The TOP Pickleball is PickleballCentral's house brand pickleball. TOP
stands for, "The Outdoor Pickleball". This ball has all the qualities
you've come to love from other outdoor pickleballs. It's durable,
seamless, hard plastic and has 40 holes - some large, some smaller.
Like other outdoor pickleballs, this ball is "rotationally molded"
meaning that a single chunk of hot plastic is placed inside a hollow
rotating mold under low pressure until it has completely melted into the
wall of the mold. Once it's cooled, the mold is separated to release
the hollow plastic ball. The next step is to drill out the 40 holes to
make a perfect pickleball.
If you cut up the ball, you will find the internal surface is smooth and
completely continuous. The advantage of this manufacturing method is
that you get consistent and even wall thickness. The ball is also
stronger and will last longer than melting two half balls together.
These are not your grandparents’ simple whiffle balls! They designed to
be durable for pickleball.
The TOP pickleball meets current USA Pickleball Association's ball
specifications, including changes that will take place October 1, 2016.
Available in the following colors: yellow, orange, or white.
