when balls get catty

If you like to use your claws on the court, Sequen tennis balls might be just for you. Sequen sells luxury tennis balls in leopard, tiger, jaguar and python prints, among others, giving the standard tennis ball its best make-over since it ditched white for yellow in the modern game.

The chic balls retail for $20 a can or $480 a case (24 cans). And while you may raise an eyebrow at the design (and the price), Sequen owner Jennifer Baker assures these fuzzy creatures aren’t just good to look at- they’re top of the line quality, too.

“We use the best felt out there,” Baker said. “Our manufacturer is certified and our felt people do all the big ball brands.”

Baker started the company in 2006, but used the last three years to develop the brand and get a “solid, professional team” behind Sequen. The company is based in the Palm Springs area, a tennis-obsessed valley that’s home to the yearly pro stop at Indian Wells. Baker plans to make her big reveal at this year’s USPTA buying conference in Florida.
