A Unique and Effective Training Tool
The Wally Rebounder is a simple yet effective tool to improve your table tennis game. Rebound boards offer something a hitting partner or robot can't, immediate and direct feedback. With a hitting partner they can adjust a little bit to return the ball where it needs to go, a rebound board will only return the ball to where it needs to go if you hit it properly. A robot will send you a great ball, but while you might hit it on the other side of the table where you wanted it to go, you don't get much information about how much and the exact direction of the spin you might have put on it. While nothing can completely replace these two tools, they are not your only option. Rebound boards can take your game to the next level if you dedicate some time to them.
