WallJAM: rebound ball game set to get youngsters active

0 0
A novel interactive rebound wall for ball games has made its debut on BT Sport’s Football Tonight show.

Former England star Michael Owen was the first to test his talents against a wall designed especially for the show by WallJAM.

Entrepreneur Tim Worboys developed the technology with support from Innovate UK. WallJAM’s array of impact sensors measure accuracy, speed and power in striking the ball against targets, all timed against the clock.

Tim wants to encourage more young people to take up active sport. He first approached Innovate UK in 2012, inspired by an idea that he could reinvent in digital form what children had been doing for decades to improve their hand-eye-foot coordination – hitting a ball against a wall.
