A tennis ball is a tennis ball, right? Wrong. There’s a wide range of makes for all sorts of different solutions. The main manufacturers are Penn, Wilson and Dunlop. They all make regular balls for indoor and clay courts and extra duty for hard court play. There are four speeds of tennis ball: slow, medium (most usual), fast, and high altitude (for about 4,000 ft.). There are also three types of felt – regular, extra duty, and grass court – and two ways of producing bounce, namely pressurized and pressureless. Pressurized balls are the most common. They come at 14 psi, although they lose their bounce after a few weeks of opening the can, at which point they become perfect for games of fetch with Fido. Pressureless tennis balls start out less bouncy and get livelier as the felt wears off, and work well with ball machines.
