Hire Lobster Elite 2 Ball Machine

Equipped with all of the standard elite one-battery-operated features, the Lobster elite two's advanced triple oscillation takes match play to the next level.



Equipped with all of the standard elite one-battery-operated features, the Lobster elite two’s advanced triple oscillation takes match play to the next level.

While almost all battery powered tennis ball machines sweep randomly left to right horizontally, the Lobster elite two also oscillates vertically, giving you short and deep shots in a random pattern to provide a better physical workout. Or, choose your shot placement vertically only and horizontally only.


Triple oscillation simulates match play by combining both vertical and horizontal oscillation functions to throw balls throughout the entire court-left, right, short, and deep.

Improve your reaction time while you advance your foot speed agility.

Sky-high lobs and blistering speeds of 130 kph will take your game to new levels.

Why do we only hire out a Lobster ball machine? It’s a question we get asked a hell of a lot.

Simply put, Lobster has been the lowest maintenance and most reliable machine. The other brand we’ve tested in the past often required repairs or parts have broken. Metal sides that hold the balls in place easily break, the design means balls fall out of the top so ball capacity is actually a lot lower and parts have broken.

We’ve had our Lobster machine for a while now and other than getting the ball fluff out, we’ve had no maintenance required…and its used regularly. We couldn’t say that about any other machine we’ve tried.

If you want a machine that will last, the brand you want is Lobster.
