What is a tennis ball made of?

  • The early tennis ball was "a wad of hair, wool, or cork wrapped in string and cloth or leather." It would have been invented by the people who most likely invented tennis: French monks in the 11th or 12th century. The modern version is a hollow ball, with two different kinds of material covering it: rubber and a fabric. Two similar strips of rubber form the spherical ball and it is then covered by canvas.
  • Tennis balls 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.
  • The ball consists of two rubber hemispheres joined together under pressure ( or using a chemical decomposition process to form internal pressure)so that the 'core' formed has a specified resilience and gives the finished ball its required properties. The fabric (felt) is first woven using cotton as a backing (warp)and a wool / nylon for the covering (weft). After felting the fabric is dyed and finished before transportation to a ball making plant. Two 'dogbones' of fabric are cut after application of a latex backing and stuck to the latex covered core - the 'ball' is then cured and the result is a proper tennis ball. Finally logos are applied and the ball packed under pressure to preserve its internal pressure.
  • Tennis balls used in professional tennis must adhere to ITF and/or USTA rules and regulations (refer to the ITF link, below). One of the rules requires that the ball be either yellow or white, with yellow being the preferred color for better viewing on televisions. For amateur purposes in non-ITF/USTA events, any color is allowed, which is why some retailers sell tennis balls in odd colors, such as pink, green, black, and even multi-tones.

What is the year the ping putter 1A 85068 was made?

1959 is the answer. I quote from the Ping.com WEB-Site (Karsten Solheim invents the PING putter in his Redwood City, California garage. he names his putter "PING" because of the sound it makes upon contact with a golf ball. Two years later, he moves his family to Phoenix and continues his quest to improve golf club design.) Putters from PING don't "Ping" anymore. There are still 1A putters for sale. The new ones are not made of copper as was the original.

How many ping-pong balls does it take to equal the mass of Earth?

According to a contribution elsewhere on WikiAnswers, the international official mass of a

ball (they're very sensitive about that) is 2.7 grams = 2.7 x 10-3 kg.

The mass of the earth is listed in another source as 5.97 X 1024 kg.

(5.97 x 1024) / (2.7 x 10-3) = 2.211 x 1027 balls. (rounded)

You were probably looking forward to the thrill of seeing the big number, so here it is:

2.211 x 1027 = 2,211,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 balls. (rounded)

What is the use white lines in table tennis?

If you are playing doubles(with another person on your side), then you and your partner decide who hits the balls that go in the left box and who gets the ones on the right.

Another use of the white lines is that when you practice hitting forehands, you hit the ball to the other person's right box. That goes on and it should work out fine. Same goes to backhands.

How popular is Ping Pong in the world?

Table tennis, also known as Ping Pong (a trademarked name), is one of the most popular sports in the world in terms of player numbers, as well as being one of the newest of the major sports. Primarily a recreational sport in the United States, table tennis is a major competitive sport in Asia and parts of Europe. In 1971 the sport achieved a great measure of publicity when, while touring Japan, a U.S. table tennis team was invited to play in China, thereby initiating the first officially sanctioned Sino-American cultural exchange in almost twenty years. Table tennis took its place on the Olympic program in 1988. Ping-pong is the most popular in China and some countries in Europe. Table Tennis is the second most popular participation short in the world next to Soccer. Definitively determining what sport is most popular is next to impossible. In many countries, people like several sports. For example, in the US, if you ask what the most popular sport is to a given person, they may say football or basketball. How do partition their preference? Do you count each as equal, or say count 70% of a vote for football, 30% for soccer? If you argue that you take only their most favorite, then some interesting consequences arise. For example: The population of China is over 1.3 billion people, or 1300 million. As noted in other answers, ping-pong is the most popular sport in this nation. If you make the assumption that in ALL of Europe, soccer is the most popular, then you could attribute about 700 million people to that sport. If you make the same assumption for South America, the other large soccer hub, then another 350 million soccer fans can be counted. Added together, this is about 1.1 billion or 1100 million fans….less than the population of China. This disparity only gets smaller when you survey other Asian countries, which rank among the most populous by far, since they either also chose ping pong, or other sports entirely (baseball, cricket). When viewed analytically, it is very hard to justify the often used statement that soccer is the most popular sport in the world. It is in fact ping-pong! This statement is made is generally unchallenged since the echoes of European imperialism still haunt us all, and many still take a very Euro-centric view of the world. To them, if it is not the rage in England, France, or Germany, it is not happening. However, the world is more than Europe, and Asia does matter, which is becoming increasingly more pronounced as we move into the twenty-first century.
