Newgy Robo-Pong 1050 Table Tennis Robot

NOTE: All our 1050 models include an update to ensure they'll also work with the new 40+ plastic balls (as well as with all the old balls).

Newgy Industries is the world leader in table tennis (ping pong) robots. Newgy robots are the best selling, most affordable robots in the world. Robo-Pong robots are renowned for being very user-friendly. They are simple and easy to set-up, use, take-down, and transport. Our robots are supported with thorough, well-written documentation, an extensive web site, and friendly, knowledgeable staff. You'll have everything you need to begin playing within a few minutes of opening the box.

One of a Kind Trading is the Authorised Newgy distributor for all of Australia, so you can be assured of a genuine product and great support.

This is one of the latest Newgy robots! This is one smart robot. Revolutionary digital controls mean easy, exact regulation of ball speed, wait time, and landing spot. Normal Mode gives you simple manual control over each function. In Drill Mode, run any of the 64 drills stored on the controller. Use PC Mode to create and save drills using a simple interface, then run those drills direct from your PC. Setup Mode lets you calibrate motors to a set standard and select your desired language. Intelligent design allows selection of favored hand so drills run correctly for either right-handers or left-handers. Or tell your robot to throw balls for 5 minutes, and it will automatically calculate how many balls will be thrown in that time. Listen to what top player Samson Dubina has to say: "After training with the Canadian Olympic Team for 3 years, I know what a effective training session consist of. The Robo-Pong 2050 can perform nearly every drill that a 2500 training partner can perform."

The Robo-Pong 1050 is identical in every way to the 2050 except it doesn't have the Recycling Net System. Purchase the inexpensive Ball Catch Net separately for ball capture and manual recycling. Or later on, upgrade to full 2050 capabilities with the Recycling Net Upgrade Kit. The 1050's Ball Bucket holds 200 balls for several minutes of non-stop play. Position the robot anywhere on top of table or mount it in our optional Robo-Caddy to get a variety of angles and trajectories. Retrieve stray balls quickly and easily with the optional Pong-Pal.

Who needs a robot?
No doubt everyone can benefit from the use of a robot, if they use it sensibly. Some of the great benefits of table tennis robots are outlined below, so if you want to be convinced, or need to convince your parents or coach that a robot is worthwhile, read on and you will see the greatest benefits.

#1 Ideal for practicing, fine-tuning and speeding up your strokes
Assuming you have learnt the basic strokes, you need to practice them to get better. Robots are ideal for this, because they have the ability to give you the same ball over and over again, allowing you to (1) practice the stroke, (2) fine-tune the stroke, (3) speed it up once you have mastered it and (4) see what effects some minor adjustment can make.

A real practice partner will almost certainly not give you the same ball continuously, so if you start missing you will not know if the ball came a little different, or if you made an error in you stroke or footwork. Of course a real practice partner will also likely run out of energy or will get bored...something you do not need to worry about with a robot!

#2 Makes table tennis fun and good for your health, especially for kids
If you are keen to get your own or other kids interested in table tennis, then a robot is a real treat. Kids love this sort of thing. You can use it as a treat after some serious training, or as a demo to get new kids interested, or just have it around as a bit of fun. At starting prices similar to games consoles, surely the use of a robot is a lot healthier for kids, instead of sitting in front of a monitor for hours!

#3 Exercise and Health
If you thought table tennis does not require much fitness or endurance, think again! Once you have learned some of the basic strokes you will realise you need a lot more than just an arm movement to play a proper stroke, and you need to move your feet to get into position to play your strokes properly. A robot setup to oscillate or programmed to shoot out balls to specific locations, can feed you balls all over the table, over and over again, at a speed and frequency of your choice. This will give you a great workout, for either losing weight or gaining fitness and/or endurance. Not only will the weight loss and improvement in fitness/endurance improve your game, but it will no doubt improve your coordination and strokes enormously as well.

#4 A great aid for Group Coaching
After speaking to a coach who does a lot of group coaching, it is clear how valuable a robots can be. To keep costs down, only very simply robots can make group coaching so much easier, and require a lot less helpers or other coaches. You can simply set the robots up for a particular stroke that the kids need to learn, and allow them to practice it over and over again, while you walk around the group and offer advice where needed. In this case a few smaller robots, costing only a few hundred dollars each, can be much more valuable then a single more complex unit.

