Why is it stupid? Seems a good idea to me, they don't have to bend and reach so much.

I don't understand why it's stupid either. We've used those things in Sweden for decades.

this year I saw a tournament of Sweden where the ball boys had this kind of nets.
Seems good for their backs :)

In my opinion the stupidest is that someone criticizes these useful nets

In my opinion the stupidest is that someone criticizes these useful nets I agree with you. Unbelievable that anyone can call it stupid? If a device can help young people be free of injury then it should be used everywhere. All I can say put yourself in the shoes of the young person and imagine how stressful constant bending and picking up balls can be. They must get totally knackered by the time the day is over.

that is pretty fuckin stupid. Next thing you know they will be giving them little carts to ride around on so their fat asses don't have to walk. This is fucking ridiculous.

wow, people have discovered they are using these nets :eek: wow
shows that you know nothing about tennis because it is not new
it's stupid to say that this method is stupid, it's good and most balls can be picked up faster and more secure

i'm just saying that it looks as stupid has hell. i don't care how effective it is, how much effort does it take to bend down and pick up a ball? :o

Before I answer this thread, I actually spend time watching the match and I find it very efficient. Especially when the balls are bouncing. There's nothing wrong with picking the balls with bare hands but why not use something more efficient.

Players have racket bigger than those nets and I haven't seen them tripping and falling because of their racket. I actually saw kids tripped and fell over when tried to pick up a low bouncing ball.
