RE: New Balls Please: Everything you never wanted to know about Tennis Balls and were never likely to ask...

in Sports Talk Social2 months ago

Real Tennis had used leather balls stuffed with hair and putty

Can you imagine getting sconed off of one of them when you were a youngster!!


Well, I',m thinking you may never have played cricket with a proper cricket ball! Even at primary school we had to play cricket with 'proper' cricket balls and we were all shit scared of catching the damn ball! We'd all be stood on the boundary praying the ball wouldn't come our way with the teacher screaming at us and calling us nancy boys!
