    Why ball picker? Because it protects your back and your knees, because it helps you maintain the rythm of your practice, because it saves time and all and all its more professional and efficient. Why My Ping Pong Buddy? Because its the best one! It does all the above and it has great functionality! Get it!

    I have been a table tennis 60 years and always trying my best to reach a level where I could make a name for myself in this game. Unfortunately I was not able to reach the level I wish to achieve. One night I had an idea of a device to pick up dozens of balls off the floor that is a lot better than what they had on the market. I have helped thousands of table tennis players in the US and abroad reach the next level. I can not say that this made my name widely known in table tennis . But mention MyPingPongBuddy to Table Tennis players and they know what you are talking about.

    My Ping Pong Buddy Ball Picker is really my buddy. It´s so simple to use and so effective. Im a wheelchair user so this helps me a lot to save my back and time so I can focus on my practice.
    I recommend it for all kind of players and coaches who want to save time to practice instead of picking balls slowly.

    This is a very useful and efficient kind of picker upper .
    I’m a coach for more than 20 years now and never thought I would see the day that picking up many balls after each segment during training would save me a lot of time.
    Highly recommended. The pros of using this equipment is just overwhelming. The cons? Why bend it? Any other picker upper could not even do what this picker upper could do. Not even close.

    We’ve been using this ping pong ball picker “My Ping Pong Buddy” for many years at our ping pong club in Hawaii “Aloha Table Tennis Association”. By far the best ball picker around. On Thursday nights at our club, we have “Multi-ball” group practice and these ball pickers come in real handy and so easy to use. The best part is you can pick up over 100 balls before unloading…. and to unload the balls you just flip it upside down and give it a good shake into a container. I’d recommend this ball picker to anyone that needs to pick up a bunch of ping pong balls.

    I have a few versions of the “My Ping Pong Buddy” ball pickers since my older kid attended her first US Nationals about 6 years ago in Las Vegas, where I got the first “My Ping Pong Buddy” ball picker from Joe, which is probably the first version. Since then, I am addicted to it. The reason is very simple. My older kid has been in extensive training 6 days a week and I am 6 feet tall. This tool is really helping me to easily pick up about 100 balls at a time as the kid needs a lot of multi-ball training and I need to catch up before the basket runs out of the balls. Of course, my kid “hates” me doing that and sometimes to keep the kid motivated, the coach has to make me put the balls into another basket to make sure the one in use will be empty. A little hope for the kid ? Well, a couple of years later, the younger kid has joined the “club”. To save time, we always arrange the training for both of them at the same start time. Without the “My Ping Pong Buddy” ball picker, it is going to be a mission impossible as I will have to run around like crazy. While looking at other parents bending the back and pick up the balls, I can take it easy to take care of the multi-ball sessions for both of my kids by walking around (good exercise for me too) and reach the balls under the table or at the corner, thanks for the long extension of the picker.

    Over the years, the picker is improving from a PVC extension to an aluminum one which is lighter. Later the head of the picker is adjusted to a better angle touching the ground and make the job easier. Anyway, I will keep upgrading based on the improvement as far as I am on the job of picking up the balls. By the way, I have been using multiple pickers ranging from non-professionals (butterfly catcher) to big brand names. So far this is the best choice and saving my back, wrist and make me enjoy the kids’ training more.

    I have been providing the feedback to Joe about the tool and glad to see he is paying a lot of attention to someone like me using it every day. I really hope Joe will continue to improve the picker and help many more players, parents and coaches or whoever loves to pick up ping pong balls…?

    Lastly, I suggest you have a “My Ping Pong Buddy” ball picker in each car at your house. This will make sure you won’t forget to bring it with you for training and have to use the ball picker from the club if they don’t have this best product.
