Wall ball sans wall?

Hi all,

Don't have a 9+ foot high wall at home that I can throw a ball against. Any good to be had from putting it up straight in the air at a similar height? Seems like you don't necessarily need the wall to still get some gains. Thank you for your input.

That's what I do. The wall is useful as a target to keep you honest on how high you're throwing but I don't think it adds anything more.

I do "Air Balls" with my clients when a wall is not available. Good alternative. Like John says, the wall keeps you honest. "X" marks the spot :-)
