I have been wondering lately, where do people buy bulk TT balls for their clubs from?

Part of the chat is about getting good quality match balls, then getting large amounts of training balls. My local club is having this discussion now and it piqued my curiosity on what other clubs do re purchasing balls and where from.

Anything that you can pass on regarding your experience with bulk sales would be appreciated.

How many is bulk? Our club of 60 regular players just orders a box of 72 or so every now and then, maybe every few months or more. The balls we get can vary each time depending on what is cheaper and available.

We are beginners to intermediate players, top players perhaps US 1500-1800.

Our club, Sky High - CO, has recently started using the new Joola ABS Balls. The 3-star, Joola Prime, is an excellent ball and runs about $90 for a box of 72. The 1-star version of this ball, Joola Magic Balls, plays very well and runs about $50 for a box of 72. We mix the 3-star and 1-star together and most of our players, including higher level, rarely notice the difference and simply use whichever ball they pick up.

Bulk as in the range of one gross of balls. For each 3-star match ball and trainers. The club likes to buy in larger numbers to take advantage of economy of scale. For example a Box of 72 trainer balls would last about 3 months of play/training. Its not only losses due to breakages we suffer, but also loose some to light fittings and a mezzanine floor that has no access to it.

The Nittaku J-Top balls seem to be highly regarded for training or club balls. A buddy of mine who was tired of losing/breaking NP40+ balls picked some up to try and they do seem pretty good. The only anomaly I've noticed is an occasional bad bounce and those were few and far between.

I DO HATE SLICK BALLS.

The plastic balls would get shiny and slick unplayable, as soon as after 2 hrs of play. You had better to take to a mint-quality ball for each new playing session, at least.

D40+ (1 Star *) is our preferred one, price USD 0.28 + endurance + quality superior.
