Rubber helps Tennis Balls bounce better. If you get the kind of tennis balls with a very solid and not hollow rubber, it won't bounce. If it's hollow it will bounce way better. How could tennis balls not bounce without rubber? Tennis balls are made of rubber because it helps it bounce. This may sound silly, but how could a tennis ball bounce without being made of rubber? Tennis balls need rubber so that when they come into contact with the ground they do not burst or crack. It will dent slightly and go back to its original form. This is an advantage to a tennis ball being made out of rubber. so it can bounce.

There are about 300 million tennis balls manufactured in the world each year. Tennis balls are not usually recycled and the rubber they are made from doesn't break down easily.

Modern tennis balls are made of a hollow rubber core, covered in a wool or nylon shell which is known as the nap. Pressurised air inside the rubber core makes the ball bounce.

No, the rubber compound is not good for them. Tennis balls are toxic for any animals.

Tennis balls are balls about 4 inches tall and 4 inches wide that are used in the game of tennis. They are usually made from rubber with a yellow/green peach fuzz on them. They bounce fairly high and do not use a pump for air unlike basketballs and other balls. Thanks!

In the early days of tennis, balls were often made of leather stuffed with hair or wool. The early tennis balls were made by Scottish craftsmen.

Like all other tennis balls they are made of a layer of rubber surrounding a hollow centre (core). A thin layer of adhesive covers the rubber and then a layer of felt-like material made up of wool and artificial fibers called the nap. The lettering on the surface is just black ink.

There is no evidence of a ball been made from polyurethane. There are polyurethane foam balls, but unfortunately no tennis balls. The process is likely to be the same as a normal tennis ball, the only difference being that the rubber in the ball is replaced by polyurethane.
