Abstract:This project studied various brands of tennis balls in relation to the specifications set forth by the International Tennis Federation. The diameter, weight and bound height were measured using digital equipment. The “Cooper” brand of tennis ball was most consistent during the performance test and most efficient in cost value. Ironically, the “Cooper” brand is not recognized as being ITF approved.
