Seems to be a light soft foam or rubber ball that is used when teaching kids the game. It's almost like an instant success for beginners as the ball doesn't travel as fast giving the player time to hit.
In Europe there are competitions using a pressureless ball on a shortened tennis court but this is totally different.
