Tennis Balls - who knew there was so many to choose between….if you’re new to tennis! So this is where we come in to help you out with working out…..what do tennis players look for when choosing balls?

We’ve put together a key summarised and more detailed list for you to help with your decision. We’ve also detailed aspects that you may not have considered when buying tennis balls that’s right for you and how you can use this guide to find the right product on our site.

Are all tennis balls the same?

At first glance there can appear to be not much difference between tennis balls, but tennis balls can vary hugely from, differences in felt, speed and size for juniors, all to create different characteristics for different levels of play.

What are tennis balls made of?

Tennis balls are made with a rubber core and covered in felt. Most balls are filled with compressed air. Having the right type of tennis ball for the surface and level you’re playing can make a significant difference to what you get out of the playing experience, whether for fun, training or competition.

Key Factors to consider are the following:
  • What type of Tennis Ball you need
  • Your Playing Level / Who or for what occasion you’re playing for 
  • What surface you’re playing on
  • Playing Conditions

Tennis Ball 

1. Type of Tennis Ball you need

So what are the differences between the different types of Tennis Balls?
You can check what “type” of tennis ball we are selling on every product page via the specifications section.

Lets explain…firstly check out our simply broken down chart.

Type of Ball: Suited For:
Regular Pressure Tennis Balls Slower Courts (Clay, Grass)
Extra Duty Tennis Balls Hard Courts (if extra durability is needed)
Pressureless Training
Foam Balls Ages 3-5
Junior Stage 1 Red Balls Ages 6-8
Junior Stage 2 Orange Balls Ages 9-11
Junior Stage 3 Green Dot Balls Ages 12-14

Tennis Balls Pressurised vs Pressureless Tennis Balls
Practically a pressurised tennis ball has added internal air pressure into the the balls, enabling them to bounce easily. There are by far the most commonly used balls and will be seen in all major tennis competitions.

Pressureless balls do not have compressed air in them and are often made of a solid rubber core or other materials. This means that they wont go flat and are perfect for training. They have a very consistent bounce and can be great when used on hard surfaces.

How long does a tennis ball last?

Once a pressurized tennis ball is opened and exposed to air, the internal pressure begins to decrease. As a result, the ball gradually loses its bounce and becomes less responsive over time. Pressurized tennis balls used for professional matches typically lose their optimal playing characteristics after around 1 to 2 hours of play. For practice sessions, pressurized tennis balls may last longer, usually around 4 to 6 hours of play before they start to noticeably lose their bounce and become "dead."

Regular Tennis Balls vs Heavy Duty Tennis Balls
As defined by the name, the major difference is how long the balls will last! How is this done? They’re made with wool rather than nylon on the outside, they’ll feel softer to the touch and will be generally slower on court. For harder courts, heavy duty balls can be particularly popular, whilst for softer surfaces like grass or clay, regular balls are more widely played with.

Championship Tennis Balls vs Professional Tennis Balls vs Entry Level

Playing Level How the Tennis Ball is Made
Championship Natural Wool, and woven felt, feels better for durability & consistency
Professional Less Natural Wool and more synthetic fibers
Standard Entry  Mostly synthetic fibres

Championship level tennis balls we generally recommend for training, and club level playing. The quality is great!

The difference between these balls is subtle, however when playing they can make a big difference at competition level. A professional level ball will typically provide a better “feel” so are typically used more in tournaments. 

Learner & Kids Tennis Balls

You’ll notice we list Stage 1,2 and 3 Tennis Balls in our menus, in addition to Foam Tennis Balls. These are all intended for Children at different stages of their ability.

Stage 1 = Green Felt =  Intended for 9-10 years, and are about 25% slower than a normal ball. They’re also the same size as a normal tennis ball.

Stage 2 = Orange Felt = Intended for 8-9 years, these are 50% slower and are normal size

Stage 3 = Red Felt = Intended for Kids 5-8 years, they’re 75% slower than a normal ball and are larger too.

Extra Duty Tennis Balls
Designed specifically for hard surfaces like concrete, or asphalt. They’re made to be more durable due to their thick outer felt and should have a longer lifetime than standard tennis balls. These balls are popular in use because they balance out the fast speed seen on hard courts due to their extra “felt fluff”. You’ll see most Extra Duty balls referenced in their titles with “XD”.


2. Your Playing Level / Who or for what occasion you’re playing

Much of this has been addressed in the above section on Tennis Balls types. However there’s a small amount below to add to that.

This is subjective but we generally recommend slower tennis balls for lower level or skilled players and faster tennis balls for higher level players.

