Types of tennis balls

Pressurized ball This is a tournament ball and is used by advanced and professionals players, these are one the most common used. The internal air pressure gives a greater bounce, speed and spin, this fades quite quickly over time. Study found, the life span of pressurized balls lasts for 2 weeks.

Pressureless ball General used for beginners, practice and recreational play. Bounce from the rubber shell, not the air inside means they wont lose there bounce like standards ball, in fact they actually gain bounce as the outer felt begins to fade, Only con is, some players find this ball to be heavier to play with.
