We’ve supplied hundreds of tennis ball machines over the last 15 years, so we’re not afraid to admit that we know a thing or two about them!
If you’ve already invested in a tennis ball machine, you’ll know that it wasn’t an insignificant purchase, with the cost of top of the range ball machine running into thousands of pounds. The most important thing to remember is that like a car or boiler, regular routine maintenance / servicing along with careful handling / storage is key to ensuring that your electronic tennis partner will provide you with years of reliable service.
As spring (finally) begins, now is a great time to think about servicing your tennis machine, ready for another seasons use. We can arrange a service for most UK models of tennis ball machines, including Lobster Elite, Playmaker and Tennis Tutors. We can also service or repair the now discontinued range of Lobster 201, 301 and 401 tennis machines. In some circumstances, we can even provide spare parts and full instructions detailing how to replace any worn or broken parts yourself.
If you’d like more information on how to go about getting your tennis ball machine repaired or serviced, contact us on 01858 545789 or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any ‘symptoms’ and we’ll get back to you.
We’ve been focusing on bringing you some great new products over the last six months.
Today we’ll continue this trend and highlight some excellent products that’ll enhance any athletics track and field.
We’re frequently asked if we can supply new tennis posts to fit an existing set of sockets.
As you can see from the link above, the answer is of course – yes!
The good news is that tennis post sockets can often be re-used, saving you the time, hassle and expense of having to re-install a new set into your tennis court.
However, the bad news is… not all tennis posts are manufactured to the same specifications.
Fortunately, help is only a few mouse clicks and tape measurements away.
If you’d like us to supply you with a set of tennis posts to fit your existing sockets, simply provide us with a few measurements of your current tennis posts and sockets (depth, width, colour, shape etc) and we’ll be able to find a set of posts that will fit your current sockets perfectly.
Simply fill in this form:
…and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.
If you’d like further advice on any of our tennis posts (including items such as winders, handles, headline wires etc), please contact us on 01858 545789.
It’s been a long, cold winter!
As the mild weather starts to slowly move in, now is a good time to start checking the condition of outdoor grounds furniture, such as cricket sight screens and wicket covers.
If your sight screen or cover hasn’t fared so well over the winter or has simply just reached the end of its natural life, now is a good time to order a replacement so you can maximise it’s usage over the summer months.
Plus, if you’re within 125 miles of our office in Leicester, we can also deliver and erect sight screens and mobile wicket covers for you! For more information on our installation services, please contact us on 01858 545789.