We have a “Player Level” chart below each Tennis Ball (on our product pages) so you can work out what’s right for you.

3. What surface you’re playing on

Slower Courts or Clay/Grass Courts = these treat tennis balls well, and won’t wear out so fast

Faster Courts or Hard Courts = are tough on tennis balls, we recommend extra duty balls so they last longer

4. Playing Conditions

Typically this isn’t an issue but in more unusual conditions this is a factor. These include:

- Weather Humidity - Typically Tennis Balls absorb moisture so the ball becomes heavier, so lighter and harder balls generally suit humid conditions better.

- Altitude - Typically balls at sea level go much faster, so pressurised balls at high altitude don’t make much sense. Therefore if you’re playing at altitude we recommend that you use pressureless balls.

Tennis Ball Fun Facts

Q. How big is a tennis ball?

A. A standard tennis ball has a diameter of about 6.7 to 6.9 centimeters (2.6 to 2.7 inches). This size is regulated by the International Tennis Federation

Q. Why are tennis balls fuzzy?

A. The fuzz, or felt, on a tennis ball creates turbulence in the air around the ball as it moves through the air. This helps reduce air resistance, allowing the ball to travel faster and with more control. The fuzz also helps players generate spin on the ball, giving them more control over the direction and trajectory of their shots.

Q. What colour is a tennis ball?

A. A tennis ball is typically yellowish-green

Q. Why are tennis balls yellow?

A. While tennis balls were traditionally white, the shift to yellow began in the 1970s when TV broadcasts started using color. Yellow was chosen because it showed up better on television.

Our Policy

We hope you are happy with your TennisHQ order, though we completely understand that sometimes, rackets don’t quite feel right, or shoes can be a little snug! We’ve made our returns process as simple as possible, to ensure you can return without any hassle. 

Eligibility For Returning Goods

Before returning, please ensure that you are eligible to do so. The following are the requirements that need to be met in order to return your item. 

  • Items must be returned within 30 days from the date of purchase. 
  • Items must show no signs of use and returned in their original packaging, including the plastic wrap on the handle of rackets and boxes and tags attached to shoes or clothing. 
  • Items must not be customised. Rackets with a 'Stringers Professional Decision' restring applied by TennisHQ at the time of purchase can be returned, but any refund will not include the cost of the restring. If you qualified for a free restring, a £7 service charge will be deducted from your refund to cover the cost of stringing. 
  • If your racket was restrung with a string and tension of your choice, as opposed to 'Stringer's Professional Decision', then we are unable to accept a return on this.

Goods that are returned that are not eligible according to the criteria above will be refused and returned to you. TennisHQ reserves the right to charge you for any reasonable losses incurred by this. 

Our Return Process

Step 1 - Contact Us

Either pop an email to support@tennishq.co.uk or give us a call on 02381449449 to request the return. Please include your order number and your reason for returning to ensure we can proceed as quickly as possible for you. Once you have made contact with us, you will be provided with a Collect+ return label, which is priced at £5.95. The label is pre-paid, so the £5.95 cost would be deducted from your refund, or invoiced prior to dispatching an exchanged item. 


Step 2 - Package Your Return

Please ensure your item is wrapped securely, and avoid applying sellotape to the item’s packaging or box. If damage is caused to a product by application of tape or insufficient packaging, you will be charged for this, or possibly have your return refused in severe cases. 


Step 3 - Attach Your Label

Once your return has been authorised, you’ve received your label and packaged the item, you just need to attach the label to your parcel. Please ensure your label is not attached to the product itself, or the product’s box/packaging. 


Step 4 - Drop The Parcel To Your Local Collect+ Point 

Once packaged and labelled, all you need to do is take the parcel to your closest Collect+ point. Your local store can be found here: 


We suggest retaining the receipt, so you are able to track your parcel. This may also be needed if there are any issues with the parcel en route to us. 

We strive to process all returns within 14 days of arriving with us. 

Wrong Item Received / Damaged Goods

Whilst it is unlikely, mistakes can happen. If you believe you have received the incorrect item or your item is damaged/faulty upon receipt, please contact us at support@tennishq.co.uk.

Please ensure you do not use the item, or remove the packaging (plastic wrap on rackets, or tags on clothing/shoes). If the item is used or the packaging is removed, we will not be able to exchange this for you. 

To speed up the process, please include images of the issue, along with your order number.

Once we have the images and order number, we will provide you with a pre-paid label to have the item returned to us. Once returned, we can replace the goods. 

We again kindly request that no sellotape be applied directly to the item’s packaging.
