Ball does not return to you easily.

Difficult to use, especially for the kids.

Dear Paul,

Our design team is working on the refurbishment of the product.

So I suggest you ask for a refund.

Next year (quarter ) we will receive the new model.

Best regards

No more lost balls over the fence.

It does what it says. Can get some good rhythms going with a little bit of moving around. Only suggestion would be to include some more elastics in the pack.

Surprisingly good!

After I broke my leg, regaining mobility has been a bit of a challenge. I usually try to get some time to myself on the basketball court. But if both ends of the basketball court are ‘rammed’, I can still get some exercise in by using the ‘ball is back’ trainer in the middle of the court, safe in the knowledge that it won’t interfere with the people shooting hoops. It takes about 15 minutes after first unpacking to get the ball and the elastic to ‘bed-in’. After that, despite the issues with flexibility in my leg, I found it really easy to get some kind of rally going. There’s a translucent rubber bung in the recess that can be removed to allow the base to be filled with water or sand. Water seemed to messy, and it’s pointless buying sand in such small quantities. Instead, i filled the base with about 750g of household salt. Wearing rubber gloves, I then permanently sealed in the rubber bung with superglue. There’s another, smaller hole with a plastic bung that is adjacent to the rubber bung. I sealed this with superglue too. So, for the money, I can’t fault it. It keeps me moving. I also enjoy knocking a baseball/ softball around. Maybe decathlon could sell a baseball/ softball on an elastic string that can be attached to a batting tee? Graphite baseball bats would be cool too… But this tennis trainer has surpassed my expectations, so I’m perfectly happy with that.

Over hyped product

The product is a lot harder than it seems to get a rally going. I much prefer hitting a wall, and this "personal trainer" should be used as last options during lockdown...

Hi Jonathan-Pierre,

Thank you for the feedback, I will share this with the product manager.



Great tennis trainer

Brilliant for my son to continue training

Helpful for teaining

I’ve found it really helpful for training. It’s easy to setup and get going with. My only issue is that you put the water/sand in through a hole in the top instead of the bottom which in turn makes it impossible to completely empty. Apart from that it’s been great so far.

Fab ball back

Bought for my son to practice his tennis. At first he was dubious about it, but quickly got the hang of it, and he has used it every day (when it's not been raining!) since I bought it. The elastic is a little long for the space we have, but was sorted by tying a couple of loops in it!

This is a great idea and lets kids practice alone without the need of a partner, plus prevents the ball going over the fence! However the ball kept coming off at the start which defeated the purpose - in the end it was sewn on as a knot slid out of the elastic. Works best on a hard surface - would suit school's and stop them losing balls in PE lessons. Works OK on grass but bounce isn't great. Good design for storing

Not easy for children, maybe better for teenagers

Hard to manage how long the string to fit child’s play

For the ball is back, make sure you fill up the base with water or sand so it should be enough for junior player.
