Tennis Practice Backboards

Backboards give tennis players of all ages and ability levels the best practice partner available today – practice on your schedule and at your own pace. Did you know that you can hit more balls on a backboard in 15 minutes than you would in an entire match? Backboards come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors to fit the needs of every player and facility – private courts, country clubs, camps, municipalities, schools, colleges, military bases, homeowner associations – wherever the game is played! Our partner, Bakko, has backboards all over the world...and PlayGo co. can provide them to you!

There are many different types and styles of backboards. Most, however, fall into these categories: wood, cement block/concrete, plastic, net and fiberglass.

All backboards provide user with a great practice partner and aerobic exercise for players of all ages and ability levels from beginners to top-playing professionals.  But the quality, reliability, variety, versatility and function of today’s backboards can vary greatly. What’s the difference? Judge for yourself…Bottom line is....“You get what you pay for!”

Custom-Made Backboards   If your situation requires a unique size or specialized color combination, we can usually customize backboards using the same quality workmanship to meet your individual needs.  Universities and schools often order backboards to match school colors; for example, if the school colors are orange and black, they may order six 3 panel backboards, alternating colors of each panel in each backboard. Architects frequently order backboards to coordinate with unusual colored tennis courts or homes. Allow an additional 3 weeks for custom orders. A color chart will be furnished upon request.
