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 :lol:
they probably last 5 or so times before the bounce is noticeably different...its Jarrods turn to buy this time :lol:

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 :)

when i practice, ill reuse balls, but in a match, i try to play with a new can each time. a lot of the times, when the match is short, ill take them out for another round.

My friends know that I'm a frugal person. :unsure:

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

Why?
Sounds like a reasonable question to me? Its tennis related...do you not play tennis?
Theres many worse threads around than this...

For a serous match, new can.
Fr a 'freindly', maybe yes maybe no.

I save them used balls for serving practice until they die. They I cut them open and use them for feet on chair legs, so they don't squeak on the floor.

Damn, you're like Indians with the Buffalo...

...use all parts. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I usually give my balls away after the match since I remember how happy I used to be when someone gave me "once used" balls back in "da day". :cool:

Where is the option for "I use them until all the fuzz has come off and they bust open, and then for a few more weeks afterwards" ?

Actually seeing as I find about 2 stray balls every time I play, my collection is so large that I can rotate them and always have 4 decent ones to use.

It`s the job of the tournament organisation to provide new balls.

Tretorn pressureless...they are really cool. Not exactly like the pressured ones but as I am not a competitive player, they get their job done :)

I donīt play matches because of my terrible serve, my hittingmate would break me every single game. Itīs a pity because Iīd love play competitively.
However I use the same balls for about 6-8 one hour trainingsessions. When trying to get my serve together, I might use really old and slow balls.

I'm kind of "Stray ball finder" and "Till the fuzz is gone".

I don't like balls from pressurised containers cos you have to thump the heaviness out of them.

At least where I buy them.

About three practice matches. I mean, I guess it depends on how many balls are hit in a match- if you are hitting weak, there is less action, right?

I keep balls until they absolutely GO DEAD! There is no need to buy a new can every match. It is wasteful, and there are many people interested in tennis who can't even afford balls. You need to think about that :rolleyes:

If you are pretty serious about tennis like I am, then balls that are 20% dead aren't good. My brother and I played with dead balls one time and all of our shots were going in the court even with terrible positioning and huge swings. It isn't a good way to practice if you want to perform during tournaments.
