    You're in uni. Get the design students to make something.

    Wide broom x 3, large cardboard box x 3, people x 3. Or as many of these as you like. Place boxes around field perimeter, sweep balls into boxes. job done.

    I'll take my PhD in applied common sense now, please.

    Went to Poundland yesterday to find a solution for you.

    Silver brooms, £1 each. Buy 10 of these.

    You have 10 men training, right? Give them each a broom. Line out side by side so you cover the width of the field. Sweep forward until you reach the far wall.

    Job done.

    If you get the 'Henry' Hoover which is blue it is designed for sucking up liquids, hence It has no bag. It's lirterally just the casing of the Hoover.

    I`ve seen these sold at most garden centre`s = Broom look , but a hefty squeegy end, ( blade type ) Not the sponge . that way you wont suck up any dirt.

    Handheld vacuums would do it... The ones with rechargeable batteries you just chuck onto the stand when your finished. Just carry pods on you to fill on the way around. Cost £100 for 2 or 3 second hand i would have thought...done in no time :)

    Would be nice to see what solution you do come up with though... :)
