THE OFFICIAL DUNLOP AUSTRALIAN OPEN BALL

BEHIND THE BALL: HOW THE OFFICIAL DUNLOP AUSTRALIAN OPEN BALL IS BORN

There will be a new ball on court for the 2019 Australian Open, as Dunlop becomes the official ball partner of the season-beginning Grand Slam.

Widely regarded as the best ball on tour by the players, Dunlop was chosen by Tennis Australia for its meticulous attention to detail and dedication to create a high-performance ball fitting for this prestigious event. Ensuring it meets the necessary specifications and performance levels, the ball has been thoroughly tested by Tennis Australia and put through its paces by both former and current professional players.

The Dunlop Australian Open ball is manufactured in the company’s own factory in the Philippines and is put together using the finest materials available. The factory produces millions of tennis balls in a calendar year and over 53,000 balls will be used at the Australian Open in 2019.

The rubber cores at the heart of the ball are made from the finest natural rubber locally sourced from the Philippines while the manufacturing of the cloth takes place in the UK and then shipped over for full assembly.

STORY OF BADMINTON

In the 5th century BC, the people in China played a game called “ti jian zi”. A direct translation from this word ‘ti jian zi’ is kicking the shuttle. As the name suggest, the objective of the game is to keep the shuttle from hitting the ground without using hand. Whether this sport has anything to do with the History of Badminton is up for debate. It was however the first game that uses a Shuttle.

 

 

About five centuries later, a game named Battledore and Shuttlecock was played in china, Japan, India and Greece. This is a game where you use the Battledore (a paddle) to hit the Shuttlecock back and forth. By the 16th century, it has become a popular game among children in England. In Europe this game was known as jeu de volant to them.

In the 1860s, a game named “Poona” was played in India. This game is much like the Battledore and Shuttlecock but with an added net. British army officers stationed in India in the 19th century were so found of this game and that it became a much loved past-time.

 

 

The game soon found its way to England where in 1873, “POONA” was played at the Duke of Beaufort’s lawn party in his country place, and became popular among the British society’s elite. The new party sport became known as “the Badminton game”. In 1877, the Bath Badminton Club was formed and developed the first official set of rules.    “The Badminton Game” soon evolved into a popular party sport, and today, is an Olympic medal event.
