A great place to store your tennis balls, the Tourna® Pete Sampras Ballport® is designed to hold up to 80 at a time. It's designed with rotating handles that lock in an up position for when you need to collect or transport balls and a down position for dispensing.
Tennis icon Pete Sampras chose wisely when he decided to put his name on this product. The Tourna Pete Sampras Ballport is our top-rated ball hopper due to the quality of its materials, ease of assembly (you just have to screw the handles on), its versatile usage, and its reasonable price. Ball hoppers are typically used by players on the practice court to collect and hold dozens of balls.

The Ballport Tennis Ball Pickup Basket locks closed to hold balls in place during transport and storage. Assembling this tennis ball basket is simple, since its panels lock into place and its legs are easily attached with the provided screws. Ballport Tennis Ball Pickup Basket, 80-Ball Capacity: Made of tough polypropylene
When the legendary Pete Sampras needs to practice his serve, he uses the durable polypropylene constructed Tourna Mini-Ballport hopper. This 36 capacity ball hopper features easy ball pickup and dispensing, and easy transformation between downward and upright positions. 36-ball capacity.
Unlike many other hoppers that are made from metal wire, Pete’s ball hopper is made from polypropylene, a durable, tough material that makes this hopper likely to outlast most others on the market. Just like Pete, this thing is tough as nails. The hopper is assembled by connecting several screws at the side and base.
To collect tennis balls all you need to is grab the hopper by the handles and push down when you are directly over the ball you want to pick up. The hopper will squeeze the ball through the gaps in its frame (usually the hopper is made out of wire) and the ball ends up in the basket section.
The fully assembled hopper weighs about 3-4 pounds and stands 30.5" tall. I didn't specifically count, but I think it does hold just about 36 balls. The legs rotate up easily to form the handles for carrying or picking up balls and rotate down again, locking easily into place to serve as legs.
