For a good bounce, how much should you inflate your basketball?
A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best match 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 match!
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 - Men of all ages over 13
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.
