How Often Do You Use A Can Of Tennis Balls?

I use them about 2 times before getting out new ones.

I use a new can for every match. When I was young and didn't have much money, I would use them till they practically died on the court!

2 times? i probably use a can for 5 to 6 times, they still have good bounce left in them after a while

would love to have a new can each time we play
they probably last 5 or so times before the bounce is noticeably different...its Jarrods turn to buy this time

Well I don't really play matches...but whenever I play, I just play and play and play until the ball is annoyingly flat and won't bounce.

I actually like flat balls (not flat because the air's all out but flat because it's wet or it's made for high altitudes) because they help me with consistency

My friends know that I'm a frugal person.

My only luxury, other than budget travel & expensive beer , is that I always play with new balls (Wilson 3 if I paid for them )
