View Full Version : tennis rebounder net vs. practice wall

Feb 5th, 2011, 04:19 PM
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!

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 :)

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

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.
