What are "Patterns of Play"?
"Patterns of Play" are the X's and O's used in many different sports (football and basketball for example) to map out the tactics and strategies to use in particular situations, and against particular opponents. The BallBOPPer is designed to simulate the "Patterns of Play" for different tennis playing styles, such as: Aggressive Baseliners, Counter Punchers, All Court players, etc. The primary purpose of the BallBOPPer App is to select and run the drills and patterns you wish to practice, and to design custom drills and patterns in order to practice the skills, tactics and strategy required for a particular opponent.
