Orange is the new Green

From 2011 players and tournament organisers should note a change to the rules concerning the type of ball to be used at all matches on the ITF Beach Tennis Tour.

Previous years have seen the Stage 1 “Green” balls used but, following requests from players, fans and the Beach Tennis Community in general, it has been decided that the Stage 2 “Orange” balls are now to be used.

The Stage 2 “Orange” balls are softer, therefore slower, than the Stage 1 “Green” balls and this should put more emphasis on finesse and technique on court and less on a power based playing style. This in turn should lead to more entertaining on court rallies for both players and fans alike.

Only a few of the balls are shown in the photos. For a full list of approved balls, click here
