Tennis Balls

Our tournament quality, pressurized tennis balls are handmade in England by a small, family run company that has been making balls for over 80 years and crossing three generations.

The white melton encased rubber ball was standard for almost a century until the ITF recommended the switch to optic yellow in 1972 – tracking a white ball on color television proved rather difficult. Today, 24 years after even Wimbledon made the switch, the Rodakis Open is still played with white balls, really the only reason it isn’t televised.
