Kanon Customer testimonials

I have used Kanon machines in my coaching program for many years.

The Kanon will feed balls with pinpoint accuracy essential for constant repetition when improving strokes.

The automatic side-to-side oscillator and spin adaptor will introduce a more rigorous and demanding element into the session, combining footwork and agility into all the practised strokes.

The serving simulator reproduces the service, forehand, backhand, or top spin to produce a good return, vital in any game.

The Kanon is extremely useful for players and groups at all levels.
