Hello Dinesh,


Thank you for writing in with your comments. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.


Our basketball R500 is designed for beginners practicing 3-4 days week. Thanks to its rubber outer covering it is very durable and Can go longer between re-inflations thanks to a bladder made with 30% butyl.


Although it's natural for product to loose air after some time but if the product is loosing air within 2-3 days then you can either check for a puncture or there could be some leakage. If there is a leakage in the product you can get your product exchanged at your nearest store as leakage is covered under warranty.


Feel free to write back to me / call us if you need help in choosing the right product for your usage and help you in your basketball journey!


Thank you for choosing Tarmak.


Thanks and regards,

Why learn to play basketball with the tarmak r500 ball?

The Tarmak R500 basketball is perfect for beginners. Ball handling is enhanced by the deep grooves and pebbled cover.Foam rubber (air is injected into rubber, which creates a softer consistency) for softer impacts.Its 100% polyester filament winding ensures 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 / Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and teams)Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groupsSize 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 so that you can be more precise.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 basketball basket for your kid, 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, team baskets are set at 8'6”. After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets.
