What is MultiBall and why does my child need to try it?

Tired of your kids glued to their phones or spending way too many hours playing video games? We’ve got a solution to help get your kids up and exercising in no time, thanks to a little invention called MultiBall. A Munich-based company, Fun With Balls, has found a way to combine physical activity with gamification creating a fun atmosphere for those immersed in this culture of gaming and technology. More exciting, Towpath Tennis is the 2nd club in the country that is operating one of these systems!

What is MultiBall? 
The MultiBall wall at Towpath Tennis.
Imagine a backboard wall with projected games displayed on it to hit targets on. That’s it! Simple (yet very complex). This award-winning gaming console consists of a console and a sensor frame, which detects ball impacts. The Towpath Tennis staff actually created the wall itself to fit inside the frame and had to integrate and work with German technology to pull off this one-of-a-kind experience.

The drive for the Fun With Balls company was for them to quit fighting the technology takeover, but to combine it with sports to give it the cool and fun factor it deserves. MultiBall creates a playful space to enable kids (and people of all ages and skill levels) to exercise while focused on playing and interacting with digital games designed for their sport of choice…duh tennis!

To test out MultiBall, you can now reserve time in ½ hour increments for $25. Check out what’s in store for the future of tennis for our kids!
