    Hello, I am new to tennis and I want to know what is a ball hopper? Is it just a metal basket for ball storages or is there any other special features. Thank you.

    It has bars on the bottom to let balls in but not out.

    some hoppers have handles that fold down so it stands straight up, rather than you having to crouch down to pick each one up from the hopper.
