Hello everyone,

Have any of you had experience making a homemade ball catch net to be used for serve & robot practice?

I read somewhere that PVC pipe and mosquito netting make an effective net, but I wanted to see if anyone else has further ideas / suggestions for creating a useful net. A diagram or schematic would be especially helpful.

Thank you in advance!

Edit: I should also mention that I would like it to funnel the balls down into a bucket below.

I think this sounds good and would be interested to see what other say. I'm sure you could figure it out though, you would want the net to extend to just below the table to maybe 4 feet over the table. Then just put some slack in the net with a hole, where there is the most slack, then get a home depot bucket to catch the balls.
