    Hi everyone. When I was about 8yrsld i uused to hit indoors against a thing called a tennis partner. I haven't been able to find one in north america and was wondering if anyone has seen it for sale anywhere? The only similar one I found is one this site www.tenniswall.co.za.

    If anyone knows somewhere in the us or canada where a similar product is sold, let me know.

    Thanks,

    Rich

    I doubt that thing would really help anyone's game. The demonstration videos are pretty ridiculous. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljVxhT3_sTs

    I suggest finding a regular wall nearby and just playing against that.

    Build your own with plywood.

    OP, yeah I'm not convinced these things do anything to help really. Either join an indoor club and play for real or just sit the winter season out and work on strength/conditioning and then pick it up again in spring.

    LeeD/paul_tennis - did you guys even look at the OP's link before responding?

    Hang a tarp up. That's all that thing really is.

    I have an elementary school next to my house and in the rear of the school the wall is lit every night all night so even when it is cold I can hit against the wall. If I don't hit 3 times a week my game goes South and a brick wall can be better than many 4.5 matches I play bc I can break as much of a sweat as I desire.

    Definitely can't use plywood. Too much snow/bad weather in the winter where I am and really it's not bad to get more touches/repetition, it's like getting a lot of drop feeds. There's no way I would use it for volleys but ive seen many kids look good and having fun with ground strokes. A couple parents i know just want something that would work in their basement.
