it is my understanding that a tennis ball has more mass compared to a ping pong ball. if something has a larger mass it can carry a larger amount of energy and the more energy it has the further it goes.

Yes, because there is less gravity on the moon. Also, because there is no air friction on the Moon.

With no air on the Moon, a frisbee cannot "fly".
