Red tennis is named after the red foam or felt balls that are used at this stage. Red tennis balls bounce lower and move more slowly through the air, giving beginning players a chance to set up and take a good swing at the ball. Courts at this level are 36 feet long and 18 feet wide, with a net that is 2-foot-9.
In this way, what is the color of tennis balls and why?
Bananas have been around far longer than tennis balls. The tennis gods picked yellow for the color of tennis balls because they thought yellow was bright enough for people to see it with ease.
Then, what is a Stage 1 tennis ball?
Stage balls are softer tennis balls that are especially made for beginners. Stage 1 balls are green and serve as preparation for games of tennis on the entire court. This ball is used in the final stage before children play with normal tennis balls.
How long do red tennis balls last?
Tennis balls will go bad after about 2 weeks or 3-4 playing sessions. Unopened tennis balls are kept in a pressurized tube to help them retain bounciness and firmness, but even those will expire after two years (due to very tiny leaks).
The fastest tennis serve ever recorded is an astonishing 263.4 km/h (163.7 mph) in 2012 by Sam Groth.

Let – a serve is called a let when the ball hits the net cord but still lands in the service court. Such a serve is not considered a fault and the server may repeat the service attempt. A ball that hits the net cord but lands outside the service box is still a fault.
Playing at a recreational level, a can of pressurised tennis balls will last anywhere between 1-4 weeks of light to moderate play. If used for competitive tennis, a pressurised set of tennis balls might last as little as 1-3 hours. Pressureless tennis balls can last 1 year and maybe even longer.
