Frequently Asked Questions:

Question: What do I get in the Pitch It Up Cricket Training Aid box?
Answer: Everything you need to train with your Pitch It Up in standalone mode, is in the box (with the exception of batteries if you choose to not use the AC
Adaptor that is included). The Tripod may be purchased separately.

Question: Do I have to buy extra balls?

Answer: That's up to you. There are 8 x light-weight yellow balls provided in the Pitch It Up Cricket Training Aid box. If you'd like to load and train with more than 8 balls, then you will also need to purchase the Ball Set (20 balls).

Question: What's the recommended number of Ball Tracks?

Answer: 2 - 4 Balls Tracks are recommended for optimal system performance. There are 2 ball tracks included with your Cricket Training Aid.  Additional Ball Tracks may be purchased if desired.

Question: What is the speed of the ball launch?
Answer: There are 2 x Speed modes of operation : Low (36 - 41 km/hr) and High (38 - 44 km/hr). The speed buttons are on each wheel and adjust the speed of each wheel independently. This allows you to add extra curve to the on- and off-spin of the ball and helps train your cricketer to watch the ball more closely.

Question: How far can the ball launch?
Answer: There are 4 adjustable positions that determine the distance (4 - 13m)
& height (0.5- 2.0m) of ball delivery.

Question: What is the time between ball launches?
Answer: The time between each ball launched is 5 - 6 seconds, so Pitch It Up can deliver between 600 - 720 balls per hour when used continuously.

Question: Do the balls launch straight or spin?
Answer: The choice is yours! The Left and Right Wheels have 3 button positions each. When you place both the Left and Right Wheel button in the central position, this will allow the balls to be launched straight towards the player.
If you place the Left and Right Wheel buttons in any alternate combination, the ball will spin towards or away from the player.

Question: Can I use other balls in my Pitch It Up Machine?
Answer: No. The Pitch It Up machine is only designed for use with the Pitch It Up light-weight balls. Other brands of balls are heavier and may be larger so will
not project to the same distance. They will not provide the spin, curve or ball flight experienced with the Pitch It Up light-weight balls.  Balls of other brands and designs are not suitable for use and may cause damage to the mechanisms.

Question: What material are the balls made from?
Answer: The balls are made from Polyurethane. Please do not allow babies, children or pets to chew or ingest.

Question: What is the weight of each ball?
Answer: 32 grams

Question: Will I void my warranty if I use other brands of balls in my Pitch It Up machine?
Answer: Yes.

Question: Can I use the Pitch It Up indoors?
Yes. If you have sufficient space available the Pitch It Up Training Aid and light-weight balls may be used indoors.  Obviously, you need to be mindful of other objects around the home that may be considered obstacles or may get damaged by projectiles.

Question: What do I need to make sure I do before turning ON my Pitch It Up?
Answer: Read the instructions and watch the video Getting Started (above) to ensure the machine is constructed correctly. Before turning your Pitch It Up to the ON position, make sure no one is standing in front of the ball launcher.

Question: Do the wheels keep spinning if I put my hand or finger inside the front of the machine?
Answer: No. An important safety feature of the Pitch It Up Machine is that the wheels will stop spinning when there is even a small resistance placed on them.
Should children put their hand on the wheels, they cannot get fingers caught inside the machine as the wheel will not continue to spin.

Question: Can I use my Pitch It Up standalone?
Answer: Yes. The Pitch It Up can be used standalone or can be placed on a tripod.

Question: Can I put my Pitch It Up on a tripod?
Answer: Yes. You can place the Pitch It Up on a tripod using the standard screw fitting provided with the tripod. The screw hole at the bottom of the machine
is compatible with a standard camera tripod connection. If choosing a brand other than Pitch It Up, customers are to ensure their tripod has a central leg brace locking collar system and a load carrying capacity of no less than 2.5kg for stability.

Question: How heavy is my Pitch It Up Machine?
Answer: When loaded with 8 balls, 2 tracks and the Top Track, the Pitch It Up weight is approx 2kg making it very portable, even for kids.

Question: Why are the balls getting caught in the ball launcher?
Answer: When the batteries are starting to run down, the balls may start to drop inside the ball launcher section more often. Replace the batteries.

Question: How do I get balls out of the ball launcher?
Answer: Please watch the video called Clearing the Ball Launcher (above) for a simple step-by-step guide on how to perform this safely. DO NOT pull balls from the rear of the Ball Launcher as you may break the Ball Detector mechanism.

Question: Why does the first ball not go as far?

Answer: The first ball is called the "warm up" ball. It is launched when the wheels and ball detector mechanisms are getting ready and are not at capacity speed, so the launch will be smaller. The second ball will be launched as per your chosen modes.

Question: Why is the red LED light ON (lit up) at the front of the machine?
Answer: The red LED indicator light will light up when you are connected to power, or have batteries installed and the Pitch It Up Machine is switched to the ON position but no balls are detected by the Ball Detector. It helps you to remember to turn it OFF after use.

Question: Is there any indication when a ball is about to launch from the machine?

Answer: Yes. The red LED Indicator on the front of the Pitch It Up lights up just prior to the ball being launched from the machine.

Question: I broke the buckle on the Ball Track, can I still use it?

Answer: It may be possible to use the Ball Track with a broken buckle but replacement is recommended.

Question: Can I use the Pitch It Up on sand or at the beach?
Answer: No. It is not recommended for use in sandy areas as the sand may clog up the mechanisms.

Question: Can I use the Pitch It Up when the ground is damp, wet or it is raining?
Answer: DO NOT use the Pitch It Up machine in damp, wet or raining conditions or anywhere there is water. It is not safe to use any electrical device around water. In addition, the water may impact performance and may cause internal motor failure.
