Pickleball Tutor Plus Pickleball Machine - Staff Impression

We couldn't be more excited about the upgrades this machine brings. Faster ball speeds, faster feed rate, ability to impart underspin or top spin, plus the industry's best warranty and support on Pickleball machines!

Shipping dimensions: 26" x 16" x 26"
Speeds up to 65 mph
3 year manufacturer warranty on machine
1 year manufacturer warranty on battery
Made in the USA

The USAPA pickleball specifications permit a range in ball diameter (2.854” - 2.992”). If the Pickleball Tutor is used with a mix of both the smaller and larger diameter pickleballs, players may have a varied experience with trajectory. If the machine is set to feed the ball low over the net with the larger diameter ball, the smaller ball may have a lower trajectory, even hitting the top of the net. The distance between the wheels of the machine determine how much pressure is put on the ball and the resulting speed the ball is fed. Therefore, a smaller diameter ball will come out of the machine slightly slower than the larger diameter ball.

    Good experience so far. The issue is the inconsistent way the ball is delivered. it comes out high sometimes and low sometimes. All in all, I feel its worth the money and helps me with my game!!

    Overall a good machine. Initially had a few issues with ball needing to be assisted loading. I used machine for about 2 hours with no further feed issues. The only persistent issues are setting up or changing speed. Elevation seems to be very sensitive to change. . Once it finally “settles in”, things work well.

    I'm retired and have my own pickleball court. I was looking for a way to work on drills. The Pickleball Tutor exceeded my expectations. A side benefit, my grandson can use a plastic bat to swing at pickleballs which has improved his batting skills.

    Recommend the remote otherwise 20 balls are thrown before adjustments calibrated correctly. Otherwise, so far so good.

    Overall it’s a decent Pickleball machine. I am extremely disappointed in the automatic elevation feature. There needs to be some indicator so you can record where the elevation is at when you conduct a specific drill. I am constantly wasting time trying to figure out the proper elevation for a drill. Whereas if there was an elevation indicator I would know the proper elevation for each specific drill.

    Excellent piece of equipment. Works exactly as advertised. Easy to move to set up on court or driveway. Simple to adjust control settings on machine.. Remote control is great advantage to be able to stop and start or use the oscillation feature. Using the Tutor is like drilling with a pro.
