Before the founding of New China. There are a few craftsmen in the Shanghai Street Alley. The tennis balls picked up by the children who are caddies on the tennis courts imitate the tennis balls in a gourd style. They are all handmade, and they can only make three or five balls a day. , Sell it to players and earn some money to make a living. After liberation, under the guidance of the government, these small proprietors united and established a small workshop-style factory called Tianfeng Badminton Factory, which was later renamed Xingjian Tennis Co., which was used for badminton and tennis. There were 13 workers at the beginning. . The production equipment is very rudimentary.

The tennis balls produced by the Xingjian Tennis Cooperative are called "Xingjian" brand, and the monthly output is only 600. At that time, the technician in the cooperative was Qiu Zaide, who was a rubber worker. He was learning by doing. The enlightenment teacher was a newspaper bought from an old bookstand. There was an article "How to Make Tennis". He studied hard and became a talent by himself. The first qualified tennis ball was made in 1956. It is also China's first goal.

Its economic strength, production scale and tennis manufacturing technology have been the first in China for the first time. .
