Depends what surface your bouncing it on
tennis ball because a tennis ball is softer and that makes it lose it's bounce first
depends on what height you drop it like 5 inches its 2 seconds
it depends on how high you bounce it
Tennis balls bounce because the air pressure inside is higher than the outside pressure. They begin to lose bounce as soon as removed from their pressure can. The alititude where the ball is played will affect the bounce. As they are played, they lose more bounce. Typically, they lose too much bounce to play after about 3 sets of recreational (amateur) tennis, or 8 games of professional tennis.
being very dirty and old
its starts loosing bounce as soon as the can is opened
After about 3 sets of recreational (amateur) tennis, or 8 games of professional tennis.
Yes it does, the water accumulates in the ball, which causes it to get heavier and therefore doesn't bounce as high as a normal tennis ball. The ball also tends to slide on the courts when the ball hits the surface when hit with pace.
because it looses all its air so it wont be able to bounce as high as it would normally do.
when tennis balls get wet they get heavy and the bigger it is the less bounce.
If you open a new can of tennis balls and leave them in the can without using them, it can take a week for the tennis balls to have a significant loss in their bounce. If you are using tennis balls daily, then it can be a matter of a couple of weeks to around three weeks until the tennis balls lose their bounce completely.
