In order to cut the tennis balls, you will need a sharp knife. A serrated knife or a steak knife works well for this task. It is important to have a sharp knife so that you can make a clean cut and avoid damaging the ball.


Having a walker that is the correct height is important for maintaining your balance and stability while you are walking. If your walker is too tall or too short, it can cause you to fall. One way to customize the height of your walker is to cut tennis balls and place them on the legs of the walker. This will add some height to the walker and make it easier for you to use. Let’s get started.

Cut a small x on the tennis ball

Assuming you want to use two tennis balls for your walker:

-Take a sharpie and make an x on one side of each ball. The x should be big enough that you can fit the blade of your knife in it.
-Place the ball on a cutting board, with the x facing up.
-Carefully insert the blade of your knife into the x, and apply pressure until the knife cuts through the ball.
-Repeat with the other ball.

Cut 4 slits around the x

Carefully make a cut with a sharp knife around the “x” on top of the tennis ball. Make sure not to cut yourself, and be extra careful not to puncture the ball too deeply. You want to make four cuts that are about an inch long.

Turn the tennis ball inside out

Turn the tennis ball inside out. This will give you a flat surface to work with and will make cutting the tennis ball easier.


Cutting tennis balls for a walker is a quick and easy way to add some extra grip and stability to your walker. It’s also a great way to recycle old tennis balls! Here are a few tips on how to cut tennis balls for a walker.

Be sure to cut the slits deep enough

It’s important to make sure you cut the slits deep enough, otherwise the ball won’t grip the walker and could pop off. We recommend cutting about ½” deep.

Be careful not to cut yourself

When cutting the tennis balls, be careful not to cut yourself. The best way to do this is to use a sharp knife and make sure that you are not wearing any loose clothing that could get caught on the knife. It is also helpful to have someone else hold the ball while you are cutting it.
