Tennis Hit Zone Q&A with Elliott Pettit, a tennis pro at the famed
Billie Jean King National Tennis Center

1. As an owner/ coach, what is your initial response to the Hit Zone?

I find the Hit Zone to be a wonderful teaching tool and incredibly useful in helping children and other
beginners understand the mechanics of a swing.

2. What is your player's initial response to the Hit Zone?

Our Red Ball players absolutely love using the Hit Zone! We always use stations for our Red classes and
the kids are always running to try and be at the Hit Zone station first.

3. Does the Hit Zone increase hand/eye coordination?

When the Hit Zone is tuned to a certain setting, it allows the ball to move up and down slightly as well as
oscillate in the air pocket. I find this to help children focus on where they are swinging as well as to improve
their hand/eye coordination.

4. Does the Hit Zone increase concentration?

When the Hit Zone is tuned to a certain setting, it allows the ball to move up and down slightly as well as
oscillate in the air pocket. I find this to help children focus on where they are swinging as well as to improve
their hand/eye coordination.

5. Would you include the Hit Zone as part of your daily practice?

We do use the Hit Zone as a part of our daily tennis classes and the classes and players are better for it!

6. Would you recommend the Hit Zone to other coaches, players, academies?

YES!

7. How do you find operating the Hit Zone?

Operating the Hit Zone is very easy, we have children as young as 6 who are able to successfully turn it on,
off, and adjust the air stream to their desired height.

8. Are the operating instructions easy to follow?

Yes.

9. Do you recommend Hit Zone for any age player?

I recommend the Hit Zone for anyone who is looking to "groove" their ideal swing path and get a better
understanding of what their body is doing during each swing.

"The Hit Zone has been fantastic with our kids! Both kids and pros alike love what it brings to the lessons and
everyone is looking for a way to incorporate it into what they're doing. I recommend the Hit Zone for anyone
who is looking to "groove" their ideal swing path and get a better understanding of what their body is doing
during each swing."
