What is the difference between the white and yellow TT balls?

Which is best to practice and standards?

I always choose the ball that stands out the most, with more contrast to the ambient color ^^

If both of the players are wearing a white shirt then go for yellow

only the color no difference in playing but players mostly like the white one theat's why its used more then the orange one but with orange ball you can't play with orange ball and the same for white

The color is just for contrast. It depends of the light that is on play zone if it's better to try the white or orange one.

I used to play TT in a squash court. I generally had no problem when looking downwards at the table using either colour ball. But once I was back from the table looking upwards I lost track of the ball whether orange or white.
This is not scientific, but look at this video. The camera has no problem when the ball is low over the table. But once the ball bounces high so the walls form the background, the camera loses the ball. That is, it more or less disappears from view. I don't think an orange ball would have helped.

when the latest plastic arrived, they only made white ones. I don't know if they have started to make orange or yellow ones. If you have the old yellow/orange ball they will be celluloid which play differently from new plastic

I am just making sure you know this thread is from 2014. So, from just before they switched to the 40+ Poly balls.

And the OP has not made a post since 2014.

There may have been a spambot that woke this up that one of the other moderators deleted.

Not a big deal. Just wanted to make sure you knew this was old. :)

Yes. Tibhar. I have a few but players don't like them. They were used at a tournament but even then the players weren't enthused.

Why didn't the players like them? We're still using orange celluloid balls but it looks like aliexpress sellers are finally running out of stock. I'm looking for a good 3* orange plastic ball.

IMO, they just did not like having to adjust. It's been a few years since orange balls were widespread.
