For anyone not familiar with transition balls (tennis balls that slow the game down for beginners of all ages), here is a general guide to help choose the low-compression transition ball appropriate for each player and situation. Keep in mind that these balls are not just for children, but can also speed up improvement in adult beginners as well since the balls slow down the “action” giving players more time to prepare their racquet and move to each ball.
These “low-compression” balls are less pressurized and do not bounce as fast or as high as regular yellow tennis balls.
“I was curious to find out what my students’ parents thought about Oncourt Offcourt’s red expression balls when I was told the following amazing story. The family of one of my students went to a Spurs game and well ... the Spurs lost. On the car ride home the parents were saying how upset and disappointed they were because the Spurs had played so badly and lost. Their 5-year-old daughter Lillian spoke up from the back seat of the car, ‘It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it’s just a game!’ Wow! She got it and understood it!”
