Why learn to play basketball with the Tarmak R300 ball?
The Tarmak R300 basketball is perfect for beginners. Ball handling is enhanced thanks to the deep grooves and pebbled cover. The foam rubber (air is injected into rubber, which creates a softer consistency) makes contact softer. Its filament winding is made from 100% Polyester, ensuring good quality bounce. Very durable for indoor and outdoor use.
What ball size to choose?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs) Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groups Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age group Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11 Size 7: Boys ages 13 and up, and men.
What ball should you use?
If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.
For a good bounce, how much should you inflate your basketball?
A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated will deliver a sub-par playing experience. The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer. Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge so that you can be more precise. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bar. Enjoy your game!
