SaddleBrooke Ranch, Simon X machine for Pickleball

the SBRPBA was instrumental in its purchase and providing instruction on the operation of the new Simon X pickleball machine. Mark trained about 75 club members so they can use the machine safely and successfully. The machine has a chart with suggested settings for various practice scenarios. Therefore, players can adjust the machine as necessary for their specific training needs.

The machine is battery-operated and has a remote control. The advantage of Simon X over the older club machine is that it has a number of controls for ball delivery. It can deliver a ball as fast as 70 mph or go as slow as 5 mph and can impart a topspin or underspin (cut) ball. Other unique features are its ability to lob, make a drop shot, dink, or deliver balls with its stealth oscillator. Currently, Simon X is the most powerful and advanced Pickleball machine available. The SaddleBrooke Ranch Pickleball Association is fortunate to have it available to use.
