Feel like hitting the tennis court but can’t find anybody to play with? Sure, you could go up against the tennis cannon robot – like your great-grandfather used to – or you could step into the future and learn how to serve like Serbian tennis legend Novak Djokovic by taking serves from a drone.
Virgin Active is a health club chain that can offer you just that. Their drone, which they’ve dubbed the Drone-ovic, drops the tennis ball from various heights and angles, teaching you to mimic the infamous serve of Djokovic.
Hopefully, this is just the beginning. Who knows what kind of drone technology will be available in the future. You could play a doubles match with friends from across the globe, or take lessons from Serena Williams! Even if it isn’t anything that extreme, I doubt this will be the last time you see a drone on the tennis court.
