The pair had an argument with Kelly Machin after she burst the ball before throwing it back in a dispute in Leicester, in August last year.
The father and daughter were back at the same court where they were jailed for what police described as a “devastating” crime.
After the attack on August 23 last year, Machin was treated in hospital and later discharged, Leicestershire Police said.
But she was then discovered dead on her sofa by a concerned friend, having succumbed to internal bleeding – nearly two weeks later.
Speaking after sentencing, Detective Chief Inspector Martin Smalley of East Midlands Special Operations Unit said: “A seemingly minor incident resulted in a person losing their life.
“The defendants’ actions on that day were excessive and they attacked Kelly without regard for the consequences.
“They now face a lengthy prison sentence and two families have been left devastated.”
