Today’s Tennis Balls
CoolStuffBeingMade.com: How Tennis Balls Are Made
Have you ever wondered how a Wilson tennis ball is made? Above is a video that explains how a Wilson tennis ball is made. Tennis balls start out as small pieces of rubber which are called slugs. Slugs are then molded into the shape of half a ball. The center of tennis balls consist of two molded rubber slugs. Glue is then applied to two slugs to form a round piece of rubber. Two pieces of felt are then used to cover the rubber ball. Logos are then printed on the balls. After that, they are packed up to be sold.
