Pickleball Tutor Machine

Free 3 Dozen Dura Balls (MSRP $86.97)

The Pickleball Tutor Machine may be small, but it sure is mighty! This revolutionary machine is only 12 x 18 inches wide and 20 inches deep, making it almost half the size of other machines on the market. It also weighs only 29 pounds – easy to transport to any pickleball court imaginable. This machine can hold up to a whopping 125 pickleballs. Shots are customizable: choose from a high lob, a short dink or a quick, direct fire at speeds up to 50 miles per hour.

The Pickleball Tutor Machine is available in battery-powered or AC models. When the battery is fully charged, it can last up to 2-3 hours. Players can program the machine to fire at intervals between 1 and 10 seconds depending on how quick you want your game to be.

The Pickleball Tutor Machine is available in oscillating and non-oscillating options (battery or AC power). The oscillating model will randomly fire side-to-side shots, or you can select the 2-line version to set separate shot locations. Conversely, the non-oscillating version will fire straight shots in whichever direction the machine is pointed. The machine can be used with either indoor or outdoor pickleballs.

never worked right August 8, 2018
Reviewer: Cary Sternick from The Woodlands, TX United States  
The machine arrived in a timely way and was packaged well. It never worked however. The balls do not load into the chute correctly and thus it is valueless. Also it is very noisy. Do not turn it on after hours or neighbors for miles away will complain. I am returning it. PICKLEBALLCENTRAL RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback on the Tutor machine.  It does seem unusual that it would not work right out of the box. Have you called Sports Tutor. They offer good customer service and will be willing to work with you on a replacement if it is in fact defective

Pickleball Tutor August 3, 2018
Reviewer: Catalino Cuadrado from Claremont, NH United States  
It missing a good manual, no  instructions on how to set the controls for lob, dinks. the pickleball court is a fixed size. there should be diagrams showing where to place the tutor and set the elevation controls for a specific shot(dinks, lobs)

Jury is still out July 24, 2018
Reviewer: William Straehl from Tallahassee, FL United States  
I've been having some issues with the Tutor.  Ball feed is inconsistent at times, especially at lower speed.  I do have some fairly new balls, but that doesn't seem to be the problem.  I'll keep playing with it and see if things straighten themselves out.

Great machine. Superior customer service July 13, 2018
Reviewer: Gail Markovich from Roseville, CA United States  
At all levels Pickleball Central has exceeded my expectations. The machine was sent ASAP and when I realized I had a discount code they applied it after the fact. When UPS messed up with the delivery of the balls PC came through like lightning to provide another shipment. Kudos to this company.

Great Practice Tool July 12, 2018
Reviewer: James Haines from Port Saint Lucie, FL United States  
Pickleball Tutor is an excellent training aid for an individual or group of players.  It propels balls at a high speed, has excellent control over elevation, rate of ball feed and dispersion.  The battery powered model is easy to use and provides two hours of continuous use. The remote is a must.
