Hi Drea,

In general, atoms decrease speed when the temperature is lowered, and increase speed when the temperature is raised. So, the colder the tennis ball, the shorter the distance it will bounce. And the warmer the tennis ball, the farther the ball will bounce (to a point).

Check out this article on temperature on Wikipedia for more info.
