Tennis fans can now enjoy the sounds and spirit of Wimbledon right from their own home.
Sports heroes are running around the court in 2022, chasing and hitting highlighter-yellow Wimbledon balls to lift one of the most famous trophies in all of sports. Today, the Slazenger-emblazoned balls that defined Wimbledon’s high-stakes gameplay have found new life as novelty speakers.
The company made their mark on creating a sustainable path forward for tennis balls after they were “retired” from tournament play. Produced by hearO, the units are one-touch bluetooth speakers embedded in the shell of the actual tennis ball used on the iconic grass courts of the All England Club in the 2022 Wimbledon tournament.

The piece of functional championship engineering has a 3W speaker with a sonic range of 100 Hz to 20K Hz and a 500 mAh battery. The design blends each piece with a white speaker grill on one side of the hollow ball.
It is the ideal companion for tennis fans who want to own a timeless piece of the game’s history. The speaker comes complete with a stand and you can buy a two-piece set.
“The championship ball continues and becomes an icon of reuse,” hearO’s site reading. As with the company’s first inventions, every purchase of hearO 3.0 will result in the planting of a tree in collaboration with the European Nature Trust.
hearO 3.0 is sold now for $71.99.
