Like it says on the tin - a device for picking up playballs after they've been scattered all over the garden.
Having a bad back, being 6 feet tall and having, most importantly, an exceptionally short attention span for mundane tasks, this is an especially loathsome job.
I thought about a large,
petrol powered, sit on thing, but that seemed out of keeping with the home and garden usage.
What about a push-around ball collector, in the style of an old fashioned cylinder lawnmower, with soft paddles instead of blades, which puts all the balls in a hopper for you. You then empty the hopper back into the ball pool.
What about a little version for the kids? (A bit like the link)
(?) A bit like this.....

||Just have some children. They can be used for such mundane tasks and can often be paid in cookies.
||There's a push device much like you describe, for picking up sweetgum balls. I'm not googling it for you, but look in lawncare. (This would be nice to have.)
