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.

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.
