Head Championship Tennis Balls Review

Head tennis balls are not very known and widespread in the USA. However, in Europe, especially in the United Kingdom they belong to bestsellers. They are used not just by professionals but are wide-spread at the club and recreational level. They beat even the Dunlop and Wilson tennis balls in bestseller rankings. Recently, I had a chance to play for a couple of weeks with Head Championship Tennis Balls. My notes about that experience can be found here.

Head Championship Tennis Balls: Tube and Balls

Head Championship tennis balls are sold in tubes containing three or four balls. They are made of extra thick wool and are recommended for all courts use mainly for recreational club players and beginners.


Head Championship tennis balls after practice sessions. No visible abrasion, bounce still good.

I used Head Championship balls on hard “taraflex” courts and was pretty surprised by their durability. Probably, thanks to the extra thin surface, they did not leave any pilling on the court. They kept together and that can not be said about every tennis balls.


In the beginning, they bounced pretty well and even after approximately five practice sessions (9 playing hours) still keep the bounce and did not flatten at all.

Pictures on the left and right show Head tennis balls after five practice sessions. As you see, no changes at all, no abrasion is visible. Quality of bounce cannot be visible on photos, but be assured that it was still fine.

Overall, I was very satisfied with Head Championship tennis balls. The pricing is favorable too and I think they deserve a bigger chance in States at club level. They can be used for a good amount of time without any problems. They universal usage on all surfaces is advantageous too. I think they are a good choice for beginners and intermediate players looking for good balls at a reasonable price.
