Shooting a small ball in sports

I've been shooting professional handball matches lately which involves following a small rubber ball (slightly bigger than a golf ball) at high speeds inside a 20 X 40' court. Casual viewers often have trouble following the ball because of it's size. What lenses/cameras/tricks can I use to make the ball as easy to see as possible?

I own a Sony Z1U, which doesn't allow for interchangeable lenses, but I usually rent other cameras for other angles.

Thanks for your help,

a great way to shoot handball is top down...we did a comercial for a raquet ball club and that shot proved best, however it was not easy and required good planning...
