Advances in engineering and robotic technology have revolutionized the original Knight Trainer, released in 2008. The complete redesign of the original badminton trainer is now highly programmable, more accurate, 50% more powerful, and far more versatile than the original.

Developed in Canada and the US, the new Knight Trainer Pro can provide drills used by professional Badminton players. The control tablet and software create drills for all levels of play - from gentle drills for beginners to grueling intensive sessions for the most advanced players.

The Knight Trainer Pro allows players to quickly advance all aspects of badminton and reach the best of their abilities in much less time.  Video demonstrations of the Knight Trainer Pro in action can be found at

Players and coaches who tested and trained with the Knight Trainer Pro during the development phase declared that the Knight Trainer Pro had immediately helped improve shots and court movements.

From the pros to regular players and coaches, all confirm the advantages and effectiveness of the Knight Trainer Pro. Robbyn Hermitage, Badminton Pro simply declared “A coach/player win-win for sure!”

The Knight Trainer Pro features a control tablet that quickly customizes, creates and saves training drills. You can choose speed, direction, tilt, and timing for each shot and this incredible Badminton Training Device will automatically make the changes to feed your drill. Each player can have customized settings. Virtually every Badminton shot can be recreated, including smashes, drives, clears, drops, net shots, and short or long serves. 

The machine transports easily and sets up in under 5 min, and works with both feather and nylon shuttles.

With its ease of transport, storage, setup, and control, the Knight Trainer Pro is also ideal for schools, Badminton associations, clubs and Athletic centers.

In 2008, when Black Knight unveiled the original Knight Trainer, the world’s first badminton training machine, it introduced a new paradigm to Badminton Training and was viewed as a game-changing training machine.

Today Allan Sklar of Black Knight Canada shares his excitement for the redesigned Knight Trainer Pro “After 5 years of development we are thrilled and honestly astonished by the capabilities of the Knight Trainer Pro. It blows past expectations, and will open up a new world of opportunities for badminton players everywhere!  Black Knight has tested the trainer with players of all levels from beginner to expert, and ages from 8 to 80. The benefits are immediate and the results are fantastic.”
