Lisa Dodson, former WTA pro tennis player, is the creator of this revolutionary tool that is equally good for children and adults.
Your secret weapon
Have you ever experienced an "AHA" moment?
You've tried and tried and suddenly everything comes together and what you've been trying to do finally happens .... perfectly? It's the most surprising and wonderful moment but there's just one problem .... you don't know how to repeat it!
That's where ServeMaster comes in; your secret weapon for creating the AHA moment both quickly and easily. ServeMaster takes you through how the serve motion feels with the right grip. Once you "get it" you can repeat your skills until you master your serve!
Serve becomes simple
In sport, FEELING is the most powerful tool for learning
Efficiency of movement and relaxation is the key to making all athletic movements work. However, the tennis nerve is a complex series of movements that make relaxation seem impossible! Serve is also often misunderstood and often performed incorrectly so we need to keep the learning really simple. And with ServeMaster, it's as simple as 1,2,3,4.
Teach your body how to move
Everything with ServeMaster is done WITHOUT a ball. All you have to do is: keep the right grip and make the ServeMaster move in a fluid motion path. FEELING the correct trajectory of the serve swing and allowing your body to move in its natural way is the key! Once you get the feel, you'll be able to start transferring the information to a rack and start hitting serves like never before.
ServeMaster can also be used for groundstrokes, smashes, movement drills, dynamic warm-ups, stretching and strength training too!
Which variant should I choose? Weight and length
Alycia Parks, WTA Pro Tennis Player
I started using ServeMaster when I was 11 years old. Now I'm a professional tennis player and I still use it every day.
Vega 8 years
I serve 60 times a day with ServeMaster and have noticed a big improvement in just a few weeks. Yesterday I played a match and felt so confident when I served.

Frequently asked questions & answers
Can I really change my serve?
Yes! Players often make their biggest and fastest improvements when they practice without the ball. When you play or hit, you concentrate on one end goal: hitting the ball over the net and into the court. To effectively change, you need to feel and repeat the right movement over and over again without this constraint. Producing the right movement is the goal! With ServeMaster, you will see significant improvements with your serve.
Is ServeMaster just for serving?
No, it is also fantastic for practicing and refining smash, forehand and backhand, slice and volley. It can be used for foot and movement drills, stretching, strength and endurance exercises and for overall general coordination and athletic skill.

The story of ServeMaster
"Because the serve is so difficult to teach, I decided to develop a simple tool with all the right components"
Lisa Dodson, born in New York, is a former world-ranked professional tennis player with a WTA top ranking of #270 for singles and has an extensive background in tennis teaching. She played both basketball and tennis for the University of North Carolina and graduated in 1979 with a BA in Political Science.
She has held sectional rankings in women's singles and doubles in East Florida and Northern California and has been a USTA Nor Cal 35-, 40- and 45-section stroke player.
Lisa started teaching because she loves the game. Starting at age 6, as the youngest in a tennis-playing family, "my parents couldn't get me off the court." Her first real job was teaching juniors at a country club in New York at age 16. She became a full-time coach in 1979, then played professionally from 1982 to 1986 and resumed teaching again in 1989. She is a USPTA-certified Elite Professional and an MTMCA L3-certified professional. She also served on the USPTA Eastern Board from 2014-2016.
"I love motivating and figuring out how to get great results from each player." That's how ServeMaster came to be. When Lisa was injured in 2009, she finally had the time to develop her tennis serve training tool. "Because serve is so difficult to teach, I decided to develop a simple tool with all the right components". So after 18 months of development, research and work, ServeMaster was patented and on the market.
Today, Lisa runs her company and is the Sports Director of Tennis Operations at Shenorock Shore Club in Rye, NY, and The Saw Mill Club in Mt. Kisco, NY.
