Tennis Identity

Watch – and be amazed – this is how tennis balls are made

We take ’em for granted, don’t we? Golden Retrievers certainly do. But have you ever wondered how tennis balls are actually made? Wonder no more.

We love this ‘silent’ film. It’s quite mesmerizing (tennis commentators take note, you don’t always need to be saying something to be good). There’s a lot that goes into that U.S. Open Series ball they’re selling for $4.99 a can. We could start a little discussion about labor but…let’s just watch.
