I hit against the wall a lot and I've been looking for a faster tennis ball but can't find any. Do you know of any? I'm thinking of a ball somewhere between a black racquetball and a regular duty tennis ball.
Got these 45 yr old bald Tretorns, just what your elbow wants and needsI hit against the wall a lot and I've been looking for a faster tennis ball but can't find any. Do you know of any? I'm thinking of a ball somewhere between a black racquetball and a regular duty tennis ball.
If you hit fast pace enough, the wall is super HIIT.No interest at all? When you hit against a wall, you never have to handle pace because the ball loses so much momentum by the time it hits the wall. Faster ball means learning to handle pace even when you're hitting against a wall. If you ever get an old ball that's worn down but retains it's bounce, it's a lot of fun. I try to keep those balls around but only about 1/100 tennis balls is that special kind. But why couldn't tennis balls be designed to be high bounce, low felt wall balls? It seems like a good idea to me.
Stan or Dennis?? I don't know many down there, but it's loaded with resort tennis, of course.The pro in Hilton Head who coaches ATP and WTA players recommended I use a dead ball against the wall. That I work on stroke control and clean contact. A dead ball would make me hit through more instead of just redirecting the ball.
That's actually a good thing, because it forces you to have to adjust to balls and play shots from everywhere in the court, rather than standing back behind the baseline all day.But if you stand closer you always have to hit the ball on the rise. It's more like half-volley practice.
I was about to say precisely this.The pace may be slower, but the reaction time is shorter as the ball only travels half the distance it would if hitting with someone baseline to baseline. So no, I wouldn't want faster balls.
Balls get bald and hot so quickly hitting against a wall not sure anyone needs more speed.I figured out why some balls are faster. In balls where the glue that holds the two parts of the ball together is thinner , that makes the ball smaller and also the bond is stronger. If you could make more balls like that, you would have longer lasting, higher bouncing balls. It's a conspiracy of big tennis ball to deny us these superior balls. Few understand this.
I'm pretty sure that when I was a kid, we trained occasionally with some special Tretorn balls that actually were faster then the usual ballsIt's just weird that you can buy lots of balls that are slower than regulation (pressureless, high altitude, junior) but you can't buy any tennis balls faster than regulation.
I don't know the name of the ballTretorn Serie? It says it's longer lasting pressurized ball so maybe that would be worth a try.
