Wimbledon tennis balls are kept at 68 degrees Fahrenheit, Amazing Right?
Wimbledon tennis balls are kept at a temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit. The temperature of a tennis ball influences its bounce. The gas molecules inside the ball expand as the temperature rises, causing the ball to bounce higher. Lower temperatures shrink the molecules, causing the ball to bounce lower. Wimbledon goes through more than 50,000 tennis balls each year to ensure that only the best tennis balls are used.
