I live in the United States and have been playing tennis competitively for 15 years. Have never paid anything less than $3-5 for this specific type of penn tennis balls.

Amazon is selling it for $103:

My terriers would lose their mind over this many tennis balls though and my neighbors have been pissing me off...


Tried tennis it uhm, it didn't end well. Right up there with golf in the things that require an attention span category.

Oh, gosh, golly...Anything over $2.25 for Penn Championship means paying for the convenience of buying at the courts. Sports Authority has the eight-pak that includes one can of ATP balls for $19.99 regularly(use your 20% off coupon and stock up)...so $2.50/can is top dollar around here.

This would be the same Penn Championship balls sold by Costco for years in the 15/16 can case for thirty bucks, so the WalMart price is pretty standard for the SA, Academy, Target crowd.

Personally, I'd still buy the Dunlop Extra Duty balls if I could find them. I still prefer those over Penn or Wilson.

BTW, I've been 'retired' for about 5 years; but put in my 30 as a teaching pro, shop manager, sales rep and stringer.

Costco is the best deal on the $29.99 for 16 cans which is under $2 a can

I bought the heck out of the Costco plastic tub o' Penns back a decade or so. Lost a little interest when they switched to the cardboard 'case'; but still a good deal.Wink I've still got a couple of the clear tubs out in the garage. We used them at the club for all sorts of storage.Wink

I hope you know that tub balls are different from regulation balls in pressurized cans.

I agree with you, this is not such a good deal.

It's a good deal if you consider you don't need to set foot into a wall mart, Costco, sports authority ect. Shipping is $3. Time is money.

Thanks for the tiplaugh out loud Did I mention 'thirty years in the tennis business' ?

The 'tubs' carried by Costco(BTW, I never saw that same tub offered anywhere else) held individual pressurized CANS of the same quality Penn Championship balls as you would find anywhere. The tubs were a particularly handy way to transport the balls and made for great storage bins later on...much more fun than a cardboard box.nod

OK, my curiosity got to me...checked the garage and found a 'tub' with a sticker still on it...
15 Cans, America's #1 Selling Ball...Extra Duty Felt...Championship Ball..Made In USA !!!

So, it's been a while since this particular packaging was used; but the Penn Championship Ball now sold in the cardboard 'case' is the same quality(Made in China) as the single can you buy at the pro shop or club(as was the case 'back then').

I don't mean to suggest it's not a 'good' deal. Heck, if you saw what goes into the production of a tennis ball, you'd think they were three bucks EACH !Big Grin

This deal is not bad, just not fantastic relative to the street price(vs the WAY inflated 'zon price or 'suggested retail').

Especially if you're agoraphobic or someone actually pays you to just 'be'(as is apparently the case with SlickCanon), then this price for balls with a small delivery charge is certainly slick-ish...just no need to speak of tennis balls costing $5 per can in order to juice this deal.Wink
