Great for Kid!

Even though it says 7-10 yrs old ball. It really depends on your child's grip and skill. Mine is 6 and he is doing great with it. Earlier he was playing with adult-size balls. Maybe that could be the reason that improved his grip.

Hello Gd,


Thank you for taking the time to write to us about your product experience. We truly appreciate your feedback.

Thanks & Regards,

Decathlon Brampton Team

Perfect basketball for kids!

It was the right size for my 7 year old boy, this size is tough to find elsewhere. Grip is not rubbery where it burns your kid’s fingers, and is closer to a grippy leather. It is durable as well, works well even on an outdoor court. Perfect for having your kid learn the proper shooting motion without worrying about the ball being too heavy

Hello Mark, we are so glad to hear it. Thank you so much for your detailed review, we appreciate it and are happy to know your child is enjoying it!

Wizzy Basketball a Winner

My 7-year-old granddaughter was delighted with this product. The great size, weight, and feel of the Wizzy made it a real winner with her and her siblings and cousins. The game was on as soon as the ball was out of the gift bag.

Good quality

For 5 year old boy (although tall for his age).

I was a bit worried it would be too big for him to reach the high hoop in the park. This ball is perfect.....lighter weight and very good surface for grip. He got a "basket" on second attempt and is now addicted!

What makes the tarmak wizzy the ideal ball for kids learning to play basketball?

Basketball is a sport that requires dexterity and agility. To make it easier for kids to learn to play basketball, we created a ball that is 18% lighter than other balls of the same size. This makes it easier for them to score and pass successfully. The outer cover has a foam layer, making it softer than a standard ball. Little hands won't be hurt, which will help kids build confidence.

What is the wizzy ball? the perfect ball for playing with the hoop!

The Tarmak Wizzy is the perfect ball for playing with the Hoop (the basketball hoop from Tarmak that can be set up anywhere). The Wizzy is a size 5 basketball that is lighter than a classic ball. It is the right size for the Hoop and means that any player, particularly younger kids, can shoot from farther away! The Wizzy balls range is designed to match the Hoops range so you can be completely coordinated!

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 / 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'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 subpar 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). Kids need a basketball basket 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.
