Product/Service Summary

freebowler is an “on-the-go personalized” (non-electric and portable) cricket bowling machine which solves the limitations with the existing bowling machine regarding usability, size, power requirements, use of machine balls, and expense.

It is one of its kind accessible (take it anywhere), affordable ($500), and convenient(fits in the car) training equipment capable of producing (line, length, speed, and swing) variations with 'real cricket balls'.

freebowler aims to address these problems by developing one of it's kind low-cost and low-tech training aid that can help all cricketers to improve their skills with minimized cost, increased portability, and no electricity.
