Hi Alois, ho Jeff,

Summer is arriving and the activity in my club has been stopped.

I have a table in my garage and since is hard to find a partner in this period,  I  thought to train with a return board.

What do you think about it, could be useful or would be better to buy a robot? (just to remember I am a beginner).

Thanks a lot and regards

Hi Donato,

I think return boards are very difficult to practice with or get any rhythm.  A simple robot would do the same job much better.

Hello Donato,

Returnboards can be expensive even when making your own. I looked into making a couple of Returnboards for myself and found that the materials would end up costing as much as a cheap robot. So I went and bought a Joola IPONG Original for about $60us and it has been a lot of fun. Look around for one, but I think you might find your best price at 

Good luck, hope that this helps.
