tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

i am thinking which one to buy to improve my game. the rebounder costs a fraction of that of a practice wall, plus it is detachable. so I am inclined to go for it. but since I have no experience with it, I wonder whether the rebounder is at all comparable to a practice wall (particularly compared to a parabolic wall, which I find great)? does it feel real? does the ball bounce back to the hitter or remain short/ go long? any input appreciated!

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

i had the same situation last year. I went for the rebounder in the end but the ball does bounce a little low and short depending on the weight of your shot (also if you are a hard hitter, it kind of moves to one side and you have to keep on going back to get it into the right position again) plus it can become pretty annoying when the srcrews come loose all the time but i like it, easy to move and i can practice the positioning of my groundstrokes much better I would advise if your low on cash, stay away but if your prepared to invest then you shouldn't be too disappointed !!

Hope i helped

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

I would recommend the wall personally, since its what I have. It gives more control over the ball, is a little safer and lasts longer. The rebounder may be cheaper, but if you are a regular player, which I am guessing you are, then you probably would want to invest a little more and get something you really use. From my experience that is always the best idea

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

I tend to agree with no-hay-igual and awesome8nine, I bought a rebounder and broke it pretty quickly. The practice wall can turn out to be really expensive but if you are playing often, it's definitely worth the investment.

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

Balls come back fast, flat, and low to the ground hitting against a wall. You won't win the French Open hitting against a wall, but you might win Wimbledon.

the rebounder is a fairly useless tool, it's only good for BH slice. the balls bounce back low.

i have tested several walls now and I would recommend a parabol shaped wall made by a German company. somehow the balls bounce back logically, flat, yes, not short and low. due to the parabolic shape the balls actually bounce up from the wall.

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

Well....you should comment my technique. Forget about the wall. This is so far the only video I have. I'll do some more videos of me actually playing on clay. If you watched it there are also some high balls, but all flat.

....and yes Wimbledon win will be enough for me....no need for RG!

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

To be honest I practiced with tennis rebound nets, and can say it is good way for practicing.

Re: tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

This will cost you less than $100 in raw materials. Much better than a wall for swing stroke training IMO.
