In 1910 (Penn’s first year of manufacturing), they produced 13,000 tennis balls. Now, more than 100 years later, their state of the art factory produces more than 13,000 tennis balls each hour! The first tennis balls produced were not put in pressurized cans but came fresh off of the line and were trucked to dozens of factory branches which sold “fresh” tennis balls. Pressurized cans were introduced in 1922 to give the tennis balls a longer shelf life. During the past decade, their factories have used more than 150 million square feet of optic yellow felt to produce tennis balls, enough to cover almost 6 square miles of area. Tennis balls are made for different surfaces. Extra-Duty felt for hard courts, Regular-Duty for softer courts (clay, grass) and Extra-Duty High Altitude for courts located in higher elevations (4000+ feet above sea level).
