We've already answered a number of questions about
different things that can affect how tennis balls bounce. You can find
them by going to the Making Stuff Move: Bouncing, Bumping, and Crashing
section of this list.
For actual research, I'd say that the
best place to look is with a company that designs and makes tennis
balls. That's because in order to make the best possible tennis balls,
they have to do a lot of research about exactly what it is that makes
the balls bounce the way they do. So they will probably have any info
that you could want. A company that has helped us out with questions
before is the Wilson Sporting Goods Company
. You can use the "Contact Us" button on their website to send them an email.
