Hello Arvind,

I apologise for your unpleasant experience with the R300 Basketball. We take great care to ensure we test our products in real world conditions to satisfy our users. There are generally 2 reasons why a ball changes it's shape after use 1. Too much air inflated in the ball 2. Too much pressure applied to the ball.

I would kindly request you to take the product to the nearest store to get the ball checked / exchanged in case of a manufacturing defect. Additionally if you have any questions on choosing the right ball for your usage, feel free to contact me / connect with us on our helpline. I have also shared below a link to our entire basketball range to help you. We thank you for choosing Decathlon to join you in your basketball journey and we hope to continue to help you! I've given some links to help you explore our range

It is shinning

Really good quality...

I like the grip on this ball. The colour and design are good too.

Es el tercer balon q compro

He comprado tres balones de esta marca 2 amarillos y este azul. El primero amarillo creo q son talla 5 ha salido fatal. El segundo esta por ver y este azul de momento bien. Precios razonables.

sólo falta que el balón entre solo por el aro

Buen balón para jugar en pistas de cemento.

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. Foam rubber (air is injected into rubber, which creates a softer consistency) for softer impacts. 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 gender. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / 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're looking for a ball with a good ball feel, choose a leather or synthetic ball.

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 for a more precise inflation. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bars. Enjoy your game!

Did you know that all tarmak products are tested in the lab and in match conditions?

The design team behind the TARMAK products is based at Kipstadium in Northern France. It constantly aims to make basketball a more enjoyable experience.
