The 6 Best Bulk Tennis Balls

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 21 times since it was first published in February of 2017. A frequent tennis player will go through hundreds of balls each year, as they often last for only a single match. That's why purchasing in bulk makes sense for serious competitors. It’s also a viable option for learners who are working with an instructor or loading up a machine on a regular basis. No matter which category you fall into, something from our list is sure to be suitable. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

1. Wilson Championship

2. Penn Extra Duty

3. Dunlop Championship

Editor's Notes

September 01, 2020:

Today’s update sees the addition of the Kevenz Standard, a set of vibrant neon green pressurized balls that work well for use in ball launching machines or practice sessions, or just for playing fetch with your pet. They’re made of natural rubber with a nonwoven polyester felt cover, and feature waterproof construction. Once caveat is some users have commented their seams aren’t always perfectly even, so this might affect their bounce to some degree. They do come in simple, environmentally friendly packaging that many appreciate. While these join the list, the Brighton Pressureless make their departure due to availability issues.

The Dunlop Championship move into a more prominent spot in today’s update, thanks to their reliable performance. They consist of hollow cores covered in heavy-duty felt, which makes them well suited for use on hard courts. They’re great for either recreational or club-level players, feature a crisp, bright color and are also available in a version designed for use at high altitudes. You can’t go wrong with the Wilson Championship or the Penn Extra Duty, both of which remain in the top two spots. They’re both from major players in sporting goods manufacturing and are made with durable, proprietary felt covers that will stand up nicely to heavy play. The Penn balls are the official choice of the USTA leagues. For another tried-and-true choice, look to the Gamma Premium, which sport a pressureless design that’s well suited for any type of court surface. Unlike many, these come in a hard plastic bucket with a carrying handle and a lid, which is a more durable alternative to the mesh bags many others come in.

August 15, 2019:

Along with a comfortable, sturdy tennis racquet, any serious tennis player or avid learner should have a bulk set of tennis balls on hand. You’ll find the right bulk selection here for your needs, whether you’re looking for pressurized (good for any type of court and used in all professional matches) or pressureless (great for learning, practice, or even playing fetch with your pooch).

Joining our list today are Dunlop Championship, which is officially endorsed by the worldwide Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) tour. They’re a durable choice that are well suited for both club and recreational players alike, thanks to their double cores and heavy-duty felt covers. They'll certainly hold up well in serious matches played on hard courts.

In addition, the Gamma Premium comes on board, featuring a pressureless design that’s great for learning tennis, playing friendly matches, or even spending a lazy afternoon throwing the ball to your dog. This versatile selection is suitable for any type of court, from clay to turf to grass to hard surfaces. They come with a durable plastic bucket that features a handle and lid, which makes for easy transport and storage.

Leaving today’s list, in order for us to focus exclusively on balls primarily made for adult humans, are the Petsport USA Tough Balls and the Gamma Quick Kids Training.
