Tennis Tutor, Lobster, Tennis Tower, Spinfire Pro 2, Spinshot Pro.
I specialise in repair, parts, batteries, servicing, new machines, used machines, demo days, help and advice.
If you have a ball machine I have been using, selling, servicing and repairing them for over 25 years.
Batteries are the most common issue with them as people sometimes forget to plug them in and over the course of a few weeks the batteries drain.
Other issues I find are ball fluff, every month I throw bags of the stuff away! You have to be very careful removing it as it can stick to the electrical components. The rollers are a less common issue that need replacing, although after a while the wheel surface can smooth off and need roughing up with a piece of rough sandpaper.
I offer a FREE collection and return service in Kent further afield at cost. I will also buy your used ball machine, working or not! Call Nick 07890 290528

Please contact me for help and advice in buying a tennis ball machine, if you are a tennis club or have your own private court I regularly demonstrate machines with absolutely no obligation to buy. Let me show you which machine would be most suitable for you and your tennis!
Why buy a used tennis ball machine?
Tennis ball machines tend to be expensive new so like buying a new car if you decide not to use after a while and then store in the garage, when you come to sell it the used value will have dropped considerably on the new price. Buying a good used machine, like my machines that have been properly serviced and with new batteries etc are much more sensible way of buying a ball machine. If after one year you decide its not for you then your loss with be minimal. In fact I have bought back quite a few machines over the years. I give a 3 month guarantee on all the used machines I sell and I offer free delivery in Kent.
Secure payment through Paypal using your Visa, Mastercard or bank debit card, cash on collection is also accepted. Contact me now – Nick 07890 290528
All used ball machines are fully serviced plus new batteries, wiring loom and rollers if needed and supplied with a new battery charger/conditioner in addition I offer a 3 month guarantee. I can offer delivery at cost (usually around £20 depending on model) If you are not too far away collection if preferred (or I can deliver for you) then you can see the machine working and avoid any issues in transit with payment on delivery.
I will buy your used machine working or not!
I also offer part exchange! Trade in your old ball machine for a newer better model!
Give me a call now 07890 290528 and I will give you a fair price and collect with cash or arrange a collection from you!
When I receive a ball machine to service I usually find all sorts of things in the machine, ball fluff of course, leaves, and dust plus spiders (I hate spiders!) whole families of them too. I’ve had mice and a birds nest as well. Damp conditions are the worst as rust sets in and then your internal wiring and electrical components rust!
What I do first is remove all the rubbish then carefully remove the battery cover and wiring, in this case new wiring was needed and the battery terminals replaced. I then coat the inside of the machine with a coating that helps stop dust, fluff and other things sticking and so helps it keep a bit cleaner for the future. Storage is vital so please nowhere damp, cold and dusty. Sheds and garages are ok in the summer but when winter hits consider storing it somewhere more suitable and periodically run it for 10 mins then plug it in to charge, if you do this on a weekly basis your batteries will last much longer and the machine will be ready for you next season.
