Description of Existing Solutions 1). Ball Hopper : A commonly used device that picks up and stores tennis balls. Hovering the basket over the ball, and then pushing downwards allows the ball to squeeze through the rails. It is capable of storing 75 balls at one time. 2). Tube Ball Retriever : Place the tube over the ball and pushing in a downwards motion forces the ball to squeeze into the tube and remain there. Has a capacity of only 18 balls. 3). Deluxe Club Cart : Is used to store balls during practices. Has the ability of storing up to 325 balls. However, it does not aid in the actual process of picking up balls. 4). Roller Picker : A modification of the Ball Hopper. Instead of constant up and downward motion, jus roll the Roller Picker over the ball. This will force the ball to squeeze through the gaps and stay inside the cylinder.

Unformatted text preview: 5). Ball Mower : Amount of work required is same as that of the Roller Picker. Roll this object over the ball. The ball will go under the basket and after going through the cylinder, it will end up in the basket. 6). Slanted Court : The tennis court will be slanted. This will force the balls to roll down towards the fence. Since all the balls will be in two general areas, picking up the balls will be easier. Please ignore the fact that the image is rotated 90 degrees. 7). Ball-Retaining Tennis Net : The design of the net is such that when the ball hits the net, the ball goes through one layer of the net and is stuck in the net. So, if the ball hits the net, the ball will remain in the net, thus making it easier to pick up any balls that hit the net. This design however only works if the ball hits the net....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
