How much do you pay for tennis balls?

I usually pay here in Holland/Europe 8 Euros a can of 4 Wilson US Open balls, which is almost 10 dollars.
Or 3 cans of 3 balls for 15 Euros, which is like 18/19 dollars.
Isn't that redicilous?
I bought a pack of 4 US Open cans for 10 dollars at the sports Authority, when I was in the US.

4 cans of Dunlops (12 balls) for less than $8 at Walmart.

$10 for 4 balls is high.... but you guys have to play in those wooden shoes, so I imagine it makes the balls last a lot longer ;) JK!

Be thankful if you have nice courts there. Where I live its cheap balls, but rundown courts. Indoor courts? No way, not around here :(

What in Socal store gives you this deal?
Emailed you. Too bad TW doesn't carry them. I'm not rich or a pro so price on consumables (like balls) is very important to me. For the money, they play extremely well.

Thanks. I think with shipping and no tax it should be a good deal.

$8 for 4x 3-ball cans of Dunlop championships
$6 for a 4-ball can of Dunlop Championship balls here in Linköping Sweden. However that was in an special outlet. The "normal" general sports shops charge more than double that. I normally buy my balls via mail order (for around $6 a can).

it seems everything is cheaper in the US... rackets, balls, shoes, whatever. and too many options for everything.

Agreed!! Yes, just about everything in the US cheaper, and we have more choices, too! That's capitalism and market economics at work for you.

A 3 ball can is about $2. I always use Penn brand. They are the only ones ( that I know of) that I know of that are still made in the U.S.A.

I usually check out the Big-5's for sales. Recently, I bought a case of Wilson Titaniums for about $50 including tax. It came out to about 2.05 a can. I checked the case before I left and found a couple damaged cans. The people at the register replaced them no questions asked.

REMEMBER.......................there are cheapo "costco" and "walmart" balls bur for any player over 3.0 these are not worth the measley $1.99 you pay for them. You should be paying about $2.50-3.00 to get good balls, it makes a difference. Many have pointed out the Dunlop Grand Prix, this is a fine ball. Costs a bit more, but worth every penny. Cheapo balls do not have the same coating, weight or mass, and you can feel the difference when you hit. So, for all those who think you are clever buying crap balls at Costco, think again.

I actually practice with the titanium balls which is about $1.89 a can. They just last longer during practice. I like playing matches with the Dunlop Grandprix or the Penn ATP $4.00 a pop.
