My wife and I love tennis.
One day, during our warm-up drills, my wife was focusing on her serve, and I decided to practice my returns. I wanted to give my wife a target to aim her serves, so I placed a 9" plastic spot in the corner of the service court as a target. Thinking myself a genius, I thought, "Perfect…my wife can focus on her serve…she knows where to aim…I can focus on my returns." Seems simple, but it turned complex quickly.
After the first serve, right as I am about to hit my return—literally at the moment of me returning the ball—my wife asks, "DID I HIT IT?" I had no idea. I didn`t want to tell her I was thinking about me - not her.
How could I tell my wife that her serve hit the mark, while I was concentrating on watching the ball? I started thinking—how can we both practice this drill? Perhaps if the plastic spot made noise when she hit it, I could practice my return?
Nothing that made noise was on the market. I thought I could easily make something that would work.
After several failed attempts at a "whoopee cushion" type of noise, I finally changed to a design that had bumps on the surface which would make the ball bounce erratically. The acebuilder Service Target is unique because:
Try out the acebuilder Service Target—just like my wife, I am certain you will experience a tremendous increase in the accuracy of your serve.
