  • overview
  • product details
Tennis balls are made with an internal pressure of 14 PSI, and packaged in a pressurized can. Pressure is released when you open the can and pressure in the ball escapes through it's porous rubber. Hitting the ball during play forces the internal pressure to escape even more. Balls lose new bounce quickly after you open the can.

Tennis Ball Saver surrounds the balls with 14 PSI pressure during storage. This stops the natural leakage from balls. Also if stored for about 4-8 weeks, it will force pressure back into the balls giving them new ball bounce. To test balls, drop them from 100" To be good they should bounce over 53".

If you're tired of throwing away tennis balls after one use because they're dead, then you definitely need to get a tennis ball saver. The tennis ball saver keeps balls pressurized, just like the can, so they won't go flat as quickly. Plus, it's almost the same size as a tennis ball can, so it will fit right into your bag.

Don't throw good balls away for lack of bounce. Keep them fresh in a Tennis Ball Saver.

          Comments about Gexco Enterprises Tennis Ball Saver:

          This simple item has not changed a bit since I bought one previously around 20-25 years ago, nor does it need to. I play social/casual matches about twice weekly on clay courts and I would say this thing about doubles the reasonable life of my regular duty (soft court) balls. You should understand it is not meant to rehabilitate or re-pressurize balls that are already flat. But putting them back under pressure between outings noticeably delays the process in my experience. You will probably still want fresh balls for competition or league play, and very high level or discriminating players might consider this inadequate all the way around. But as a regular casual player this saves me money by keeping my balls descent for longer. In addition to reducing cost, I feel good about reducing the rate of waste. My dog loves the used tennis balls but he only needs so many :) Holabird had the best price on this and it arrived quickly. Shipping was free since I picked up a great sale shirt as well thus making the $25 minimum.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Perfect, and fast

          • Q:

            Would this work for raquetballs?

              A:

              Racquetballs are no longer pressurized, so the tennis ball saver wouldn't work with the balls.

          • Q:

            Got the new Tennis ball saver. How to you open it. I try to unscrew but it is hard. Do I apply more pressure to unscrew?

              A:

              The Tennis ball saver can be opened by twisting with some pressure. The grooves should twist to align before lifting.

          • Q:

            Does it return the pressure back into old tennis balls that have already gone flat?

              A:

              Over time, this unit can force air pressure back into flat tennis balls and repressurize them, but this process usually takes about a month.

          • Q:

            How does one put the necessary 14 lbs of air pressure into this device?

              All you have to do is put the tennis balls inside and screw on the lid.

              Answered on 12/12/2012 by Ryan from Holabird Sports
            • A:

              The way this tennis ball saver works is you squeeze the top and bottom together. When you do this, the o-ring compresses the air inside to 14 psi.
