Title (EN) BALL GAME PRACTICE DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF POUR LA PRATIQUE D"UN JEU DE BALLES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A ball game practice device (10) is provided comprising a support structure (11) preferably reticulate, having a plurality of apertures (18) therein through which a ball may pass, each aperture (18) having attached at its periphery a ball retaining means in the form of a flexible sheet (12), also preferably reticulate, having a dimension measured vertically in use greater, preferably by between 50% and 500%, than the corresponding dimension of the aperture whereby a ball retaining pocket (16) is formed. The mesh size of the ball retaining net (12) is less than that of the support net (11), the nets (11, 12) being attached by clips (13). Preferably a single net (12) forms all of the pockets (16) and the clips (13) preferably attach vertically running strands (15, 20) of the two nets together. The strands of the two nets (14, 20; 15, 21) may be coloured differently to distinguish between them. A ball projected towards the device will pass through the support net (11) into a pocket (16) and be retained therein so that the region of entry of the ball is readily determined thereby to assist the practice of golfers, footballers, tennis players and the like.
(FR)Un dispositif pour pratiquer un jeu de balles (10) comprend une structure de support (11) de preference reticulee ayant une pluralite d"ouvertures (18) au travers desquelles une balle peut passer, chaque ouverture (18) ayant des moyens de retenue de la balle attaches a la peripherie de l"ouverture sous la forme d"une feuille flexible (12), de preference egale ment reticulee, ayant une dimension mesuree verticalement lorsqu"il est en utilisation, superieure de preference de 50% a 500% a la dimension correspondante de l"ouverture, formant ainsi une poche de retenue de la balle (16). La dimension de la maille du filet de la retenue de la balle (12) est inferieure a celle du filet de support (11), les filets (11, 12) etant attaches par des attaches (13) de preference un seul filet (12) forme toutes les poches (16) et les attaches (13) de preference attachent ensemble les torons verticaux (15, 20) des deux filets. Les torons des deux filets (14, 20; 15, 21) peuvent avoir des couleurs differentes pour les distinguer. Une balle lancee vers le dispositif passera au travers du filet de support (11) dans une poche (16) et y sera retenue de sorte que la zone d"entree de la balle est facilement determinee, permettant ainsi d"ameliorer l"entrainement des joueurs de golf, de football, de tennis et autres.
