Rally Master Tennis Equipment
Rally Master is one of the leading manufacturers of tennis backboards and is seen in country clubs and resorts around the world. Rally Master is the only backboard that comes with a 20 year warrantee, your guarantee that your backboard won’t fade in the sun or crack under years of use.
“We build flat backboards for no-nonsense, hard-core tennis and sports training,” according to the website.
Rally Master Backboards are constructed of dense but flexible, U.V. protected solid mold plastic panels and because of the solid nature of Rally Master Backboards, they can be used for other sports, such as lacrosse basketball, and soccer. The warrantee will not void under this kind of use, as with other backboard companies.
Rally Master Backboards are sold as 10 foot high, four foot wide panels that can be combined to create custom court widths. Home court owners have installed them under basketball hoops to repurpose one court for two sports. One advanced player or two beginner players can usually be accommodated on a 20 foot wide wall. Clubs and resorts install no less than 36 feet of backboard and schools have been known to use Rally Master Backboards to line the fences between courts. The effect is one professional looking court.
Decibel readings from a Rally Master Backboard indicate that the sound of the tennis ball rebounding off the wall is no louder than the sound of a tennis ball hitting a racquet and is significantly quieter than the sound of dribbling a basketball on concrete.
Other fiberglass backboards can fade under the intense U.V. rays of the sun because the color is sprayed on after the mold is set. This is not the case with Rally Master. The color and U.V. protection is mixed into the plastic before the mold is set, therefore the color is a part of the material and will not fade under years of U.V. exposure. Another advantage to solid construction backboards is that dead spots will not develop after years of practice and cracks will never appear at the seams.
Installation of your Rally Master backboard is quick and easy. The panels are attached to cross-braces, which are then attached to vertical posts using the galvanized hardware that is provided. The patent-pending mounting system allows panels to expand and contract in heat and cold, preventing stress fractures and strain where the board is secured to the braces.
The permanent net line on Rally Master Backboards with fade as it tends to with wood or fiberglass backboards. It is permanently etched into all Rally Master panels.
“Whether you're a beginner, looking for the best way to build a sound, fundamental tennis stroke, or a seasoned veteran looking for a terrific aerobic workout, Rally Master Backboards are ready when you are!” – Rally Master.
The advantages of tennis backboards in your home or club court are countless. Singles and doubles can all benefit from the technological innovations in today’s backboards.
