice alternating forehand and backhand shots, or allows an instructor to automatically shoot to two lines of students. There are two 2-line settings, narrow and wide, for added versatility. Additionally, Tennis Tutor Plus is available with Player Mode™. Player Mode simulates the shot patterns of real players, and is described below.
Tennis Tutor is backed by a two year warranty covering both parts and labor. Extended warranties available.
