The world’s number one tennis ball is the Dunlop ball. This small ball has the power to make or break champions, fuelling obsessions, arguments and agonising drama among players and spectators alike, every time it lands. Amateur or professional, the ball is at the heart of every single game.
Our task was to create a film to celebrate the Dunlop tennis ball. The unsung hero behind much of Dunlop’s success. We also had to combine our salute with the announcement of Dunlop as the official ball of the Australian Open. The tournament is the largest annual sporting event in the Southern Hemisphere, with more than 780,000 people attending in 2019.
