Capabilities

Weaving

Tournament Grade tennis felt is produced on traditional high-speed weaving looms using both projectile and rapier looms.

High performance woven, woolen felts are the result of custom fiber blends and specialty finishing including napping, fulling, and dyeing.

Innovative product development has incorporated various specialty fibers into these woven felts in order to improve performance.

Needling

The needling process is versatile and offers a wide range of weight and density for felt used on championship grade balls.

The precision needling process uses specialty felting needles to accomplish the mechanical interlocking of the fibers, resulting in a compacted, felted material.

The versatility of the needling process creates the possibility for innovative felt design.

Acrylic Non-Woven

Offered as a lower cost, non-woven alternative, this product is made with solution dyed fibers in a blend of acrylic and polyester.
– Scrim-less design that requires no finishing.

This product is normally used for low cost, pressure-less tennis balls.
– No pressurized packaging is required.

History

TTI Sports International has an impressive history as the world’s leading supplier of woven and needled tennis felt– we began making tennis felt in the 1960’s; in the 70’s we made the transition from white to fluorescent yellow felt; in the 80’s we introduced a high-quality, non-woven, needled punched tennis felt.

In the 90’s, as more tennis ball manufacturers moved to Asia, TTI Sports set up factories in Thailand and China. Our Asia initiative provided ball manufacturers an efficient supply chain.

Giving tennis ball manufacturers a range of felt options has helped define TTI Sports global dominance in the tennis felt market. Our textile technology expertise allows us to create advanced specialty felts.

TTI Sports works with individual customers to design felts that meet specific performance criteria. Customers who require engineered felt for specific court surfaces can count on TTI Sports to meet their needs. The selection of the ideal raw material, proper blends, and unique felt finishing ensure optimum felt performance.

The result of our commitment to quality and innovation? Year in and year out, TTI Sports continues to be the number one choice of Penn, Wilson and other premiere tennis ball makers.
