(Houston, TX – May 15th, 2020) Thomas Fields, Founder & C.E.O. of GRIND Inc., a sports technology and athletic equipment provider, recently announced the launch of “GRIND Machine”, the world’s first portable basketball shooting machine designed to enhance independent drill training- anywhere and anytime.

The revolutionary shooting machine has been proven to be effective in improving players’ catch & shoot efficiency, footwork, balance, explosion and follow through, while increasing player creativity & basketball IQ.
GRIND Machine allows the player to shoot up to 500 shots an hour by capturing rebounds and automatically passing the ball back to the player at any given spot on the court- including the NCAA 3pt regulation range. GRIND Basketball is equipped with a 12-foot net around the rim that strategically forces players to put more of an arch on their shot, translating to a higher percentage of made shots. This technique in repetition aims to increase muscle memory.

Fields believes this might be the most innovative, yet ideal shooting machine ever designed – “You practice ten times more efficiently using the shooting machine, so it was important to design this for practical use. I wanted to build something that basketball players, coaches, and trainers would love, because they could use it wherever and whenever.” said (Thomas Fields, Founder/Ceo of GRIND).
