I have about a case-worth of balls that are just too worn to practice with anymore so, I'd like to get rid of them. How do you usually get rid of balls? Just throw them in the trash can? Donate them?

I give them to my dog, too. However, don't try selling them to me, lol; I have my own constant supply... I can't leave my bag unzipped or the s.o.b. will serve himself; sometimes, with new ones :mad:

LOL @ Ripper's dog

I'd give them to my dog if I had one. I just put them up on CraigsList. I will definitely not be buying any Gamma Pressurized Practice Balls again. Went through those things way too fast. I almost feel better off just buying a case of regular Penn or Wilson balls and using those with my ball machine. The Gamma's lose a tonf of fuzz and bounce when being used with a ball machine.

Here, elementary school teachers love to get them. They cut them and place one on each leg of every kid's chair. It makes the room much quieter when the kids are getting up and down from their seats.

I posted them on CraigsList and some guy came over and grabbed them from me last night only a few hours later.

Give them to a high school baseball team. They're perfect for indoor, wet, spring practises.

I have always thought of donating them as the best thing to do. Old people's homes love to get tennis balls, they put them on the bases of walkers so they slide more easily...

as mentioned there are several places that gladly accept and need free used tennis balls. We donate ours to Public schools who cut them up and put on bottoms of desks and chairs.
as someone mentioned above, which I hadnt thought of--Old peoples Homes.

any animal shelter may take some etc...just make sure they havent been used much on Har tru or anywhere which theball may have absorbed a hazardous material.

This is what I do too. Just donate them-they're no good to you anyway.
