If you play tennis on a regular basis, you'll want to play with match balls to ensure a better feel and durability. Match balls are mostly made from natural felt and natural rubber. This is the case for our TB920 ball, which is used by professionals at the Moselle Open. If I can share one tip, it's that playing with a "match ball" will be more enjoyable!
