Recreational use

"Leisure" balls are perfectly suitable when you're just starting out. Some are made of plastic and foam. Lighter and less likely to cause injuries, these balls help young players learn basic skills (passing and kicking).

Beach rugby balls can also be used for recreational purposes. Attractively designed, they can also withstand the conditions (salt, sand). As size 3 balls, they are easier to handle on the beach.

FOR TRAINING AND REGULAR MATCH PLAY

It's important to distinguish between balls for training and match balls. 

"Training" balls must offer good grip and be hard-wearing so they can last throughout the season. All balls are handsewn (from our 300 range), which means they have robust panels, and are well assembled so as to travel smoothly through the air. 

The key difference with "match" balls is the balance of the ball, its density, and ball feel. The positioning of the valve on the stitching is a sign the ball will be properly balanced and will offer improved flight through the air when passed and kicked. A heavier and better balanced ball makes for better feel and quality of play.

Proper care of your match ball is essential if it is to stay at its best for longer and offer optimal grip, among other factors. Deflating your ball on a regular basis will reduce pressure on the stitching and extend its lifespan.
