What is a basketball auto rebounder?
A basketball auto rebounder is a training device that automatically returns a missed shot to the shooter, allowing for continuous practice without the need for a teammate or coach to retrieve the ball. Some examples of basketball auto rebounders include the SKLZ Pro Mini Hoop with Ball Rebounder and the Spalding NBA Slam Jam Over-The-Door Mini Basketball Hoop with Rebounder. These devices typically attach to a basketball hoop or can be used independently, and use a mechanical or elastic system to return the ball to the shooter.
