Hi PingSkills. We have a problem of collecting the balls for the multi-ball training. The place where we play table tennis is wide and it's a public place so that there're many things there. The problem is, it make us difficult to collect the balls as it'll go bounces separately under the table, in the toilet, etc and sometimes the balls disappeared. So how to avoid it and make us collect the balls easier without go on chasing and searching the balls ? Because only me and my friend that play multi-ball so that no one can collect the balls during the multi-ball training. Would you please solve my problem ? As it's very important so that we can play more rather than tired of collecting the balls. Please for the answer, Thank you very much :D

Hi Frendy,

You could try to construct a barrier around the table area.  You can use cardboard boxes to do this. Or if you have something like a net you can put this up at the end of the table to stop the balls from going anywhere.

There're many cardboard boxes hear, so how to make the barrier with it ?

Just put them up as a barrier or you can cut out feet from them and then use the main part as a wall.

Hello Pingskills members,

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would let those of you who have not found a way to collect balls after multi-ball practice. I did a search on collection nets and there are a few to choose from. I went ahead and bought one from a place called ",Paddle Palace" here in the states. It was not to expensive and you can buy some that are cheaper. But you get what you pay for and the one I bought looks to be made a lot better than the cheaper ones from IPONG/Joola.

Looking forward to receiving it and when I do I will report back on how I like it.

Hello all good Pingskills members,

Received my Ball Collection Net today. All I can say is WOW, this thing is so cool!!! I can now practice my serves as long as I want to and with the collection net the balls go right into a bucket. Then I recycle them in a little basket I have and start all over again. Ever since I received it I have been playing my serves for 3 hours now and can't stop!!!

If you don't have a regular practice partner. I highly recommend getting one of these, it does not have to be like the one I bought. But the reason I bought the one I did is because of the construction of it is way better than the IPONG/Joola model. The reviews on the IPONG/Joola model are not because of its attachments are not well made and people complain about how flimsy the connection parts are that connect it to the table.

Out of 10 stars, I would give it 8.5 to 9.0 only because I know there are better collection nets out there. But you will have to spend a lot more than what I did.
