Playmate Ball Machines
We're proud to be among the top sellers of Playmate ball machines and we'll strive to earn your respect and satisfaction.
Just like Active Sports, Playmate is a family-owned and operated business with a strong commitment to their tennis products. Since 1973, Playmate has maintained its status as the manufacturer of not only the most advanced tennis ball machines but also the most dependable. Unmatched satisfaction and quality is the reason Playmate ball machines have an overwhelming presence in country clubs, tennis clubs, colleges, universities, and private tennis courts everywhere.
Whether you're a novice player looking to improve your game, a private tennis court owner or a teaching pro or coach, there is a Playmate ball machine for you.
The battery-powered Playmate Portable Series is the only “do-it-yourself” upgradeable ball machine available. You can start with the base model, the Half-Volley and when you’re ready, add the 2-line oscillator with random ball placement and commercial remote control. Both upgrades are available from Active Sports and are easy to install yourself. If you’re ready for these features now, just buy the fully-loaded Volley.
Playmate has a very robust line of Professional grade tennis ball machines starting with the Ace, the basic professional model, to the more sophisticated Chameleon series models. The Chameleon Series from Playmate allows you to easily upgrade the features of your ball machine within seconds by simply unplugging one controller and plugging in the other. Tennis clubs can purchase one ball machine and use the simplest controller, the Smash box, for rentals and a more powerful controller, like the Genie box, for teaching or running clinics.
All Chameleon series ball machines are also compatible with the Freedom Kit, which allows the control box to operate wirelessly from across the court.
Playmate Professional series ball machines are all compatible with the Playmate Serve Lift. This is a great addition to any tennis facility offering practice with the most important shot in tennis, the serve return. The elevation of the ball machine also creates a realistic high slice for a truly game-like environment.
