An Easy Product Solution to a Common Tennis Problem
One of the most tedious aspects when playing any ball sport game is having to constantly go down and pick up a ball after its fallen to continue the game. Recognizing that this could be an issue for most players, designer Kim Seunghyun and Yu Yunjo designed the ‘Pick a Ball’ Tennis Picker! Our Texas product design agency loves how this product takes the traditional design of a tennis racket but includes a Velcro sticker on the outer rim of the racket. Once having to need to pick up your tennis ball, pressing down upon the ball with the racket will lift the ball up for you to easily grab from your racket, but the attachment of the Velcro to the ball. Not only is this a smart and efficient way to continue playing your game quicker but saves you the worry and backache of having to constantly bend down and pick up other balls.
An Innovative Tennis Product Created by our Texas Product Design Agency, the ROVER Packhopper!
