Ball Machine Hire

If you fancy a game but have no one to play with, or want a good practice session, try out Hartswood’s new tennis machine. 

The ‘Spinfire’ can be set to feed you balls side to side or down the middle, and you can adjust the height of the ball it feeds you so you can work on volleys and smashes as well as ground strokes. It can even give you balls with spin or slice. What’s more, you get a very good aerobic workout!

Hiring the machine costs £10 an hour (you can share your session with a friend, of course). To book a session with the ball machine please email

NB You must be a paid up member of Hartswood Tennis Club to hire the ball machine.
