Ball Machine - Rules of Use

Free for any current adult member during the season.  You can reserve the ball machine for a maximum of 1 hour/day. Repetition is the best form of practice which makes the ball machine your best hitting partner. Practice all your shots by controlling the speed, spin, feed and elevation by remote control.

Youth members may only use the ball machine under adult supervision.

Non-members may not use the ball machine unless accompanied by an OMTC tennis coach.

Once you have paid your current membership check our Events/Events Calendar for a ball machine tutorial.  Alternatively, contact one of our board members who will provide you with a tutorial on the use of the ball machine.
