A distinctive feature of RTS Rebounders is the ability to alter the rebounding panel position in order to practice a variety of different shots. Here are some of our suggestions for each panel position. We're sure you will come up with others!
20° Position – the ball will rebound with high loft. This is perfect for beginners by providing ample time for the player to react and get in position for the next shot. For more advanced players, this angled position provides a way to practice overhead smashes.
10° Position - the ball will rebound with a slight loft. This is an excellent all-around position for practicing ground stokes, up-close volleys, and dinks.
0° (Vertical Position) - the ball will rebound with no loft. Similar to the 10° position, the same variety of ground stoke, volley, and dinks shots can be practiced.
-10° and -20° Positions – the ball will rebound in a downward angle. The ball flight replicates a shot by an opponent aimed at a player's feet as if they were standing at the edge of the no-volley zone ("the kitchen" line).
