Clay court tennis balls are designed to bounce lower and slower than balls used on other types of tennis courts. This can make playing on clay courts more challenging, as players must be able to adjust their shots to account for the slower pace of the ball.
Clay court tennis balls typically have a felt surface, which helps to create the slower bounce.
Great way to maintain ball control for a youth beginner. They don’t sail quite as far as regular tennis balls so kids can get more hands on control with their hits. The two color pattern helps with ball spin recognition, but we haven’t quite reached that level of play yet.

“Let’s get a non-player’s opinion,” said no one ever. But nevertheless, here I am. First of all, we have the Penn 1 and the picture clearly shows the Penn 3s, but I’m just going to ignorantly pretend they’re all the same! But as someone who just got into the sport on a whim, they work perfectly fine! They bounce, they’re round, classic look and feel, they don’t disintegrate when I hit them – what more could I want? Not the cutest or most luxurious packaging, but who cares? New plastic/tennis ball smell is kind of strong at first, but don’t sniff them for too long and you’re fine!.
I like Penn extra duty balls due to their ability to last in multiple weather conditions. In Phoenix they last well in the usual dry heat, but also on those occasional humid days and occasional frosty mornings.
Penn extra duty balls also keeping bouncing well into the 3rd set on dusty court conditions, when other brands tend to fade as the fuzz accumulates dust. I highly recommend Penn extra duty balls.
We prefer to use the Penn extra duty balls. This one goes flat faster than the extra duty ones. The ball’s pressure are inconsistent even if they came out of the same can. Some came out firm and other are a bit soft.
They bounce well in the beginning but do not last as long as the extra duty ones. Overall, Penn balls are good tennis balls.

This is no small feat because the ITF has very strict regulations for tennis balls These regulations oversee compression, mass, size, deformation, rebound and durability. Technologies built into the Babolat Gold Tennis Ball include: Rubber Play: Tennis balls are made of a hollow rubber core and help the ball to bounce.
Babolat Gold tennis balls boast of a special rubber technology called rubber play. Extra Duty Felt: Extra-duty felt is more durable than any other felt. Babolat Gold tennis balls felt covering is thicker and they have more fuzz on them.
Extra fuzz is also known to put more spin on the ball. Classic Pressure: The pressure inside an average tennis ball is slightly higher than ambient sea level pressure. Most people play tennis in somewhat mild weather which decreases pressure inside the tennis ball, due to loss of heat energy, slowing down the air molecules inside the ball.
The Babolat Gold ball manufacturers its balls in material and quality that enhances the durability of the pressure of the ball. Babalot Golds are advertised as all court tennis balls. This means they are ideal for all court surfaces.
These balls are great on hard court surfaces. My group of senior doubles players voted them the best for their playability, longevity and feel. Also, a little easier on the arm and for those with tennis elbow.
I can’t believe I have not heard of Babolat balls, they are fabulous! Everyone that I play with loves them too. We have played doubles with the same can for 3 matches, the bounce is still good and they feel good on the stringbed.
I googled tennis balls and that is how I learned about them. Went to Holobird and read the reviews and now I am adding to the positives.

I’m not sure what the rating system is (the yellow stars indicate the rating? The unfilled stars indicate the rating?) but I wasn’t happy with the tennis balls I bought through the website, and I’m trying to give it one star.
My dad, who lives 450 miles from me, requested tennis balls for Father’s Day. When I visited the website, it looked as though you could only buy them in the store, or they were foam tennis balls that could be sent.
These didn’t indicate that they were foam, or anything other than actual tennis balls, so I ordered them. But according to my dad, they were more for beginners, too big. Again, no indication of this online.
So my dad ended up driving to Big 5 to trade them in for the actual ones he uses. That was good, but the whole point was to avoid him having to drive over there.
I injured my shoulder slamming into a support beam and it damaged the tendons and soft tissue to my rotator cuff. My Chiropractor suggested rolling the area against a wall starting with a tennis ball but it was too painful so I tried these softer ones until I could tolerate the harder tennis ball.

I bought these balls thinking they would be bouncy when first opened but they really were not very lively. I thought maybe it was just that one can so I opened another and had the same experience. On the positive side, they stayed the same bounce and lasted for a bit as I guess the extra duty means they were made more durable.
I did notice, though, it seems you cannot buy the regular felt balls in a multi-pack which is an interesting fact.

Slazenger Club All Court Tennis Balls The Slazenger Club All Court Tennis Ball is ideal across all playing surfaces, offering consistent play. > Tennis balls > 3 ball pressurised tube > Suitable for all court surfaces.
Purchased 2 tubes of these mainly off the back of a good price but for me they turned out to be poor value. They were fine when first opened but after a matter of a perhaps 6 weeks on the shelf with less than a few hours actual game time (Covid restrictions were curtailing tennis club activity at the time) they went flat and were only suitable for throwing for dogs.
Hugely disappointed. We are not league players but like to play every week. The balls were really springy on the hot day we introduced them to the court but later in the week and their second outing and they are really fluffy, and so is my racket.
This is not normal for young tennis balls. I would not recommend them.
Clay court tennis balls are typically made of a harder material than their grass court or hard court counterparts. This is because the clay surface of a clay court is much harder than either grass or hard courts, and the ball needs to be able to withstand the repeated bouncing and hitting that occurs during a clay court match.
The harder material also helps the ball to retain its shape and bounce better on the clay surface.
Clay court tennis balls typically have a slightly larger diameter than other types of tennis balls. This is because the clay surface of a clay court is much smoother than either grass or hard courts, and the larger ball helps to reduce the amount of friction that the ball experiences as it moves across the court.
The larger diameter also helps the ball to retain its shape and bounce better on the clay surface.
