Why would it matter how much ooomph the ball has for our useage? We don't
depend on having the ball bounce, in fact, for safety, I'd rather not have
the ball riccocheting around the target area. We are heaving the balls not
batting at them with clubs, so the lack of ooomph would not effect the
flight. But "flat" balls would be cheaper and flat racquet balls would have
a smaller area for the same wieght as flat tennis balls.

he only uses some of them for 4 or 5 games.
