Default Basketball purchase


Special mission for anyone close/going to the Chinese shop today

Been visiting puerto pollensa for long time to the point where my lads are now teenagers and want to spend much of their time at the basketball court next to the square.

My question is; can I buy a basketball anywhere in PP please? I'm thinking the Chinese shop however I need a bit of a guarantee otherwise I can rush round before Saturday and try to find a deflated ball + pump combo that I can bring in our case.

Happened to read your post whilst I was in the car so popped to the Chinese shop to try and complete the mission.

Happy to say they do sell basketballs!
There are few blown up but weathered ones in a basket outside. There are also some deflated ones inside the shop in the toy section.
Not sure if they blow them up for you in there though sorry.

Hope this saves you a panic rush on your holiday build up

Have a great time

Wow - what a great service!

Thanks very much for popping in Toni!! Apologies if you got lost in there or spent money you wasn't planning too hah

I always keep an eye on the forum so hopefully I can pay it forward whilst we are on holiday and return the favour to someone else :-)

Or as a minimum make sure these sort of items all get passed to the Allen Graham charity shop 👍

Thanks again

You're very welcome

And don't worry, that place is like our second home anyway, we'll probably be in there again today for something or other

Thanks for supporting the forum.

Just a warning. They kept trying to stop me taking one through customs. Until I lost weight that is!
