What ball should you use?

The ball size depends on the player's age and gender. Size 1: Ages 3 and up Size 3: Girls and boys ages 4 to 6 Size 5: Boys ages 7 to 11 / Girls ages 7 to 13 Size 6: Boys ages 12 to 13 / Girls/Women ages 14 and up Size 7: Boys/men ages 14 and up 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.

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!

What height basket should you choose?

The official height of a basketball basket is 10' (rim height). If you want a kids' basketball basket, 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 8'6". After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets
