Table Tennis Robot
Newgy Robo-Pong® is an interactive robot used to play and practice table tennis anytime, without a partner!
A robot replaces a person at the other end of the table so its like having an extra person delivering table tennis balls at exactly the same speed, spin and direction; ball after ball. The player can repeat the same stroke over and over again and so improve their game. The machine has 64 preset programmes as well as the ability to be set manually according to the ability of the person using the machine. Our coaches set the machine to a slightly harder, faster setting for the second session who are more accomplished players.
NEWGY INDUSTRIES is the world leader in table tennis robot machines. That is why we bought this model. We have been very fortunate in getting a SPORT ENGLAND grant for two robots and ten table surrounds which helps to contain any loose TT balls that are missed when practicing on the machine. At the moment we are only operating with one machine. We hope to introduce the second machine at the end of 2012 so watch this space!
