On a warm spring day, really the first decent day since fall, you grab your tennis bag and head to the courts. On the way there you are excited to play for the first time in months. On arrival, you open the bag and pull out some balls you only used once. When you hit the balls, you get a dull thud and kind of a tender feeling in your shoulder or elbow as the balls just won’t fly unless you really smack them.
Of course, you should have picked up a new can and now you wish you did. But what kind of balls should you buy? Could you have avoided this situation any other way? The major ball manufactures are all competing for your business as they produce approximately 300 million annually.
