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.
