    Greeetings ladies and gents. Is it possible to buy the actual balls used on the ATP Tour? If so, which brand(s) is it?


    Thanks,

    Penn ATP balls are available on this site, in both extra and regular duty versions.

    They use different brands at different tournaments, depending of who the sponsor is. Most often used are Wilson and Penn.

    Technically, Penn is the official ball of the ATP.

    I thought Head was the official ball of the ATP...

    Penn was acquired by Head in 1999.
    They now sell Penn-branded balls in North America, and Head balls in Europe and Asia.

    Actually, here's the link:
