    On the ball I think it should continue for the moment, because it is easy to acquire because of the large market for kids tennis, be a ball already known, if it is a lot ball lighter the wind would influence too much, heavier the game is very fast, I think this aspect is good for now.

    It would be interesting in the future to see if a new ball could be designed specifically but for the moment there are certain Type 2 Orange balls that react in different ways:
    e.g. HEAD balls are very lively and bounce a lot whereas a ball like Artengo is less reactive and in my opinion more suited to Beach Tennis.
