Are there different types of tennis balls for different surfaces?

Tennis balls are geared for different court surfaces. There are tennis balls specifically designed for clay, hard court, and grass court surfaces. Check on the outside of the tennis ball can for the type of court surfaces you should use them on. For example, some tennis balls are specificially made for clay court surfaces. Some tennis balls work on hard court surfaces both indoors and outdoors. Check out your local sports store for many different brands. You also want to make sure that the balls you are playing with are "flat". Tennis balls lose their air pressure after you play with them. You can keep them in a special pressurized tennis ball can, but these are not used very much anymore. Make sure to open a new can of tennis balls when you hit the tennis course for a match. In fact, this a rule in tennis tournaments and leagues. You can squeeze the tennis ball to determine if it is flat. If you can easily squeeze it then it is most likely flat. Or you can bounce the ball to tell. Old tennis balls should be thrown away if they have lost most of their fuzz as well.

What were the original rules in tennis?

-The height of the net has changed many times, however, in 1892 it was decided that the height shall be 3ft 6 inches and 3ft at the center which it is today. -The pressure in tennis balls has been reduced and the size of tennis balls has increased to take away some of the advantages derived from modern rackets, which enables players to generate tremendous power without extra physical effort. - In past tennis, they decided to count by increments of 15, 30, 45 but today's scoring is 15, 30, 40.
