TECHNICAL INFORMATION
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're looking for a very durable ball, opt for one with a rubber cover. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.

What height basket should you choose?

The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height).
If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them.
For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best.
Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m.
After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets.
