“My father says that if I hit 2,500 balls each day, I’ll hit 17,500 balls each week, and at the end of one year I’ll have hit nearly one million balls. He believes in math. Numbers, he says, don’t lie. A child who hits one million balls each year will be unbeatable.”
– Andre Agassi

About the manufacturer
Giuseppe Spedaliere’s passion for tennis mixed with his son Alessandro attitude for computer science and programming are the fertile ground from which Dragonet revolutionary idea grew.
Giuseppe has always been passionate about tennis, his favorite hobby, but unfortunately years of incorrect practice of the one handed backhand led him to a bad elbow injury. It’s from such sad situation that the core idea came to his mind.
Fully conscious of his son’s passion and in-depth knowledge of computer science and programming, Giuseppe asked Alessandro the most simple and yet smart question: was it possible for him to design an improved version of the traditional “ball machine”? One that needed no court to be used. One that could be used to train everywhere and could be kept in their garage. A tool to work with any time he could in order to finally master that backhand technique.
That’s where Dragonet came from! A one of a kind machine, ready to revolutionize the very idea of tennis training.
Dragonet is a patented product in accordance with United States and European Community’s regulations and directives.
