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.
the only type of person that pays $5 for a can of balls and brags about playing competitive tennis for 15 years is a 'club' player. most clubs charge members 2-3x the cost of the balls and those members also tend to have the big fish in a small pond type of mentality.

that said, it's a decent price for decent balls.

16 cans = $29.99 + tax = around $1.90/can

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').
Got you. Pardon my ignorance. But I would not but my can balls in a tub.

I've actually never had a club membership. I played division II college tennis. Sorry if mentioning I played for 15 years bothered you, didn't mean to "brag".

Hi, I am new to tennis and besides taking lessons, I love it. My question is, how long is the shelf life of a tennis ball not in a sealed pressurized can, and one in a pressurized can. Also, maybe its me but I have found the Walmart balls die quicker. I have also found other products that Walmart sells is not as good quality as the same product from a different store. Hanes underwear told me when I was unhappy with the quality, they told me if I want better quality do not buy from Walmart, she told me target was next and kohl s was their best underwear. I now will not shop in Walmart. I have learned that they have the products made for them for their standards. Someone told me you get what you pay for. Thanks for listening

How much do you want to spend? Do you know what model you want?

I tend to buy used racquets off of tennis warehouse forums, but it involves some risk since you are using paypal but you can look up their trading ratings and usually used tennis racquets don't have high scam rates and you will be able to do a chargeback with paypal and/or you cc company...

These are some liquidation racquets sold directly by tennis warehouse.

====================================

Random question for you tennis guys...
Does the ball saver work? I had one for a while, but not sure how effective it is. The ball seems to be SLOWLY losing pressure. Also what happens as the ball starts to lose felt? Does it get faster/less bouncier?

I am new too after research I found and really like Head Liquidmetal 8. It is highly recommended for beginners. I got mine on eBay for about $70 bucks. Also, make sure you get the correct grip size for you.

I am looking to spend around $75. Looking for a little heavy racket around 95 to 105 size and 4 1/2 grip.

Dicks sporting goods should have some Head racquets in that price range.. I would spend a little bit more and get babolats from Tennis warehouse..

It depends on your level... If you are a 4-4.5 player, the second one is better
