Wimbledon Break: How Tennis Balls Are Made

By July 2, 2006Cool Stuff Being Made

Here’s a summer re-run of a video we posted just a short while ago, a video tour of the Wilson plant where tennis balls are made. If you watch Wimbledon even for a short while you see how many tennis balls they go through in a single match, much less in the entire tournament. Not to worry, the good people at Wilson can keep up with the demand, cranking out 90,000 dozen balls a week, over 50 million a year. Heck, we hit that many over the fence just last summer!
