You are purchasing 24 balls that have been retired from play. This can be because of a tear in the skin, or the foam has become softer than we prefer.
Dodgeball Winnipeg is committed to maintaining a quality experience, so we take special interest in the quality of the equipment we use. The moment a ball is discovered to have a tear it is removed from play, but some balls never get ripped and just eventually become soft so we retire them to keep the quality of play as high as possible. Regardless, what we retire is still very usable and you may be surprised to see just how good they are.