#5 Improve footwork and coordination
Apart from allowing you to practice your individual strokes, most robots can be set to oscillate or even programmed to shoot out balls to specific locations. This can be highly valuable to practice your footwork, and speed it up once you have mastered the basics. This again is especially useful for kids, and their coordination is still developing, and footwork can be taught right from the start.

#6 To play when no partner is available
Although a robot is no substitute for a partner to play with, it sure is a lot better than not being able to play at all!

#7 Practice to handle a weakness or a trouble shot from an opponent
For those that play competition, you will know everyone has a weakness. Once an opponent find this, and has the ability to use it against you, it can mean the end of the game. A robot can be setup to play the balls you have trouble with, so you can practice it over and again, until you you turn it into a strength.

Similarly other players will have trouble with a particular shot, and will try and to stop you from playing this shot. A robot can be set up to play any shot, so that you practice how to generate a particular stroke no matter what stroke your opponent gives you.

#8 Clubs facility
A club that has a robot available is a likely attraction for new players. It can be a very important facility that you can offer to your members, and can offer great benefits as outlined above.

These are the major advantages of robots, there are no doubt others that can be added to the list. Apart from the initial cost, there is no doubt a robot can be put to good use no matter what level or style player you are. Robots like the Newgy 540 are priced similar to a games console, and would no doubt offer many more benefits and plenty of fun, so they are well worth considering.

Some reviews from internet:

Review by hitman21 on April 2, 2010:
Definetely a must buy for a serious player...otherwise why bother? 75 mph is a max speed so they say, and with random osscillation, top spin, back spin, side spin and combinations of those make each drill exciting...along with adjustable angle to get lob drills in! there are 64 drills in this easy to use pad and various ways to adjust to your skill level! worth the price? you betcha, and i only find fault in back spin drills...dont see why they fly into the net so easily...but i just do a normal setting for them then. otherwise, you will surely get better with this item and it is easily assembled and user friendly!

External Review on February 25, 2010
Just got it today, played with it for an hour. No problems at all. Digital control is great, but the real gem is you can set to random POSITION and random SPEED, which is much more difficult than playing predictable sweeping robots like SuperMaster or older Newgy 1040. Imagine shot goes long left with high topspin, another short right with low topspin, etc, randomly. Pretty realistic opponent. How does it work? 1) First you choose top or back spin (with or without sidespin). 2) Then you choose either fixed position or run in random oscillation mode and/or random speed mode. I recommend starting off with fixed position to get used to robot. Then set random POSITION. Play with that a bit. Then turn on random SPEED too. Now it's a strong unpredictable opponent! There is no paddle movement to give you hint. The head oscillation is completely silent, so you can't "game" the system by trying to hear how many clicks it turned. The top speed on this thing is pretty fast. They say 75mph at the "30" setting. I set it to 2 balls per sec at max speed just to see what happens. Picture a guy covering his head and running for cover...hahaha... And yes, people are correct. The backspin on faster speeds is so incredibly strong, you have to dial back the speed to be realistic. Or setup the head to "serve" the backspin to you. Lastly, make sure you buy the Catch Net II + Side Nets for $80. Well worth money since it has funnel at bottom for easy refills. It took me 30 mins to put together, a bit confusing. But once done, nice product. If Rumplestiltskin asked for firstborn or Newgy 1050, I think I'd hand him firstborn.

Review by jyan on February 28, 2010
Just got 2 days ago, and am completely sold on new digital control panel. Reasons why you should drop your paycheck on this robot:

1) Programmable drill mode. The flexibility of the built-in drills are amazing! For example, one topspin drill is a sequence of 4 shots: Left short slow, Left long fast, Right short slow, Right long fast. Set to run drill either by total number of balls thrown, total minutes played, or run forever. How many under $1000 robots do you know can do that?

2) Programmable Oscillation. Oscillation control on the 1050 is effortless. Just choose the L/R sweep range at control panel.

3) Random Oscillation and Random Speed. A truly tough random opponent, except for one thing -- drills cannot alternate between topspin or backspin since it's not controlled by digital controller. So not completely human, but pretty darn good as your practice partner. And don't forget it's a single-wheel design. Not being able to toss you no-spin balls is no big deal when the flip side is being able to improve footwork on falkenberg drills. When you are serious enough to worry about no-spin balls, you can easily sell your 1050 for good price and upgrade to something like the dual-wheel AMDT TW2700-08 for $1350 with control panel adjustable head tilt. Drool.
