What makes the tarmak k500 the ideal ball for your child to learn to play basketball?

Basketball is a sport that requires dexterity and agility. To make learning easier for children, we created a ball that is 30% lighter than other balls of the same size. This makes it easier for them to score and pass successfully. The outer cover has a polyester layer, making it softer than a standard ball. Little hands won't be hurt, which will help your child build confidence.

Why the k500 ball? it's the perfect ball for playing with the hoop 500 easy!

The Tarmak K500 ball is the perfect ball for playing with the Hoop 500 Easy (the Tarmak basketball hoop that can be set up anywhere). The K500 is a size 4 basketball that is lighter than a classic ball. It is the right size for the Hoop 500 Easy, and allows players, particularly younger children, to shoot from farther away!

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's the ideal pressure to get the right bounce from your k500 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. We recommend inflating your K500 ball to: 0.35 bars. Enjoy your game!

What height basket should you choose?

The official height of a basketball basket is 10 ft. (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 8'6". After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets.
