    TW does not ship them overseas. Do you know any US or other internet seller that ships cans of balls to other countries?

    They cost 3 times more in Europe, it's much too expensive. Is anyone from Europe that buys balls from outside of their countries, and if so, from which internet retailer?

    How much are balls there? Three times higher, so like 6 bucks a can? That's a little steep for sure.

    We're paying around Aus$14 for a can of 4. A cheap source would be good to have.

    g o l f s m i t h . c o m sells individual cans, ships them oversees, and price per can is lower then in a box of 24 cans at TW.

    neo, I checked the site and they do ship internationally. But they only ship them through UPS which is out of the question. The shipping cost is double the cost of the balls, I checked.

    Nobody on this forum has ordered balls from overseas, especially from USA? Where do you guys buy your cans/cases of balls??

    I'm sick of paying 8 bucks per can and I'm sure a lot of you are too!.

    If you buy a few cans of tennis balls only, sure international shipping costs will make it not worthwhile. But next time you make some substantial purchase, just add those 8 cans of Penn balls to your order for $16 (just $2 per can, way cheaper then at TW).

    Wow. Just go on a vacation. San Francisco is great. Buy maybe 3 boxes of balls? Go back. Great excuse.
