Cans of tennis balls are almost always labeled "Regular Duty" (for indoor and clay), "Heavy Duty" or "Extra Duty" (for outdoor hardcourts) or "Grass." Make sure you get the appropriate type for where you play.
The ultimate long-lasting tennis balls have solid, rubber cores. Often called "pressureless", these balls are a good choice for people who play infrequently, as they do not lose their liveliness over time since there is no air inside them to escape. They do have to be replaced occasionally, however, since the felt will wear out. Penn tennis balls or Tretorn tennis balls are usually a good long lasting choice.
You should use a Regular Duty tennis ball on clay or indoor courts. Extra Duty balls last longer on rough, hard asphalt and cement courts. Or, you can mix things up. If you like a fast game, try using a Regular Duty tennis ball on a hard court. To practice your form and positioning, slow down with an Extra Duty ball on a clay court.
If the server needs tennis balls, the player closest to a ball should get it and send it to the server. Send a ball to the server so that he/she can catch it easily with one hand. Advanced players seem to be able to get the ball to bounce once, softly, to the server, but most less advanced players should make the ball bounce twice to ensure that it arrives at a low speed.
If you play 3, 500 feet or more above sea level, get " High Altitude" tennis balls. They are not as highly pressurized as regular tennis balls, which, in the lighter air of higher elevations, can be too active.
If you are buying a whole mess of discount tennis balls from a tennis club or a friend - just be careful. Heavyweight, dead, wet or any type of used tennis balls are heavier and therefore produce more force on the racquet. Fresh, regular duty balls are recommended.
