It looks like tennis is heading to a different type of court!
Two of the world’s leading tennis ball manufacturers are locked in a dispute over claims made by one in an advertisement.
On Monday 30 April, HEAD USA Inc. and Penn Racquet Sports Inc. filed a claim of false advertising against Dunlop International Ltd. and Dunlop Sports Group Americas Inc.
The lawsuit claims that Dunlop mislead the public in regards to advertising their tennis balls as the “World’s No. 1 Ball”. They also claimed to hold 70% of the tennis ball market. Penn argue that both claims made are false.
Neither of the two companies were available to comment on the lawsuit but hopefully this will not be dragged through the courts.
