The fuzz creates drag which helps stabilize the flight path of the ball. This principle is also used with dimples in Golf balls.

The fuzz on the tennis ball creates more drag allowing players to have more control over the ball, last longer & resist staining. The fuzzy ball teaches us how to handle pressures & all types of treatment at work.

Because the friction of the fuzziness connects to the waffle on the tennis racket, therefore propelling the ball to new heights as it soars over the net.

The fuzz is what allows the tennis racket strings to "grip" the ball. That's how players can spin the ball, gaining optimum control over speed, flight path, and how the ball reacts on the bounce.

When you are not sports coordinated (like me) having a fuzzy soft tennis ball creates a safe feeling when used.

There are degrees of fuzziness on tennis balls to control: -how fast you want the ball to travel. -how much control you have (i.e. spin) The fuzz on tennis balls also comes into play when: -considering the court material you will be playing on (grass, clay, asphalt, etc..) -the tension of the strings on the racquets (grab-ability)

New tennis balls -- with lots of fuzz -- move faster than ones where the fuzz wore off. So figure that in your answer

debby on

new tennis balls move faster because they're new and more bouncy. Old ones without fuzz are old and have lost some of they're bounce.
