Great Tennis Balls
The Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty tennis balls live up to their name. A can of balls lasts through 3 sets of hard tennis and continues to serve as a great warm up or practice Ball after that.
Best Balls on the Market
Long lasting and good feel for play on hard courts. An improvement on the Pro Penns! I think they are the best balls on the market.

Penn Marathon Balls
I played with these balls over a period of several weeks and found them to be longer lasting, brighter, and higher bouncing. They definitely improve play in weaker players because they dont have to swing as hard. Meeting the ball late will cause a weak swing that will go into the net with other balls, but these will make it over. They will help play with beginners. Experienced players would like the extra drive these balls deliver. Consequently, they give you more satisfaction in your play.
Best Ball Ever
I will not buy any other ball. Very lively and lasts 3 times as long as regular balls. I have been playing for 30 years and am very happy with this ball.
ProPenn Marathon Tennis Ball
First rate product from Penn. Outlasts their championship ball by 30% approx. Cover retains bright yellow color far longer on all surfaces.
I use these balls for my weekly 2 hour serving sessions, 8 cans at a time. They last for about 3-4 sessions, which Id say is at least 25% longer life than other extra-duty usta approved balls. Will buy a case again soon.
Ive purchased racquets, accessories, and balls from Tennis Express. Very pleased with the fast and efficient service
ProPenn Marathon a real winner for us
I am league captain of the NetChix. We began using the ProPenn Marathon balls almost 3 years ago, and have never used anything else since! Advertised to be %22 longer lasting than other balls, we feel it is more like %50 or greater! They bounce higher, travel farther than any other ball we have used. I recommend them to all my tennis friends, try them people, youll never go back to something else!

Excellent quality ball. They last longer than regular balls.
Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty Balls Review
Ive never been a great fan of Penn balls. They are usually the cheapest balls you can find and usually just go dead quickly like in under an hour of play. My primary ball is Wilson U.S. Open for the past few years. So I bought these Pro Penns to check them out. So far the results are excellent. The are long wearing and dont go flat for several weeks without pressurizer. I typically play 3 times a week for several hours at a time. These balls will last about 4 hours for me in play, then up to two weeks for practice balls. So wear and playability the same as U.S. Open balls. The price is also the same, so I dont see much advantage over Wilson U.S. Open for me. If I could get these balls for 10$ cheaper a case then I would consider it a solid deal.

Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty Tennis Balls
Excellent service, delivered to my front door promptly, best tennis balls I have ever struck!
Great Online, Could Improve in the Store
I guess they were too busy. On the phone, the help has been good. RJ gave some good advice on potential rackets and Im going to try some out. I think the loaner program is great and Im looking forward to trying out the rackets this week.
The dogs love them!
One of the best made tennis balls Ive purchased. Need a heavy duty ball for my Chuck-it / dog play! These have been the ticket. Will be sure to order this case again when I need another case.
Plenty Good Tennis Ball Case
No complaints with the Pro Penn marathon extra duty case of tennis balls. They are just what I needed for match play and practice.
no complaints here
just ordered my case of pro penn extra duty and they perform great. Really like the brighter color and longer lasting bounce.
AND CHEAPER IN THE LONG RUN
Good consistent playing balls. Stay hit further. Go thru the wind much better. Cost a little more, but maintain performance twice as long, so theyre cheaper in the long run. Plus, I put the old ones in the washer and dryer, and hand them out on Halloween
Pro Penn Marathon Extra Duty
So far, the performance of the tennis balls has been great. Our tennis budget is small, so ball purchases are critical.
Thanks for your customer service also.

These are the best balls around. Ive played all my life and have tried a few. The Marathons just last. The pressure stays right and they dont fuzz or turn to speed balls. Ill usually hit a solid 1.5 hours, some drills and all baseline games so a lot of balls, and the balls are still good. Sometimes, Ill use them the next time if were just drilling. I played D1 college tennis so were hitting hard with a lot of spin. Buy Marathons.
