A Complete Guide To Buying a Table Tennis Robot

There’s nothing quite like playing table tennis with a new tennis table and some good competition. Unfortunately, we don’t always get the chance to play with other people.

When that’s the case, it’s good to know you can rely on a table tennis robot to be there and help you get in the needed training. The only problem is, you aren’t sure which robot you need to help you hone your skills.

Thankfully, there’s a simple way to know which one you need for the task at hand, and we’ve presented it to you in this article.

How to Get the Right Table Tennis Robot for Your Needs

Once you find the right robot, you’ll be on your way to playing table tennis like a pro. Read on to find out more.

What Is Your Level of Experience?

The very first thing that you should be asking yourself is what level of experience you need out of your table tennis machine. In order to know that, you have to know what experience level you are.

Like most categories, there are three levels to buying a robotic ball machine: beginner, intermediate, and advance. By knowing your own level of expertise, you can buy the appropriate machine for you needs.

Of course, if you’re just starting out in the game, then you need to get you a robot for beginners. Once you start stepping up your game, you can move on to a more challenging, intermediate robot.

Feeling a real challenge? The advance bot is the perfect one for you. Just make sure you choose the right setting before you consider buying.

What Frequency Are You Looking For?

Table tennis bots can deliver various frequency levels, which can help you prepare for a more serious match against actual opponents.

Each robot shoots balls at a certain level of frequency; in other words, how many balls they can shoot within a minute. You’ll want to be comfortable with the speed that they balls are coming at you so you can learn to play the game properly.

A beginner robot, or a robot that isn’t very expensive, is more than likely going to shoot at a lower frequency than a more expensive or more advanced robot. There are also some bots that can have their speed adjusted, while others can’t.

How Much Are You Willing to Spend?

Hey, you knew you’d have to ask yourself the question eventually.

Table tennis bots each have different costs, and these costs are dependent on what specifics you’re looking for. There are many things to consider, such as ball frequency, placement, spin variation, speed, and even pre-set training drills.

If you’re a casual player, or one just starting off, you don’t need as many specifics as someone who’s more advanced, so you don’t need to pay as much for a bot. If you have more experience, you need to pay for a bot on your level.

In general, tennis bots tend to get more expensive as you go up in skill level, so keep that in mind as well as the different services you need the bot to perform.
