When you’re playing pickleball, especially in an area with multiple games, it’s a given that balls will end up scattered across the courts by the end of play. Picking them all up without the assistance of any sort of tools can be tiring and backbreaking work, which is why we provide a number of pickleball-collecting solutions to make the process easier.
From rolling caddies to ball hoppers and collectors, we’ll help you figure out the best storage fit for your needs.
The Kollectaball line allows you to simply roll your way to a tidier court. Just pass the cage over pickleballs and they slide between the wires for dispensing elsewhere. This product almost feels like you’re using a lightweight lawnmower or vacuum, but it’s a lot more fun!
When we first took it to our PickleballStation courts to tidy up after clinics and open play, we were surprised to find both employees and customers jumping to do the job for us! You can’t often say that something makes chores both easier and more enjoyable. If you want an option that holds more than this model, we also carry the K-Max Ball Collector which holds up to 60 pickleballs.
If you don’t need to stash too many pickleballs, the Ballport Mini is a great way to make clean-up more efficient. At only 3.5 lbs, you can carry it around and then press it atop balls so they pass into the storage area. Two rods prevent the pickleballs from falling out.
You can then change the position of the “handles” so they become legs when you’re ready to play again for easy access to the balls. The larger version of this model, the Deluxe Pickleball Caddy, holds more and also comes with wheels so you can quickly move it around the court.
The GAMMA Pickleball Hopper is similar to the Ballport Mini, but it has a different shape and make. Its hexagonal design helps to improve durability. The carbon steel handles can be used to maneuver the hopper for gathering pickleballs or rotated around for conversion into a standing storage container.
It uses “floating wires” that prevent the structure from weakening over time and holds up to 50 pickleballs.
Our most expensive option, the Quick Cart Plus, is a sturdy and adaptable container with a huge storage capacity. With wheels and a structure that can be folded together for easy transport, it’s ideal for players on the go. The zippered upper bin holds an astounding 150 pickleballs.
The lower shelf is made of mesh so you can stash other necessities. It also comes with its own bag so it can be stored safely when not in use.
