So I was reading the xbee guide here:https://www.sparkfun.com/pages/xbee_guide, but I didn't see anything that said how multiple of these could be used.  Before I buy any of these, I wanted to make sure I could use multiple of them without interference.

For reference, I was going to try to put some accelerometers in different balls, and the easiest way to get the signal back to the control looked to be the xbee.  If you have any other suggestion on how to do this, I am very open to any suggestions.  Thanks a lot for any suggestions.

From what I understand there will be no problem, expect that if one Xbee outputs a signal all of them will receive it. If thats ok you should be good.

Not so. XBees can communicate point-to-point, point-to-multipoint, or in broadcast mode. Various network topologies are available depending on the specific XBee model.
