Accordingly, how far can an average person throw a tennis ball?
How far can a tennis ball be thrown? Throwing the ball directly horizontally (an angle of release of 0 degrees), I’m guessing I’d reach about 15 yards, maybe 20 if I really stepped into it. I’ve personally hit 50 yards (~46 meters) if thrown at any angle and measured horizontally.
Simply so, what is the longest tennis ball throw?
Roald Bradstock: The greatest world record ever – can it be…

- In 2010, I surpassed Percy’s record throwing 132.66m or 145 yards ½” …
- I threw 53m with a 1976 Guinness World Records Pocket book.
How do you properly throw?
The farthest throw of a Guinness World Records book is 21.876 m (71 ft 9.25 in), and was achieved by Christopher Watson (Canada) at Notre Dame Collegiate in High River, Alberta, Canada, on 14 April 2018.
Human athletes can achieve throwing speeds close to 145 km/h (90 mph), far in excess of the maximal speed attainable by chimpanzees, at about 30 km/h (20 mph). This ability reflects the ability of the human shoulder muscles and tendons to store elasticity until it is needed to propel an object.
Check out the velocity chart in this article that uses physics data from one of the world’s baseball physics experts, Dr. Alan Nathan. His calculator of fly ball distance is a great estimator, and it shows that somewhere between 77-82 is needed to throw approximately 300 feet.
