Technical Information

1
How much should you inflate your basketball?
A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best game 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 bar. Enjoy your match!

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 - Men of all ages over 13

What ball should you use?
If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.
4
What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (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 2.60m. After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets.

Response of the brand
Hello Andrew,
thank you for taking the time to write a review about the R700 size 7 basketball.
I'm sorry to understand that you're not completely satisfied with the product you purchased and want to remind you that, since you scanned your Decathlon Card while buying it, you'll have a full year to return the product at your Decathlon Store.
Regarding the ball, the "Magic Jam" technology that is inside it can make it feel heavier while holding it and, sometimes, also while bouncing it. If you haven't already, I suggest you to try to keep the air pressure at 0.62 bars and you'll see that your sports experience with it will get better.
Feel free to contact me directly if there is any other problem with the product.
Sportingly
