Lobster’s elite one is for beginner and intermediate players and is built with enhanced features.  Shot-wise, these include the ability to deliver faster speeds and greater spin, as well as higher arcing lobs.  The elite one also has multiple power options, including an upgraded battery version that provides 4-6 hours of run time.  This machine comes with an elite 2-function remote control.


Enjoy playing against the Lobster elite one tennis machine's advanced features, including:

Full corner-to-corner random oscillation will help you work on your forehands and backhands.

60-degree lobs, a feature not available on any other battery-operated tennis ball machine, will help you practice your overheads.

Improve your reaction time with ball speeds up to 80 miles per hour.

Perfect your ability to return whatever comes your way with our heavy top and backspin feature.

"High Spin" is standard equipment - no need to pay extra. Lobster provides adjustable unmatched heavy top and underspin.

If you think your game could benefit from triple oscillation, which moves you throughout the entire court, find out more about our elite two Lobster tennis machine.

Lobster Sports offers multiple power options for both at-home and for training on the go. If you practice at public courts or are always on the move, one of our elite one battery machine options is for you. We offer both our standard internal battery machine and an external battery option where the battery pack is carried separately. Along with making the machine lighter for lifting and transporting, the external battery offers the convenience of leaving your elite in your vehicle and simply bringing the battery pack inside to charge. If you have a home court or access to a court with power, our all-electric elite prevents you from ever having to charge your machine! Without an internal battery, it runs solely on our plug-in electric power pack and supplies endless training time. If you want the best of both worlds, purchase one of our battery options along with an electric power pack, which will give you the freedom to use either the battery or electricity to power your machine. All the power options are visible once you add a machine to the cart.

The elite one is made in the USA and is covered by Lobster’s 2 year warranty.

Lobster Elite one

At first it was confusing because there isn’t a manual to explain how spin affects power. The machine doesn’t really provide 80 mph but when maximum spin is used it still becomes difficult to return- as if the speed were there. Also, you have to be careful not to synchronize the time between feeds and the horizontal rotation or else the ball is always released at the same part of the cycle. With time I’m learning how to use it though

Purchased my Ball machine and My Son Loves it!!! What really impressed me was Joe and Leo in the Technical Department. Wanted to get some feedback on how the machine works since I've never used one and the exceeded My Expectations. Most Companies after the sale truly don't want to engage with the customer if he or she has questions. My Wife and I must have called half a dozen times and time after time Joe and Leo were so patient and willing to help. WOW.......I'm a Blue Collar guy and this was an extremely large purchase And I'm so Glad our Money went to a company with people who Truly believe in Customer Service. Lobster is a First Class Company who still believes in Customer service after the sale!!!! WORLD CLASS COMPANY Would highly Recommend

Great tennis ball machine.

I couldn't be happier with this machine. I decided to use regular tennis balls, not Tretorn and had a great workout. High lobs, and fun working on groundstrokes and volleys. I was smart buying the external batter because it makes lifting the machine in and out of my trunk easier I leave the machine in my garage and bring the battery pack in the house to charge, where I can keep see when it's fully charged. I couldn't be happier.

Based on my first two weeks with the ball machine; I extremely happy with the Elite One ball machine. In closing, the staff and the company as hole are one best ambassadors for the sport of tennis. Sincerely, Hasan David Anderson-Bey
