Check out this great video of our ping pong ball picker
For several years, the table tennis ball picker upper market was dominated by only two types of devices; the tube and the scooper. Mypingpongbuddy appeared to join this market in late 2010. With a unique design of net on top and other useful features, it quickly became the favorite. This strange looking ball picker upper made of a bent badminton racket with a grocery store mesh netting was the brainchild of a passionate ping pong player who got tired picking dozens of balls off the floor. His first prototype was tested successfully at Olympic TTC (now Nevada Table Tennis) in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is currently protected by Patent US 8,534,726 B2 granted on September 17, 2011.
If you have a robot or if you do multi-ball training, this is one table tennis accessory you cannot do without. You will save lots of time and energy, while at the same time, help avoid painful back injury from manually picking up hundreds of balls. This ball picker upper can capture balls under tables and chairs. It can capture more than one ball at a time, and will hold up to 100 balls. With its patented design of net on top, it keeps the net from dragging across the floor thereby reducing dust collected on the balls. With the long adjustable handle, you can pick up balls easily all around the playing area. Emptying the device is very simple and done with one hand by turning the picker upper over a bucket, or into the robot tray ( up to 7 feet high) letting the balls fall freely.
