Do you know if this is a common occurrence? Do you think it's OK? I am just about pulling the trigger on a ball machine, so I went and ask at my club if I could bring one in. Initially, the club owner said why not, but then he consulted the pro who just flat out objected to the ball machine. It's a small 3-court place, not really a club, but it's 5 mn from my place. It's run by a nice family but they have this ageing pro who trains mostly the well-off damsels and kiddos of the neighborhood. I am a bit peeved, should have I seen this coming? .
