Purchasing tennis-balls while visiting London.

Hi, I'm leaving for London and Wimbly soon and I'm going to use the opportunity to purchase a slightly larger amount of tennis-balls. Does anyone know of a shop that has good prices on larger amounts of balls? I know there's a PWP outlet nearby Wimbledon, but was wondering if there were any shops in Central London. I'm not planning to carrying around a heavy box of tennis-balls so it would be nicer with a local shop as I will be having the car parked nearby Covent Garden. I'm vaguely familiar with London itself so directions with more or less known landmarks are very nice

Thanks in advance!

at wigmore sports if you buy 2 cans of Head balls, you get a third can free and that will cost either £15 or £17, depending on what sort you want. its actually in wigmore street, not wigmore lane and that shop is much bigger than the one in harrods
